Tottenham to allow players limited access to training complex

Tottenham Hotspur are to make a number of its training pitches available to members of its first team for limited solo sessions from tomorrow.

The club say players will travel independently and will be assigned one pitch on which to train alone.

It's after the club was forced to remind several players, and manager Jose Mourinho, of their responsibilities regarding social distancing.

Earlier this month, Mourinho was pictured conducting a one-on-one session with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele in a public park.

On the same day, Serge Aurier - also wearing official club training kit - was seen running with another individual in the same park.

Last week, Aurier and Moussa Sissoko were forced to apologise having again been found disregarding the rules on social distancing by posting videos of themselves jogging in public together on Instagram.

Football in England has been suspended since March 13.

The British government want to get the Premier League back up and running "as soon as possible".

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary Oliver Dowden told the Commons he'd been having discussions with the top flight with a view to restarting the season.

Tottenham's training statement reads:

From tomorrow (28 April), the Club shall be making a limited number of pitches available at our Training Centre for members of our first team squad to use for individual running sessions on a strict rotational basis.

No more than one player per pitch will be permitted at any one time to undertake on-pitch exercise, with only a restricted number of the squad coming to the Training Centre each day.

Each player will travel independently and arrive at the facilities already dressed in training wear before returning home immediately after they have concluded their session.

All activity will be conducted in line with government guidelines with social distancing maintained at all times and there will be no access permitted to any building on site.
