Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier might be fit enough to take the field again during the African Cup of Nations which is currently being held in Egypt according to his coach.
The full-back said that he might not play any further part in the tournament after sustaining a muscular injury during Ivory Coast’s 1-0 loss to Morocco last Friday.
Aurier, who is the captain of his country, had to be replaced in the 70th minute and admitted to Sport 24 after that game that it felt like a tear and that he was waiting for the test to confirm the extent of the injury.
The 26-year-old missed 24 games for Spurs last season due to injuries and it was feared that he might once again miss the start of pre-season if the injury was serious.
However, Aurier’s coach Ibrahim Kamara has now delivered a positive update by saying that the right-back could be out of action for just one game.
According to Football. London, Kamara said, “Serge Aurier is injured. For the next match, he will not be there.
“The doctors are treating him. We hope to have him back for the next matches.”

This is good news as it suggests that the full back will be ready for the start of pre-season. We believe next season will be a huge one for Aurier, and that he has the talent to step up and make the right-back slot at Tottenham his own for several seasons to come – if he can iron out his simple errors.
