Jose Mourinho wished Dele Alli a very personal happy birthday – after spotting his Spurs star across the road while out for a stroll.
The Tottenham boss was sticking to guidelines and keeping his distance when a topless Dele, who turns 24 today, stepped outside his house in North London.
Mourinho, 57, risked a telling off from police earlier this week after he appeared to flout coronavirus guidelines by taking a training session in a London park.
Pictures appeared to show the Spurs boss doing drills with club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele on Hadley Common.
Youngster Ryan Sessegnon and central defender Davinson Sanchez were also spotted jogging side by side.
Mourinho has since apologised for his actions and looked to have learned his lesson while keeping a safe distance away from Alli – who himself went on a two-night binge with the season suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak – when out and about today.
Our photos show Mourinho – who wore a coronavirus mask for his sunshine stroll – keeping the other side of the road while talking to his player.
The Special One, who was out at the same time as goalkeeper coach Nuno Santos and Spurs tactical analyst Ricardo Formosinho, even stopped to take a photo on his allotted period of exercise during the global pandemic.
Dele – who lives about five minutes away from Mourinho – took to Instagram after his chance encounter with his boss to show how he is coping with being stuck indoors.
The England midfielder posted a brilliant photo of himself playing Twister on his own, as well as flipping a burger, with the caption: “Isolation birthday #stayhome.”
However, it appears Dele was not totally by himself.
Girlfriend Ruby Mae posted a short clip to her Instagram of Dele playing the game – and slammed him for his skills, shouting: “You’re s***!”
