Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho furiously blasted by London Mayor Sadiq Khan

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho broke the UK’s lockdown policy to hold a one-on-one training session with Tanguy Ndombele on Tuesday and London Mayor Sadiq Khan is furious. doors in June.

While the UK is ordered to stay indoors Mourinho took to a public park to help his midfielder get up to speed.

Although the pair, who do not share the same household, kept to the social distancing guidelines, they came under intense scrutiny for the non-essential meet-up.

Spurs duo Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were also spotted running alongside each other in a separate incident.

And Khan has hit out at Mourinho, insisting he is setting a bad example.

“People, particularly children who may support Spurs or follow football, will watch these images and say ‘if it’s OK for them, why isn’t it OK for me?'” Khan fumed.

“Ask yourself a question. Is what I’m doing really necessary? And the answer is no.

“What you’re doing is inadvertently potentially spreading the virus.”

North London Labour MP Catherine West added: “This is deeply irresponsible.

“Many people look to football for their role models, and to have the Government’s crucial ‘stay at home’ advice so clearly flaunted is a kick in the teeth.”

A Tottenham spokesperson said: “All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors.

“We shall continue to reinforce this message.”

The Premier League season is postponed indefinitely but there are talks ongoing with the government to resume play behind closed doors.
