Jose Mourinho defies social distancing rules, holds training session

Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho, has defied social distancing order by holding a training session in a London park.

Despite case in the UK, the ex-United manager was pictured doing drills with three players on Hadley Common in North London yesterday.

The Sun reports that JOSE could face a police warning after going against the rules laid down to curb the spread of the deadly virus.

Spurs have also warned their stars not to break social distancing guidelines after two separate videos posted online showed players ignoring the advice to stay at least 6ft apart.

A club spokesperson said: “All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message.”

Record signing Tanguy Ndombele was spotted training with Jose while, Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were exposed by an online video which showed them jogging around the same park less than the government’s recommended two metres apart.

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