Tottenham Hotspur is looking forward to reemphasizing the importance of social distancing to its playing and non-playing squad especially during this moment when a pandemic is ravaging the earth. Some players of the club and manager, Jose Mourinho, were seen to have broken the social distancing protocol after a video surfaced online showing them training.
Tottenham’s defender Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were seen running very closely together which seemed to have contravened the social distancing order stated by the government to stop the spread of the novel Covid-19. Also, Jose Mourinho was seen in his training outfit overseeing an improvised training session for Tanguy Ndombele. However, Mourinho was quite keen that all the social distancing protocols were fully obeyed during the training sessions.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur has reacted to the incident by reiterating the important rules and regulations given by the government and health authorities to stop the coronavirus crisis which has led to the suspension of football activities for some weeks now. In a statement released by the club which stated: “All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message,” a Spurs spokesperson said via The Guardian.
Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs manager earlier this season. However, the Portuguese man has not been able to prove his worth to the Premier League since he came on board as Spurs coach. While many may have thought the Spurs are not so cool with his Mourinho’s performance so far with the team sitting on the right position in the league table.
The club stated: “We’re happy with Mourinho. He brought a new freshness,”
“We aren’t going to spit on what Pochettino did, he brought the club to a new level, but now our future is Jose Mourinho.
“We have objectives, fourth place is still doable. We’re going to do everything.
“At one point, we had a lot of games, injuries, important players missing. The team was put in difficulty, we had bad results, we’re aware of that.
“If we have the chance to start the league again, everyone will be fit. We’ll be at full strength.”
