Tottenham’s Aurier takes to social media after being accused of breaking lockdown again

Tottenham defender Serge Aurier has, on Wednesday, taken to social media after being accused of breaking lockdown restrictions once again.

Aurier & Sissoko apologise for breaking lockdown

The Ivorian has already been in hot water of late, after breaching lockdown rules last month.

The UK, which has recorded over 250,000 coronavirus cases, has been under some form of lockdown since the back end of March.

The Premier League has also been suspended since the 13th of March.

However, Tottenham pair Moussa Sissoko and Aurier nevertheless broke lockdown back in April.

Aurier recorded himself training alongside his Lilywhites teammate, forcing Spurs to issue a statement reminding their players to follow Government guidelines on social distancing.

The two Tottenham stars would also release a joint statement, apologising for their actions, and promising to make a financial donation to show their support for the NHS:

“We recognise that as professional footballers we have a responsibility to be role models, particularly during this uncertain period that everyone around the world is facing.

“We wish to apologise for not setting the right example here. We must all respect the government advice to minimise the number of lives lost during this pandemic. We cannot thank NHS staff enough for their tireless work at this time and we shall both be making a financial donation to show our support for their efforts.”

Aurier responds to lockdown breach claims

However, Aurier has today once again found himself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

As per Sky Sports News, Tottenham are investigating their Ivorian full-back, after he seemingly broke social distancing rules for a third time by getting a haircut during lockdown.

The 27-year-old posted the picture showcased below on his official Instagram account, in which he appeared to be showing off his new haircut.

Tottenham subsequently confirmed in a statement that they are investigating the situation:

“We are investigating the circumstances and will deal with the incident appropriately.”

But, as mentioned above, Aurier has since moved to provide a response of his own regarding the Instagram picture in question.

Posting on his Instagram story, Aurier wrote the following:

‘my hairdresser is negative and me too so stop talking in a vacuum and put on masks and gloves when you come to take pictures at the training center its part of the rules too’
