Jose Mourinho could be warned by the police for his decision to train outdoors with Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele on Tuesday, according to a report in the Sun.

Images emerged on social media of the Spurs boss overseeing a training session with Ndombele at Hadley Common.

The Portuguese coach has received criticism (Good Morning Britain via the Express) for breaking the UK government’s rules which state that outdoor exercise can only be undertaken with people from the same household.

The Athletic have revealed that the intention of Mourinho’s session with Ndombele wasn’t primarily fitness based but to make the Frenchman feel like an important part of the team.

Mourinho has since apologised for his actions (Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick) but the Sun now reports that the Police are using new laws to crack down on those breaking lockdown.

It is claimed that they may soon speak to the Spurs boss about his public training session.

This story has been blown out of proportion but Jose must have known that this was bound to happen once he decided to train outdoors. It was not the brightest of decisions from the Spurs boss, particularly at a time when the club was already facing severe criticism over their decision to furlough non-playing staff and reduce their pay.
