Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has challenged Serge Aurier to create the place his own following his impressive display in the win over Crystal Palace.
The Ivory Coast international has been playing his first match of the season – and creating his first Premier League start since February – and provided two assists in Spurs’ largest triumph at their new stadium.
Aurier, that has recovered from a hand injury has said he wished to depart the club on the summer but seems to have a chance – providing he is constant.
“I believe he was very joyful,” Pochettino stated of this right-back. “We’re really happy too. I think the operation was good.
“First half has been fantastic, his focus and focus.
“He wants to show and be constant. It’s not one game and the second game intensity and the attention begin to drop. That’s the key in our group, not only him but most of of the players.
“All of the players need to be constant and understand that every time we are going to compete we must provide our best.
“Give like a collective our best and for sure we’ve got the caliber to beat any team.”
Aurier is currently in a fight with Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth for its place, maybe not that he considers that himself according to a interview.
He maintained that there was”no competition” for his place in the team, but Pochettino hasn’t seen it.
“I didn’t find those quotations,” he said. “No, I really didn’t see but you realize, if once I talk with him it’s always very obvious. I didn’t see though.”
