  1. If you never intended to drop from training. Then what is the reason to not show up? Don’t tell us that you not planned to miss training while during your hollidays. And you forgot the the covid 19 restrictions. You have been there before. And you knew this could cause you some trouble, close to you first day after your holliday. You better explain this to your fans and your loyal and professional co-workers at spurs. Don’t claim your professionalizm into this. Professionals do have some integrety to defend. By showing up for training when they are expected to do it.
