Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho will be tearing his hair out after Serge Aurier appeared to breach lockdown rules again, according to Michael Brown.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Spurs midfielder insists the Portuguese boss already has enough on his plate as the club look to emerge from the shutdown of football in England.

In a statement given to the BBC, Spurs says they are “investigating the circumstances and will deal with the incident appropriately” after the 27-year-old posted a photo of him getting a haircut despite the social distancing guidelines.

Aurier has already come under fire for his actions during the Coronavirus pandemic, having posted photos of him running with a friend as well as Moussa Sissoko on separate occasions.

With Spurs looking to make sure that players are safe on their return to training, Brown believes Mourinho will have been furious with his defender.

Brown told Football Insider: “I think there’s enough on everybody’s plates at the moments and for Jose Mourinho, he just doesn’t need to be addressing this.

“You can imagine the actual organisation to get everybody back in, in a safe way, in a safe environment, it’s just another thing they don’t need – a player stepping out of line and disrupt this.

“He’ll (Mourinho) be one of those saying: ‘Really? I don’t need this, we don’t need this on our plate’ and I’m sure he’ll be having a word with him.” 

The Tottenham players returned to training on Tuesday, with guidelines stating that sessions must be carried out in small groups and with no contact or tackling.

Aurier has been a mainstay for Spurs this season, with 33 appearances across all competitions under his belt.
