Many Tottenham supporters have been discussing Alasdair Gold’s latest tweet about Serge Aurier that emerged on social media.
In his tweet, Gold referenced Aurier’s latest comments to L’Equipe, as the right-back claimed that he has reached the ‘end of a cycle’ at Tottenham and it’s time for him to move on. He revealed that Spurs’ board and his agents have decided about the same and he also made his admiration clear for Paris Saint-Germain.
The defender also stated that his liking for PSG doesn’t mean that he’s closing the door on anyone, but Les Parisiens are his first choice.
Should Aurier leave in the summer?
Gold’s tweet talked about these comments, clarifying Aurier’s stance about departing the club. The journalist’s tweet drew the attention of many Spurs fans, who made their views very clear about the right-back.
What did Spurs fans make of Gold’s tweet about Aurier?
“This is fantastic news. Let Serge know if he needs a lift I’m offering him one free of charge.”
“If I’m honest he’s very average. Offers nothing going forward, and his defending is poor, positional sense woeful, he’s lazy and rash. Player is a liability so best to offload. How many good games has he really had?“
“Jog him on… Hello Max Aarons.”
“Best news this year”
“Lovely Sunday evening news, does he need a lift to the airport?“
“Thank god, you godawful footballer.”
“A terrible fit since day 1. A full-back that can’t defend. Ok going forward but his rashness and poor judgement has cost us more points than his occasional decent delivery into the box has earned us. A penalty waiting to happen. Thanks & goodbye.”
“That cycle ended 6 months after he got there. Absolutely useless.”
These Spurs fans clearly want Aurier gone from the club and some feel that he’s not good enough for the team.
In the 2020/21 campaign, Aurier was dribbled past 1.3 times per game in the Premier League. That was the highest tally out of defenders in the team (as per WhoScored).
And while he did contribute to Spurs’ attack (with two goals and three assists), he perhaps isn’t good enough defensively. He’s now 28, and by selling him, Spurs could earn a fee and potentially replace him with someone who’s a better defender.
