Tottenham Hotspur is said to be “very unimpressed” after Jose Mourinho led a training session for at least one player on Tuesday.
England is currently in lock down with “government-enforced measures meaning people can only go outside for food, health reasons or work if you cannot do it from home.”
Several reports say Mourinho ran Tanguy Ndombele through individual paces while Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez jogged separately at Hadley Common in North London.

“All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message,” said a Spurs spokesman in the report.
It’s irresponsible at best from Mourinho. Even if he felt he could skirt the government’s rules in a pandemic — not a good idea at all — he has to have the presence of mind to recognize that he’s one of the most recognizable soccer faces in a soccer-mad country.
#thfc To clarify, I'm told Mourinho arranged a 1v1 session with Ndombele, and Sess/Sanchez were jogging together separately (albeit they likely came across the other two).
