Tottenham defender Serge Aurier is starting to blossom under Jose Mourinho

Tottenham signed Serge Aurier for £23million (BBC) back in 2017 from Paris Saint-Germain and he’s someone that arrived with a decent reputation.

The attack-minded right-back had been spotted as a rising talent at the French giants and he looked ideal for Premier League football.

He’s a full-back that has blistering pace and raw power, but he certainly has frustrated supporters at times in North London during his Spurs career due to some poor errors and lapses in concentration.

There were some standout moments during his first couple of years with the club, but injuries and real inconsistent form left him in position with plenty doubting him.

Aurier now has seven assists in 23 games across all competitions this campaign and it seems like he’s really stepped up his attacking output.

The 27-year-old is finally beginning to get some reward for his advancing runs and looks a lot more composed when it comes to his crossing.

He still has some weaknesses with his back to goal, but Mourinho is the master at improving defenders and he is starting tog et a tune out of him

The Ivory Coast international needs to keep going with his recent form and it looks like he could be the long-term solution at right-back after all, as he’s always had the potential to be.
