‘Idiots’- Piers Morgan does not hold back with his assessment of Jose Mourinho and Spurs

Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid have both slammed the Spurs players and Jose Mourinho for breaking the government’s guidance by ignoring social distancing protocols while training outdoors.

Mourinho was pictured supervising a training session with Tanguy Ndombele in a local park defying the government’s request to only exercise with other people from the same household

Meanwhile, Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez were seen jogging together without observing the stipulated two metres of distance from each other.

The Spurs boss has unequivocally apologised for failing to follow the Government’s instructions (Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick).

That didn’t stop Morgan and Reid from both blasting the Tottenham boss and the players for their ill-conceived idea.

Morgan, who is a die-hard Arsenal fan, said during Wednesday morning’s episode of Good Morning Britain (as relayed by the Express): “On a less positive note, we have found more idiots, I’m afraid. What are you thinking José? What are you thinking players?

“Tottenham, at the moment, quite rightly, getting vilified as a club for the decision taken by their billionaire owner Joe Lewis and their chief executive Daniel Levy to furlough staff when they’ve got gazillions to spend on players.

“And now we see the players and the manager having an unofficial training session, apparently not sanctioned by the club.”

Meanwhile, Susanna is quoted as saying: “You can go out and do your exercise, but don’t abuse the right to do your exercise.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It is not often that I agree with Piers Morgan but he is right in saying that this is the last thing the club needed to be dealing with at a time when they were already coming under massive criticism for furloughing their staff. I have no doubt that Levy would have let the players and Mourinho know in no uncertain terms how stupid their decision was.
