“I’m really happy to have him here. I spoke a lot to him before his arrival and I reassured him. I think he made the right decision. He had other opportunities, but I think it’s the best choice for him and for his career.
“I told him it’s an ambitious club, a beautiful club with a really good team. I think he was looking for somewhere where he could have fun again and he has come to the right team.
“It’s a spirited group here, which is not afraid of welcoming new players and in that regard I know what I’m talking about.
Serge Aurier said, talking to the the Tottenham & Wood Green Independent.
The boy Aurier may have a dog in this particular race, in a manner of speaking.
Spurs fans have almost been as slow as Mauricio Pochettino himself to wise up to the change the our back four has undergone this season.
The departure of Bonzo and the seemingly endless question marks bouncing off of Danny Rose’s head has rendered Spurs Flying Wing-backs™ a thing of the past.
A dripping nag from fans has been about the lack of pace from anyone that isn’t Rose… this, despite the fact that none of the alternative left backs and right backs were ever been pitched as speed-merchants.
The arrival of Moura could allow Serge Aurier to simply go about his business, playing in a position he filled with no little aplomb at PSG.
Have Spurs made an inspired signing?
They’ll let us know.
