The Premier League have now taken a big step towards restarting the league next month as all clubs, including Spurs, have been given the green light to enter phase two of training following consultation with clubs, players, managers, the PFA, and LMA (Sky Sports).

Under phase one, players were only allowed to train in groups of four or five and had to maintain strict social distancing protocols.

Tottenham confirmed today that, with permission to begin phase two, the squad can now start training together as a group.

It has also been revealed that players will be allowed to engage in tackling while minimising any unnecessary close contact with one another.

The vote to begin contact training was said to be unanimous among the shareholders of all twenty Premier League clubs.

However, strict protocols are still in place at Hotspur Way and players will continue to be tested for COVID-19 twice a week as the Premier League aims to make training grounds the safest environments possible.

This is a major development as it would finally allow managers to work with their teams properly in order to get them ready for a potential restart next month. Having not had a pre-season with the squad, Jose Mourinho will be eager to work with the squad on various patterns of play.
