Serge Aurier: Tottenham investigate after player seems to break social-distancing rules

Serge Aurier

Tottenham Hotspur are investigating after defender Serge Aurier appeared to breach coronavirus social-distancing rules for the third time.

The Ivory Coast right-back, 27, posted a photo on social media of himself and a barber after getting a haircut.

Hairdressers will open from 4 July at the earliest in England, and people cannot have visitors at their homes.

Spurs said they were "investigating the circumstances and will deal with the incident appropriately".

In a social media post on Wednesday, Aurier hinted that there were double standards behind criticism he has received.

"My hairdresser is negative and me too, so stop talking in a vacuum," he wrote.

"Put on masks and gloves when you come to take pictures at the training centre - it's part of the rules too."

Aurier was among the Tottenham players who returned to training on Tuesday.

He previously apologised for posting a video of himself and a friend jogging during lockdown.

Aurier and team-mate Moussa Sissoko also made a donation to the NHS and apologised after being filmed training together.
