Piers Morgan has hit out at Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho for appearing to break government rules by leading an alternative training session.

Mourinho and three of his players were pictured in close proximity to each other on Monday, with the Portuguese boss putting Davinson Sanchez, Ryan Sessegnon and Tanguy Ndombele through their paces.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain Morgan expressed his confusion with Mourinho’s decision to flout the rules.

“On a less positive note, we have found more idiots, I’m afraid,” Morgan told his co-host Susanna Reid. “What are you thinking Jose? What are you thinking players?

“Tottenham, at the moment, quite rightly, are getting vilified as a club for the decision taken by their billionaire owner Joe Lewis and their chief executive Daniel Levy to furlough staff when they’ve got gazillions to spend on players.

“And now we see the players and the manager having an unofficial training session, apparently not sanctioned by the club. I was very surprised about this because Mourinho has been very good in delivering food parcels for the media and so on.

“But for Jose Mourinho, the Tottenham manager, to be having an unofficial training session with players, in which they’re clearly ignoring the social distancing rules. It sends out completely the wrong signal.”
