Tottenham Hotspur reminded his staff of their responsibility during confinement in the United Kingdom due to the new coronavirus pandemic, after the publication of photographs and videos of their coach Jose Mourinho and some players breaching the social distancing measures recommended by the British government.

The Portuguese coach was photographed training with Tanguy Ndombele at Hadley Common, while two other players, Colombian Davinson Sánchez and Frenchman Ryan Sessegnon, were seen working out together in a public park north of London.

For his part, the Ivorian defender Serge Aurier posted a video on Instagram running alongside another person.

The Premier League has been suspended since mid-March due to the new coronavirus pandemic, which caused 786 deaths in the last 24 hours, for a total of 6,159 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, forcing the British government to enact strict measures that Although they do not prevent citizens from exercising once a day, it is recommended that two people be separated by at least two meters, even if they belong to the same family.

“All of our players have been reminded that social distancing measures must be observed when exercising abroad,” said a Spurs spokesman.

“We will continue to insist on that message,” he added.

Tottenham is already facing strong criticism for availing itself of the government plan to pay with public funds up to 80% of the salary of its staff forced not to work due to the pandemic, when the president of the Spurs, Daniel Levy, collected seven million pounds ( $ 8.7 million) last season.
