Jose Mourinho and Tottenham stars defy lockdown rules with public training session

Jose Mourinho and Tottenham stars defy lockdown rules after being spotted with a public organised training session in a park based in London.

Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon have been criticised after footage showed the jogging side-by-side together, however new photos have shown the Spurs boss doing drills with three of his players on Hadley Common.

Tanguy Ndombele was also reportedly present and Serge Aurier was seen running alongside a friend in a separate video.

Members of the public are advised to keeping a gap of two metres, as it’s described as one of the most effective methods to tackle the outbreak of Covid-19.

Mourinho’s backroom staff have been putting the players through their paces individually via video link training sessions from the comfort of their own homes. Just shows they can abide by the rules…

Spurs and all other football clubs have been placed on lockdown along with the rest of the country in order to try and halt the infection rate escalating, with footballers told to train at home and alone.

It is understood, however, that Mourinho was spoken to by senior officials at the club, who were unimpressed with the manager.

A Tottenham Hotspur spokesperson said: “All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors.

“We shall continue to reinforce this message.”

Sadiq Khan told BBC Breakfast that Tottenham Hostpur should be leading by example.

It is the latest incident in which Premier League footballers have ignored the lockdown guidelines.

It started when Chelsea’s Mason Mount took part in five-a-side football despite being told to self isolate after teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for coronavirus.

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish was apologied after he partied at a friends house and was later pictured next to a crashed car.

And, over the weekend, Kyle Walker invited ‘two escorts to his flat for a sex party’ while being in lockdown.

Walker said his “actions were in direct contrast to what I should have been doing regarding the lockdown”, with his apology coming a week after Grealish was also caught breaking out of lockdown.

In the UK alone, the death toll has now broken the 6,000-barrier after 758 deaths were recorded in England alone on Monday on the deadliest day so far.

NHS England confirmed the latest victims were aged between 23 and 102 – with the 23-year-old having no underlying health conditions.
