The post stated that Spurs have made the decision to end training sessions with their first team until next month following the news that the Premier League have postponed all fixtures until at least the end of April (via The Independent). This is due to a pandemic outbreak that has spread across the footballing world as well as the whole country in general, so England’s top flight have decided to take this precaution in order to try and stop illnesses from spreading.
As a result, the Tottenham squad have been asked to keep up their fitness in the comfort of their own homes, with injured players being allowed to go into Hotspur Way only for rehabilitation and so will not be allowed to train.
This news follows reports from earlier this week that the north London side were the only Premier League team in the capital training as they were being filmed at their centres for an Amazon documentary that was due to be released in the summer, but may have to be delayed in line with the return of the season (via Evening Standard).
Spurs have now decided to take necessary action and cancel all of their training sessions to follow advice from both the government and the football community.
Players will still be expected to train in self-isolation so that they can be ready for when the campaign does resume, although it is unclear just how soon that will be.
