Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso apologize for breaking Covid-19 regulations to celebrate Christmas

A report by football.london mentions that Tottenham Hotspur duo Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso have issued an apology after breaking Covid-19 protocol during the festive season.

Lamela and Lo Celso, along with new signing Sergio Reguilon, gathered on Christmas to celebrate with their families.

The government has placed London in tier 4. This means that the players broke the protocol to meet and celebrate the festival together.

The news of this incident broke on Saturday morning ahead of the Lilywhites’ 3-0 win over Leeds United. Since then, the club has issued a statement which promises that the matter would be dealt ‘internally’.

Erik Lamela one of the 3 Tottenham Hotspur players to break Covid-19 rules.

Facing the consequences

Reguilon did not make the starting XI against Leeds United. On the other hand, Jose Mourinho left Lamela out of the matchday squad completely.

Lo Celso is currently recovering through injury. And now, the Argentine duo has released statements to apologize for their actions.

Lamela posted on his Twitter account saying that he regrets his actions and appreciates the effort put it in by the people who are working to keep everyone safe.

“I want to apologise for a decision I made over Christmas which I deeply regret. On reflection I understand the seriousness of my actions and the impact it has on others.”
