Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to comments that have come out from Alasdair Gold surrounding Serge Aurier.
After a rather interesting summer to say the least for the Ivorian – with some suggestions that he was set to move back to former side Paris Saint-Germain – ultimately, there was no team that were willing to pay a fee in order to bring him to their club, and both he and Spurs made the decision to terminate his contract early.
Speaking during a video on his YouTube channel, Gold suggested that there might be one or two players who won’t be too happy to see him leave, as he claims that Aurier was “very popular within the club, a lot of players really loved him”.
These comments were relayed to fans by @TheSpursExpress on Twitter for them to react to, and it’s fair to say that there were a number of fans who were rather unhappy with the claims, with some suggesting that if a player with a history of bad behaviour is seen as popular within the dressing room, that may have played a key part in what was holding them back in recent years:
“Much-loved but maybe too much of a clown? Hopefully Ndombele might focus more now”
Are you happy that Aurier has left?
It will probably be a while before we find out if the departure of Aurier will change anything at the club, but if things do turn for the better, then perhaps these fans will feel vindicated in their assessments that he was holding them back.
