The Premier League has been suspended for the foreseeable future and the country remains in a nation-wide lockdown in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Like the general public, the Tottenham players have been confined to their own houses where they are supposed to be maintaining their training, both on their own and in virtual sessions with the Spurs staff.

However, a few of the players made the headlines last week for all the wrong reasons as they failed to adhere to social distancing and government guidelines (Mirror).

Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were seen jogging side-by-side, far closer than the two-metre regulations.

Not only this, but Jose Mourinho himself took an outdoor training session with Tanguy Ndombele, despite the fact that exercise is only to be conducted with members of the same household.

In her column for The Sun, West Ham United vice-chairwoman, Karren Brady, has now aimed a sly dig at the Tottenham players for breaking lockdown rules.

She wrote: ‘And, as worried as I am about the financial impact, I am more worried about the health and wellbeing of my players.

‘All PL football players are in lockdown at home (except some of the Spurs ones!) and there is only so much you can do to keep fit on a treadmill.

‘Some of my players are in flats, have no access to a garden and are literally, and I mean literally… climbing the walls!’
