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.
Oh man, a little dissent creeping in. Serge is a solid RB but he has a history if saying and doing things that just don’t sit well. This is why we should have signed Ricardo Pereira when we had the chance.— Aaron Pitters ✍️️ (@aaronpitters) September 12, 2019
Thats a lot of big talk from someone who will be training with boot boys for 4 months…— David Flanagan (@THEBombayDave) September 12, 2019
Why on earth did we ever sign him.— darren brice (@darrenrice76) September 12, 2019
Can everyone inside the club just stop talking, stop it.— portobellodisco (@steve_martin75) September 12, 2019
Great. Leave. Please.— Mike Panayiotou (@mikiepan) September 13, 2019
Just get out of this club.— Eric (@PrimeTobyV2) September 12, 2019
We may not see him in a spurs shirt again— Alex Benson-Wilson (@alexbw11) September 12, 2019
You can’t go saying stuff like that about teammates
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.
