Moment of madness tackle highlights just how big a liability Serge Aurier is for Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur have something of a shortage at the right-back position.

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League last night. The German side ended up running riot with a 7-2 win in London, with former Arsenal talent Serge Gnabry scoring four of the Bundesliga giants’ goals. 

Plenty of Tottenham players had games to forget. Harry Winks put in one of his worst performances in a Spurs shirt, Harry Kane struggle to have an impact whilst the back-two of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld did not cover themselves in glory. 

However, nobody struggled more than right-back Serge Aurier.

The Ivorian defender put in a horror-show display at right-back following on from his red card against Leicester City at the weekend. 

Once again, he has shown just how unreliable he is for Tottenham and just why the club were seemingly happy to let him go in the summer. 

If one moment best sums up his liability status, it has to be his bizarre attempt to leap-frog Bayern left-back David Alaba. Instead of clearing the Austrian, Aurier landed with both feet on top of the Bayern defender. Quite how he got away without a yellow card, or even a red, is quite shocking.

 

The moment was perfectly encapsulated by this tweet from BBC Radio 5 Live. 

But based on how the rest of his performance panned out, Tottenham might have done better if he had been given his marching orders.
