Jose Mourinho was seen wishing Spurs midfielder, Dele Alli, a happy birthday yesterday after spotting him across the road while out for a stroll, according to the Sun.

Alli, who turned 24 on Saturday, and Mourinho reportedly kept their distance as they exchanged pleasantries from across the street.

This comes after Mourinho came under criticism for ignoring the government’s rules on exercising and social distancing while training outdoors with Tanguy Ndombele last week.

Mourinho issued an apology for his public training session earlier in the week and it looks like he has certainly learned from his mistake.

The Sun revealed that the Special One was out at the same time as goalkeeper coach, Nuno Santos, and Spurs tactical analyst, Ricardo Formosinho, on Saturday when they spotted Dele.

Mourinho made a grave miscalculation by deciding to train outdoors with Ndombele as he must have known the press was going to have a field day if the pair had been spotted. It is clear from his actions that the Spurs boss is chomping at the bits to work with the players and get them physically and tactically ready in case the season resumes.
