Tottenham Hotspur right back Serge Aurier isn’t the only fullback who hasn’t had an entirely great 2018/19 campaign and speculation on the summer transfer rumour mill is rife that manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking to move the Frenchman, as well as England international Kieran Trippier on this summer.
Whether or not that is actually our aim given both players have been hit with injuries that has played its own part in some of their poor form or not remains to be seen, but in a recent interview the 26-year-old admitted that although things in football ‘can happen very quickly’ he remained happy at White Hart Lane and was looking forward to bouncing back strongly in the coming 2019/20 season.
Speaking to Canal Football Club as he reflected on his campaign as well as Spurs’ own success in securing the top four slot and reaching the Champions League Final, he explained.
“In football things can happen very quickly. For the moment I do not desire to leave Tottenham. For the moment, I am very happy. This season I have been interrupted by injury more than anything else, but life is like that. I will have to see what will happen. We have done a good season and we are in the Champions’ League final, we are going to enjoy that, see how it goes and next year, my season is not finished, I still have an Africa Cup of Nations too.”
With Premier League minutes hard to come by, he has fared a bit better in the Cup competitions but a successful African Cup of Nations could make the difference possibly?
