Mourinho accepts park session was wrong


Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho accepts he was wrong to hold a personal training session with Tanguy Ndombele in a public park.

Spurs were forced to remind staff about social distancing rules after Mourinho was pictured taking a one-on-one training session with the midfielder on Hadley Common in Barnet, north London on Tuesday.

Fellow Spurs players Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were also spotted running side by side in a separate session, while Serge Aurier filmed himself on Instagram running alongside a friend.

Government guidelines state people should only leave their home for “very limited purposes”, including one form of exercise each day – “alone or with members of your household”.

The Portuguese said: “I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household.

“It is vital we all play our part and follow government advice in order to support our heroes in the NHS and save lives.”

While Mourinho accepts he was in the wrong by holding the session, it was an isolated incident, with group sessions taking place online.
