Fulham investigate as Terence Kongolo ‘breaks lockdown rules’ at surprise party

Fulham are reportedly investigating after Terence Kongolo was allegedly given a surprise birthday party while the country is in lockdown.

Mixing of households indoors is currently not permitted amid the coronavirus pandemic, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson set to unveil his roadmap out of lockdown on February 22.

Kongolo had been on the bench for Fulham as they won 2-0 at Everton on Sunday evening, the same day he celebrated his 27th birthday.

The Daily Mail have footage showing Kongolo greeted at home by seven cheering friends in the early hours of Monday morning.

The video filmed from inside shows Kongolo wearing his Fulham tracksuit, a face covering and holding a travel bag.

The Daily Mail add that a group of at least seven people are waiting with loud music blaring with a caption of “surprise” as Kongolo walks in.

Fulham are reportedly aware of the video and are believed to be looking into the circumstances surrounding it.

The Athletic add that former Huddersfield and Monaco ace Kongolo told the club that he did not know that a party had been planned.

Kongolo was back with Fulham in time for Wednesday’s clash at Burnley, though was again an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw.

He has made just one first-team appearance since his permanent signing in October having struggled with injury.

The Dutch star had been loaned to Fulham from Huddersfield last January before the Cottagers paid around £4m for his permanent services.
