Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was sent a cheeky warning by Southampton after sharing a snap with forward Danny Ings.
The midfielder is back on England duty after recovering from a knock picked up in the Premier League champions’ win over Chelsea last month.
And it has seen him reunite with Ings, who spent three tough seasons at Anfield before making the move to Southampton in 2018.
While his time with Liverpool was strewn with injury, the Englishman has scored 36 goals in 71 games on the south coast to earn international call-ups this year.
It has seen the forward train with Henderson for the Three Lions ahead of their international friendly against Wales.
When an image of the pair laughing together, Liverpool’s captain shared it on Twitter with the caption: “Missed this man.”
But Southampton were quick to respond with a cheeky post of their own saying they do not want the pair having a reunion at Anfield.
“Don’t get any funny ideas, Jordan,” the reply read.
While Henderson and Ings were working hard in England training, players Tammy Abraham, Jadon Sancho and Ben Chilwell were thrown the rulebook after attending the Chelsea forward’s 23rd birthday, contravening Government rules stating no more than six people can mix together at any one time.
And it has seen Gareth Southgatefire a warning to his players that his patience is being tested.
The manager said: ”When these incidents happen, it takes a lot of time and energy away from the team. We can't afford that.
"When you're going into major tournaments with these sorts of incidents, they can derail you. I've seen that in the past.

"You (the newspapers) are always going to write openly and honestly about performances – and if that's not been good then no-one enjoys reading that about themselves.
"But we have to accept that. We give opportunities to the areas and types of stories that can grow legs and if we have the types of things like we've had in the last couple of camps then we give opportunity for those sorts of stories to be written.
"So we have to try and give ourselves the best chance to perform. The key is to keep improving the team and part of that is educating the players for them to learn quickly, focusing on what our team culture needs to be and what we are prepared to stand for."
