Tottenham displeased over Mourinho’s public training session in lockdown
Tottenham Hotspur have been left unimpressed by manager Jose Mourinho’s decision to organize a public training session with record signing Tanguy Ndombele during lockdown on Tuesday, reports the Evening Standard.
Jose Mourinho was pictured on Hadley Common in Barnet in full Spurs’ training kit with the 23-year-old Ndombele along with two members of the public.
Two more Tottenham players, Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez, were found in breach of lockdown regulations, jogging together in the same area as Mourinho was conducting his training session. The duo are believed to have come across their manager, but were not active participants in the training session (h/t Evening Standard).
This has left the club displeased as this was against official government guidelines specified during the country-wide lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic (h/t Evening Standard).
The regulations from the government state that all individuals should stand at least two metres apart at all times, and exercise outdoors can only be undertaken with one other person from your own household (h/t Evening Standard).
Following the incident, the report states that senior club officials have spoken to Mourinho to remind of his responsibilities after having been left unimpressed by the Portuguese’s decision to go ahead with the outdoor training session. A Spurs spokeperson also said (h/t Evening Standard):
“All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message.”
