Tottenham set to investigate Aurier for breaking lockdown rules to get haircut

Tottenham are investigating Serge Aurier for breaching lockdown rules after the defender posted pictures showing him receiving a hair cut.

The 27-year-old and Sissoko apologised and made a donation to the National Health Service.

"You should stay alert when you leave home: washing your hands regularly, maintaining social distancing, and ensuring you do not gather in groups of more than two, except with members of your household or for other specific exceptions set out in law".

Aurier did not specify exactly when he received the haircut, but posted the image nonetheless.

Ivory Coast global Aurier, who has already been forced to apologise and make a donation to the NHS for previous lockdown breaches, posted images of himself on Instagram suggesting he had received a haircut at his home on Tuesday night - less than 24 hours before Spurs players were due to return for restricted group training.

Aurier shared a video of himself wearing a mask while training with fellow Tottenham man Sissoko on social media before swiftly deleting it.

Aurier posted a message on his Instagram story saying his barber tested negative for the coronavirus.

Aurier also tagged the account of Justin Carr - a hairdresser who counts Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Manchester City's Kyle Walker among his clients - but it is unclear when the pictures were taken.

"It is Aurier's third transgression of the lockdown", The Guardian reported on Thursday.

Next week is a key week for the Premier League "Project Restart" plan as clubs are due to meet on Tuesday (May 26) to discuss a return to full contact training, then again on Thursday (May 28) to vote on whether or not to restart the season.

As long as Aurier continues to test negative for coronavirus he'll be allowed to train with the team.
