PIERS MORGAN condemned Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho for giving "completely the wrong signal" as he conducted a public training session amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Spurs manager, in a full club tracksuit, was pictured leading a session with three first-team players on Monken Hadley Common in Barnet.
It came just hours after Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were filmed running together with the club having to remind their players of the government guidelines on social distancing.
But Good Morning Britain host Morgan was furious with Mourinho – who he praised for his work in helping deliver essential food to the elderly stuck indoors – for failing to show responsibility and leadership during the crisis.
He said: "I was very surprised about because Mourinho has been very good in delivering food parcels for the media and so on.
"But 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.
"Any young guys who want to be out there kicking a ball around with their mates, they shouldn't be doing it."
Arsenal fan Morgan – who slammed Manchester City defender Kyle Walker's "disgusting hypocrisy" for hosting a sex party before urging fans to stay at home – was joined in discussion by Dr Hilary Jones.
The ITV show's medical expert also did not hold back on ex-Chelsea and United manager Mourinho.
She said:"It sends the wrong signal and people need to be constantly reminded of what the guidelines are: one form of exercise for a short period of time, not sitting on the grass sunbathing – that doesn't have any benefit, whereas exercise does.
"There are multiple reasons why we give these guidelines and if people follow them we will save lives and protect the NHS."
