I do not feel optimistic about Serge Aurier’s chances of featuring for Spurs at all this season after his comments today.
Aurier was asked whether he was scared about spending the season on the bench at Tottenham due to the competition for spots.
Kyle Walker-Peters started the first three matches of the season at right-back for the Lilywhites, while Davinson Sanchez filled in against Arsenal.
Juan Foyth, Eric Dier, and Moussa Sissoko also all have experience in playing at right-back if Pochettino calls upon them this season.
This comes after the first-choice right-back over the last few years, Kieran Trippier, was sold to Atletico Madrid back in the summer transfer window.
However, Aurier arrogantly insists that there is no competition for the right-back spot at Spurs, implying that the only reason he isn’t starting is due to the fact that he decided to leave the club in the summer.
An exit never materialised and Aurier says he must now focus on the season ahead with Tottenham.
He said (Bal des Productions): “What competition? There isn’t any. I’d simply decided to leave [this summer], which was normal for me. Many things were taken into consideration. In the end, I wasn’t able to leave. It proves the club trust me on a lot of points, and we’ll see.
“We’ll see how the season pans out, but for now, I’m here, the transfer window is shut and we need to concentrate on the campaign ahead.”
