06 Oct Serge Aurier insists he is happy at Tottenham despite failed summer exit
Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier insists he’s happy at the clubdespite being prevented by departing.
The Ivory Coast stated he’d have liked to have moved during the transfer window from Spurs, but rather made his first appearance of the season and two assists in the win.
Aurier, who last played at the Premier League in February, has had a very difficult time in the club following his 2017 move and stated he wanted to leave because of a”personal situation”.
The 26-year-old is looking to the future and insists there is no rift with boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Asked if he wanted to depart, Aurier said:”Yes, but that has been the case before the transfer window closed, the transfer window is now shut, I am calm and pleased to stay.
“I talk with everybody, I don’t wish to leave.
“I had something in my own head, but I did not wish to leave for the gaffer or the chairman (Daniel Levy).
“It was my personal circumstance and now it is OK, everybody wishes to give me another opportunity and today I am delighted to stay and happy to play along with happy for the success.
“We need to give the very best for this year and for the trophies.
“Nothing has changed in my personal life. I live and now I would like to prove and offer my best to the supporters, for the team, for everybody.”
