Mason Mount leaves self-isolation for a kickabout with Declan Rice

Mason Mount is in trouble after being seen having a kickabout with Declan Rice on Sunday.

The Chelsea midfielder is supposed to be in self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic after teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for the virus last week.

In a statement on Friday morning, the club revealed that all of their players and staff would be self-isolating, adhering to government guidelines.

But after being seen down his local five-a-side pitch at Trent Park Football centre, near Barnet, Chelsea are said to be ‘furious’ at Mount.

According to the Mirror, he’s facing a fine from the club with Frank Lampard likely to be angry at his behaviour.

Meanwhile, West Ham aren’t currently in lockdown and, therefore, Rice isn’t thought to have done anything wrong.

That didn’t stop the Daily Sport going with the headline ‘Idiots’. 

A witness said: “I took my 14-year-old son there for a training session.

“We noticed a car that looked a bit ridiculous and wondered who was in it.

“Then another came along with three or four people inside. My son recognised Mason Mount as the driver.

“They played a kickabout of five or six-a-side. Declan Rice was playing too.

“They were wearing snoods but it wasn’t obvious whether they were using them to protect other people or so they wouldn’t be noticed.

“When I went back to the car I thought, ‘Hang on.’

“We’ve got someone out in public who is a team-mate of Callum Hudson-Odoi, who actually has coronavirus. It looked like none of them were taking the situation very seriously.

“I would imagine their clubs would be horrified.”

The Premier League has been suspended until April but it’s thought there is very little chance of top-flight football returning in just a few weeks’ time.

Chelsea are said to have reminded Mount of his responsibilities but he could well be getting punished further.
