Tottenham were reportedly the only Premier League club in London still training earlier this week after the footballing calendar came to a standstill following the coronavirus outbreak.

It was suggested that Spurs were waiting for a decision from the FA or Premier League regarding a future course of action.

Football.London has now revealed that Jose Mourinho has made the decision to suspend training after the Premier League confirmed on Thursday that the competition will not resume before April 30.

On the back of the decision by the FA and the Premier League, it is revealed that Tottenham have handed each player an individualised training programme and have asked them to maintain their fitness at home.

It is said that injured players, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Steven Bergwijn are the only ones who have been permitted to come to Hotspur Way when required for help with their rehabilitation. Other players have been asked to stay away from the training complex.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Jose probably wanted to use the time to get some of his ideas across as he’s hardly had anytime to work with the players on the training ground since he arrived. However, with football not resuming at least until April 30, the right decision was made to call off training. Given the likelihood that the players aren’t going to get a normal summer break this year, it makes sense to allow them to rest and recover until footballing action resumes.
