Spurs and Mourinho flout social distancing

Jose Mourinho has accepted his actions were out of line with government protocol after being pictured flouting coronavirus social-distancing guidelines.

 Mourinho was pictured leading a training session with record signing Tanguy Ndombele on Hadley Common.

Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were filmed running together through the same London park.

Serge Aurier posted a video of himself on Instagram jogging alongside another.

Spurs said they have spoken to the players to “remind them to respect” the current guidelines.

The BBC reports Mourinho as saying: “I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household.

“It is vital we all play our part and follow government advice in order to support our heroes in the NHS and save lives.”

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said the players and Mourinho should be leading by example.

The Premier League has been suspended since March because of the pandemic.

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

“We shall continue to reinforce this message.”

ClaretandHugh says: Listen Jose this isn’t hard. Social distancing means being two metres from each other and given the advice we are getting in a torrent from Government and elsewhere this isn’t hard to understand. For once Sadiq Khan has it right when saying such people should be leading by example and once again Spurs has plunged itself into really dark waters by finding someone with a camera has shopped them. After the furloughing of non football staff whilst claiming their own extraordinary salaries some inside the club need to take a good look a themselves after this latest incident. We are not being holier than thou here because Declan had of course found himself involved in a kickabout with his mate Mason Mount a few wekks back and in all honesty should have known better. But for the manager and a group of players to be ‘forgetting the scenario as we approach what most think will be the peak of the thing engulfing is really isn’t on. Is it?
