Might as well keep the players (and boss) where you can see them, right?

Tottenham Hotspur is opening its training fields to players for individual sessions beginning Tuesdays, a welcome sign of soccer in a globally troubled time.

The players will get to use the selected fields “on a strict rotational basis” as the club hopes to return to the pitch sooner rather than later.

From Spurs official release:

Each player will travel independently and arrive at the facilities already dressed in training wear before returning home immediately after they have concluded their session.

All activity will be conducted in line with government guidelines with social distancing maintained at all times and there will be no access permitted to any building on site.

It’s been a rough time for Spurs in the headlines, as Moussa Sissoko and Serge Aurier apologized for breaking governmental guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic.

That came after manager Jose Mourinho was forced to apologized for training Tanguy Ndombele in a public park while two other Spurs players ran nearby.

The return to training grounds is a positive sign for any of us hoping to see live soccer in the Premier League as well as a safe return to normalcy. Fingers are crossed.
