Jose Mourinho rules-out lockdown orders and held Tottenham training session

Tottenham are generally reported to be ‘very unimpressed’ with Jose Mourinho following the Spurs boss defied government lockdown measures to hold a workout with three first-team athletes on Tuesday.

With the Premier League currently suspended as a result of coronavirus crisis, most players have already been given individualized coaching programmes to keep their physical fitness up as they await a date for when the campaign can safely continue.

Spurs happen to be holding training sessions on Zoom so that players can enjoy some interaction with the fitness coaches but Mourinho clearly feels particular members of his squad need increased one-on-one attention.

According to the Evening Standard, Mourinho held a workout session in Barnet on Tuesday for Tanguy Ndombele, Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon.

Though social-distancing was observed, the UK government have repeatedly encouraged the public to never socialize with anyone they are not isolating with, while ventures outside ought to be kept to a bare minimum.

Spurs are said to be ‘very unimpressed’ with Mourinho’s decision, which shows that the team had been unaware of his actions.

The move is unfortunate timing for Spurs, who have suffered heavy criticism already this week following Daniel Levy’s decision to furlough all non-playing staff.
