Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of clinching European football next season were dealt one humongous blow this evening as they capitulated in south Yorkshire once again.
And supporters were left absolutely reeling by the performance from Serge Aurier.
Spurs were beaten 3-1 by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, a victory which saw the Blades leapfrog them into seventh place.
The home side bagged against the run of the play as Sander Berge rounded off a fine counter-attack with a cool slotted finish past Hugo Lloris.
Do Spurs need to upgrade the RB position this summer?
A moment of controversy followed as Harry Kane levelled within seconds, but it was chalked off by a dubious VAR call before Jose Mourinho’s men collapsed at the hands of United.
Lys Mousset and Oli McBurnie finished things off, though not before a consolation effort from the Spurs talisman.
Aurier put in a shocking display according to the watching-from-home Lilywhites fanbase. He was lambasted for being a “donkey” as well as a “clown” whilst one fan went as far as calling him a “liability”.
Per SofaScore, in his 71 minutes on the pitch, the 27-year-old failed to provide an accurate cross from six attempts, lost possession 13 times and recorded three tackles.
Here’s how the Spurs faithful reacted to the £23m defender’s display…

My @walthamabbeyfc @Footballmanager save brings me much more joy than watching @SpursOfficial. Watching Lamela run around in circles all game is painful. Defenders that don't know how to defend. Aurier is nicking a living. Someone has run out of ideas, and his name is Jose!

Sissoko and Aurier are absolute clowns.

Moura sissoko aurier are diabolical imo

Aurier is robbing a living as a footballer
— Ross Kelly (@rkellyplumber) July 2, 2020
At what point do we just release Aurier? Find it kinda funny how much people on here used to praise him, ‘player of the season’ stuff etc.
Give me Kyle Naughton, Zeki Fryers, Pascal Chimnonda and Bongani Khumalo over this fraud.
