Davinson Sanchez explains himself on social media
Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho drew flak both from the club and the government for his ill-advised training session on Hadley Common with a number of players (h/t Football.london).
Although the Portuguese insisted that both he and the players ensured proper distancing protocols were maintained, it does not take away from the fact that he should not have done what he did (h/t Football.london).
One of the players involved, defender Davinson Sanchez has taken to social media to give his version of the events (h/t Football.london).
The Colombian got caught up in the controversy after he was caught on video appearing to run side-by-side with team-mate Ryan Sessegnon.
Sanchez took part in posting the #PlayersTogether statement where Premier League players came together to help the NHS through a new charity. The defender then went on to make a point by showing him out running on his own on Instagram. It was accompanied by the caption ‘This is it” (h/t Football.london).
The British government has launched a scathing attack on Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur players for breaching lockdown regulations (h/t Daily Mail).
Mourinho and the players were accused of putting lives at risk by the government. The other players pictured were Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon and Serge Aurier (h/t Daily Mail).
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.
