had violated coronavirus protocols by attending a Christmas party.

Manuel Lanzini

in attendance, was released on social media.

The party violated the Covid-19 rules imposed by the UK government for disregarding social distance guidelines.

He was particularly disappointed with Reguilion as he gave him cooked pig to spend his first Christmas in England well.

"I gave him an amazing gift, a Portuguese piglet, which is amazing for Portuguese and Spanish,

" Mourinho said after Tottenham's 3-0 defeat of

 Leeds United 

on Saturday.

"I gave him it because I was told he was going to spend Christmas on his own. I had this thought about him. He was not alone, as you can see.

"We as a club feel disappointed. We give the players all the education, we give the players all the conditions and, of course, we are not happy. It was a negative surprise for us."

He was asked if he is angry with the behavior of his players, he added:

"I prefer to say disappointed.

"We know what we are internally. We don't need to open the door to you and let you know what is going on internally, what are going to be the consequences, how we approached that negative surprise. I feel disappointed, just that."

Lanzini regretted the mistake he made on Christmas Day and accepted all responsibilities.

"I want to apologize for a bad mistake I made over Christmas and I take full responsibility for my actions

," the midfielder wrote.

"I know people have made difficult sacrifices to stay safe and I should be setting a better example
