Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has accepted he was in the wrong for holding a one-on-one training session with Tanguy Ndombele in a public park.
Mourinho was pictured on social media flaunting government rules by meeting up with the midfielder on Hadley Common on Tuesday, even though they kept to social distancing guidelines.
Fellow Spurs players Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were spotted running side by side in a separate session, while Serge Aurier filmed himself on Instagram running alongside a friend.
Mourinho has held his hands up and admitted that he was in the wrong.
“I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household,” he said.

While Mourinho accepts he was in the wrong by holding the session, it was an isolated incident, with group sessions taking place online.
