Paul Robinson has claimed Serge Aurier made a “huge faux pas” after the Tottenham defender was seen flouting social distancing guidelines last week.
The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, questioned the 27-year-old’s motive for putting the image on Instagram whilst the country is still under strict instruction from the government.
Last Tuesday the Spurs right-back posted a picture of himself with a fresh trim on his personal Instagram account and tagged a barbershop in the post.
The Lilywhites are investigating the incident which appears to suggest the Ivory Coast international broke social distancing rules for the third time since lockdown.
Aurier has already apologised twice after he was seen jogging with a friend and then training with teammate Moussa Sissoko amid the coronavirus pandemic.
When asked by Football Insider for his reaction to last week’s revelation, Robinson said: “I feel social media frustrating anyway.
“That was uncalled for. It is a contradiction to the rules.
“If it is somebody who he lives with then fine but if not it is a huge faux pas on his behalf and something that should not have happened.
“To put it on social media… What did he want people to think? You question why he would put that on.”
Aurier is one of a number of footballers who have been seen ignoring the government’s guidelines to help stop the spread of the virus.
Kyle Walker, Moise Kean and Jack Grealish have also been publicly criticised for their actions over the past two months.
