Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier is reportedly being investigated by the club after a photo appeared on social media of him getting a haircut during the UK lockdown. It’s the third time the right-back has breached the social-distancing guidelines while the country tries to combat the Coronavirus outbreak.
Tottenham Hotspur Investigating Third Social-Distancing Breach By Serge Aurier
Aurier’s Other Breaches
During lockdown, Aurier has already apologised for posting a video of himself and a friend out jogging together. This was before measures were relaxed to allow people to see one member of another household as long as they maintained a two-metre distance between themselves.
Aurier also apologised and made a donation to the NHS after posting a video on social media of him sitting next to teammate Moussa Sissoko while they were out exercising.
Trouble for Tottenham
Spurs have already had a big issue during this crisis after manager Jose Mourinho apologised for holding a training session with a small group of players at a park in London.
The boss was pictured with Tanguy Ndombele at Hadley Common back in April, while Ryan Sessegnon and Davinson Sanchez were filmed running in the same area.
Time Up for Serge Aurier?
Aurier has struggled for consistency with Spurs since his move from Paris Saint-Germain. The Ivory Coast international has already admitted in the past that he has looked for an exit from Spurs, insisting that he needed “to be happy”.
AC Milan were, according to football.london’s Alasdair Gold, weighing up a £15 million move for him back in January to add extra competition for Andrea Conti and Davide Calabria in that position.
There has been little suggestion, though, that Milan would come back with another offer this summer, and they may now be put off by the effects that the Coronavirus will have on the finances of clubs across the world.
