Serge Aurier insists he is happy at Tottenham despite failed summer exit


Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier insists he is happy at the clubdespite being prevented by leaving this summer.
The Ivory Coast international said last week he’d have liked to have moved from Spurs during the transfer window, but instead made his initial appearance of the year and provided two assists in the win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Aurier, who last played at the Premier League in February, has had a very tough time at the club following his 2017 movement and stated he wished to leave due to some”personal situation”.
The 26-year-old is looking into the future and insists that there is no rift with boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Asked if he wanted to depart, Aurier said:”Yes, but that was the case before the transfer window closed, the transfer window is currently closed, today I am calm and happy to remain.
“I speak with everybody, I really don’t want to leave.
“I had something in my head, but that I didn’t need to leave to the gaffer or the chairman (Daniel Levy).
“It was my personal circumstance and today it is OK, everyone wants to give me another chance and today I’m delighted to remain and happy to play along with joyful for the victory.
“We need to provide the best for this year and for your decorations.
“Nothing has changed in my life. I stay and now I want to show and give my best to the supporters, for the team, for everybody.”
