TOTTENHAM began welcoming players back to training on Tuesday ahead of football’s return from the coronavirus pandemic.
Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks were all seen entering the Enfield base as part of Spurs’ efforts to prepare for the Premier League’s resumption.
No date has been set for any matches yet but the North London side joined neighbours Arsenal in slowly bringing players back to work.
Efforts to maintain social distancing are being made with stars turning up individually and ready to train before returning home immediately after their session.
Tottenham confirmed: “The club shall be making a limited number of pitches available at our Training Centre for members of our first team squad to use for individual running sessions on a strict rotational basis.
“No more than one player per pitch will be permitted at any one time to undertake on-pitch exercise, with only a restricted number of the squad coming to the Training Centre each day.
“Each player will travel independently and arrive at the facilities already dressed in training wear before returning home immediately after they have concluded their session.
“All activity will be conducted in line with Government guidelines with social distancing maintained at all times and there will be no access permitted to any building on site.”
West Ham and Brighton also opened up their facilities this week to allow players to train alone.
Recent reports suggested Uefa are pressing the Premier League to come up with a plan by the end of May for completing the season.
The next league meeting is set for Friday with a restart date of June 8 being floated, to enable the 2019/20 season to end behind closed doors.
The Government has also urged game bosses to construct a plausible timetable ahead of lockdown measures being eased in the coming weeks and months.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden stated: “I personally have been in talks with the Premier League with a view to getting football up and running as soon as possible in order to support the whole football community.”
However players will require a pre-season period of training before being fit enough to partake in competitive action.

Some teams haven’t played since March 7 and a heavily congested period of fixtures is expected to see out the remaining nine or ten-game calendar.
It is hoped squads can increase their training regime by the middle of May, particularly after a handful of players fell foul of lockdown guidelines by working out together in public.
Similarly, leagues across Europe are putting their restart plans in place with Italy’s Serie A commencing training on May 18 before a June 2 kick-off, and Germany’s Bundesliga awaiting government approval to play matches from May 9.
