Jose Mourinho & co. accused of putting lives at risk

According to the Daily Mail, the British government has launched a scathing attack on Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur players for breaching lockdown regulations.

They were accused of putting lives at risk after they were pictured on Hadley Common taking part in a public fitness session. The players pictured were Tanguy Ndombele, Davinson Sanchez, Ryan Sessegnon and Serge Aurier (h/t Daily Mail).

Following the outcry, Mourinho was forced to admit he was in the wrong.

A government spokesperson has stated that the rules are the same for everybody. He urged everyone to stay home and do their part in helping the NHS save lives (h/t Daily Mail).

“You should only exercise by yourself or with your household and you should stay two meters away from anyone else at all times. Anyone not doing this is endangering people’s lives.”

Spurs too took offense at the manager’s antics and informed him of the same. He accepted he made an ill decision and reiterated the need for everyone to play their part in ensuring the governmental advice is followed (h/t Daily Mail).

An ill-advised decision

The club also reminded the players involved of their responsibilities. Mourinho pointed out that Ndombele and he stayed the required distance apart. He believes his actions reflect his professionalism and commitment to the job (h/t Daily Mail).

Jose Mourinho has admitted his mistake

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that they have received no complaints about Mourinho or his players. They also urged everyone to respect the social-distancing guidelines (h/t Daily Mail).

Although we don’t question the Portuguese tactician’s commitment to his job, we feel it was an ill-advised move top conduct a training session of any nature, regardless of the precautions taken.

Football does not seem to be on the agenda at the moment. It makes no sense to have conducted this session when urgency is not the need of the day.

Players from other clubs are in self-isolation with a number of them, including Spurs, making use of technology to stay fit. Mourinho and the players’ antics have painted the club in a bad light, especially given the flak we have taken for furlouging the non-playing staff.
