Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has asked Spurs fans not to jump to conclusions regarding the identity of the Tottenham Hotspur employee who tested positive for COVID-19 based on training pictures and videos.
Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff are continuing to put the Spurs squad through their paces as they look to get them match-fit in time for the clash against Manchester United on June 19.
The squad participated in an internal eleven vs eleven match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Friday, with almost all first-team players involved.
However, there were some absentees, including the likes of Giovani Lo Celso, Japhet Tanganga, Paulo Gazzaniga, and Davinson Sanchez.
Some Spurs fans on social media feared that certain absences could be a sign that they were the ones who tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday.
However, Gold has now eased those fears by revealing that an absence in training ground pictures and videos does not mean players have contracted the virus.
Worth pointing out that only the person at Spurs who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last Premier League tests had to isolate along with their family. No other squad or staff members are required to. Lots of people not seen in the pics/video today. Doesn't mean it was them.

It is important that we do not jump to any conclusions. There could be many reasons why players were absent in the game, including the possibility of it being a precaution to avoid injuries. Given the long break that players have had, their workload has to be managed carefully to ensure they do not pick up any injuries.
