Tottenham Hotspur fans angered by Serge Aurier comments

Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier has not been picked by Mauricio Pochettino at all this season.

Tottenham Hotspur fans are not happy with Serge Aurier’s latest comments, where he suggested that there was no competition at right-back.

Aurier has not played at all at Tottenham this season, after being heavily linked with a move away.

The Ivorian international has now come out and addressed those rumours, suggesting that he was kept at Tottenham as they had no cover.

“There isn’t any (competition). I’d simply decided to leave, In the end, I wasn’t able. It proves the club trust me on a lot of points,” he said to Bal Des Productions.

 

The comments have not gone down well with fans of Pochettino’s side, as they could be construed as slightly disrespectful.

Tottenham, of course, do have the likes of Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters competing with Aurier for a slot at right-back.

And Spurs fans have suggested that the former PSG man is out of order with his comments.

Despite Aurier’s words to the press, he could actually have a chance at making his first appearance of the season tomorrow.

Tottenham’s options at right-back do look desperately short at the moment, with Kyle Walker-Peters only just coming back from injury, and it could be that Pochettino turns to Aurier against Crystal Palace.
