Mason Mount apologizes to Lampard after breaking self-isolation orders

Mason Mount has issued an apology to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard after playing football publicly with Declan Rice despite being ordered by Chelsea to be in self-isolation due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The 21-year-old England international was spotted participating in a kick-around with the West Ham midfielder in Barnet on Sunday. It can be recalled that Chelsea’s first-team squad and coaching staff were ordered to self-isolate after Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for the virus last week.

According to MailOnline, Mount has personally apologized to Frank Lampard through a phone call and has also been reminded of his responsibilities alongside the rest of the squad. However, Rice hasn’t been placed on any restrictions by West Ham and there is no indication that he was aware of Chelsea’s order for Mount to be in self-isolation.


Meanwhile, West Ham boss David Moyes has spent seven days in self-isolation after coming into contact with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who also tested positive for the virus. However, Moyes showed no symptoms of coronavirus and has come out of isolation.
