Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly investigating Serge Aurier for a breach of social distancing rules after the defender posted a picture of himself with his barber on social media.

Ivory Coast international Aurier, 27, put a photo of his hairdo on Instagram.

People from different households have been barred from socialising due to the coronavirus pandemic since the British government imposed lockdown measures on March 23, closing businesses including hairdressers.

“We are investigating the circumstances and will deal with the incident appropriately,” the BBC reported Spurs as saying in a statement.

Aurier, who had previously apologised after posting videos of himself and teammate Moussa Sissoko doing shuttle runs together during the lockdown, defended his behaviour.

“My hairdresser is negative and me too, so stop talking in a vacuum,” he wrote.

“Put on masks and gloves when you come to take pictures at the training centre - it's part of the rules too.”

Serge Aurier facing $260,000 fine

Aurier is reportedly facing a fine of £140,000 ($260,000) from the club after he already violated social distancing guidelines twice.

“It is Aurier’s third transgression of the lockdown,” The Guardian reported on Thursday.

”On the first occasion he was pictured on Instagram jogging alongside a friend and then he uploaded another video to his Instagram story of him training alongside his Spurs teammate.”

Needless to say, fans are fuming about Aurier’s behaviour.

His career has been full of troublesome behaviour.

The former PSG defender was convicted of assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub in 2016, suspended three Champions League matches for calling a referee a “dirty son of a b*tch” on Twitter, and has endured other incidents.

Tottenham began non-contact, socially distanced training on Wednesday.

As long as Aurier continues to test negative for coronavirus he’ll be allowed to train with the team.
