Coronavirus pandemic: Chelsea's Mason Mount defies self-isolation protocol to play in public park
The Mirror reported that Mason Mount and Declan Rice, both England internationals, were playing a five-a-side game at the Trent Park Football centre near Barnet.
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount was spotted playing at a football park along with West Ham’s Declan Rice on Sunday, defying the club’s self-isolation protocols which came into place last week.
The Mirror reported that Mount and Rice, both England internationals, were playing a five-a-side game at the Trent Park Football centre near Barnet.
It is understood that Chelsea players have been reminded about the self-isolation protocols and they are expected to resume training only when they are out of isolation on 22-23 March.
West Ham said last week that some club personnel are self-isolating after making direct contact with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta — who also tested positive for the virus — but the players were not self-isolating.
