“I accept” – Jose Mourinho issues statement after breaking lockdown rules



Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho accepts breaking lockdown rules

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has accepted to have broken lockdown rules after he was pictured conducting an outdoor training session on Tuesday (h/t BBC Sport).

Pictures of Mourinho training with midfielder superstar Tanguy Ndombele along with a couple of members of the public at the Hadley Common in Barnet emerged on Tuesday. Two more of our players, Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon, were seen jogging in the same area.

This had left the club unimpressed as the manager and his players was seen flouting the social-distancing rules specified by the government during the country-wide lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A report from the Evening Standard had claimed that senior club officials had spoken to Mourinho to reprimand him for the actions. And now, the Portuguese tactician has accepted to have violated the social distancing rules (h/t BBC Sport).

“I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household.”

The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager then went on to stress that it is vital for everyone to adhere to the regulations put in place by the government in order to help and support the ones battling the pandemic on the frontline (h/t BBC Sport).

The session was scheduled by Mourinho to help our midfielder Tanguy Ndombele (h/t Mirror). The 23-year-old, who arrived last summer in a club record £55m deal, has struggled to adapt to the rigours of Premier League football. The Frenchman’s fitness has also been a major problem during his stint with us so far.

So, Mourinho, who has been very critical of Ndombele in the recent past, was keen on working with the 23-year-old and helping him overcome his problems (h/t Mirror).

While it is good to see Mourinho going the extra mile to help a player who has struggled this season, the Portuguese should have been adherent to the rules put in place by the government. Hopefully there are no repeats of such incidents from our players and manager moving forward.
