Mason Mount apologized to manager Frank Lampard after playing football in public with Declan Rice while he was said to be in isolation due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Chelsea announced that their players would follow government guidelines and isolate themselves after Mount’s teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for the condition last week.
Midfielder Mount, however, saw a kick-over with West Ham star and his best mate Declan Rice on Sunday at the Trent Park Football Center, near Barnet.

Most of Chelsea’s team and staff from the first team that had been in contact with Hudson-Odoi were ordered to stay away from their Cobham training area for 14 days, making a face-to-face meeting with Lampard impossible.
As a result, manager and player spoke over the phone and Mount apologized for being reminded of his responsibilities by the club. That warning was also given to all Chelsea players.
Mount does not have a coronavirus, nor has he shown any symptoms of the virus, although he held up his hands after venturing after the club told him to stay at home.
Rice was not under the same restrictions as his English teammate Mount from his club West Ham.
