Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has contested Serge Aurier to make the place his own following his display from the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The Ivory Coast international was playing his first match of the year – and producing his first Premier League launch since February – and – given two assists in Spurs’ largest triumph in their new stadium.
Aurier, that has recovered from a hand injury sustained at the Africa Cup of Nations, has said he wished to leave the club over the summer but appears to have another opportunity – providing he is consistent.
“I believe he was very happy,” Pochettino stated of the right-back. “We’re very happy also. I think that the performance was fantastic.
“First half has been fantastic, his focus and focus.
“He wants to show and be consistent. It’s not just 1 game and the next game intensity and the focus start to drop. That’s the secret in our group, not just him but most of the players.
“All the players will need to be constant and comprehend that each time we will compete we must present our best.
“Give just such as a collective our best and for sure we’ve got the quality to beat any team.”
Aurier is now in a struggle with Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth for its position, not that he believes that himself according to a interview published this week.
He claimed that there was”no contest” for his place in the group, but Pochettino has not seen it.
“I didn’t find those quotations,” he explained. “No, I really did not see but you realize, if once I speak with him it’s always obvious. I didn’t see though.”
