Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hardly put a foot wrong during his time in charge and that’s why he’s the perfect man to lead the club into the new stadium.
But the Spurs boss could be about to make a rare blunder, with reports suggesting that defender Serge Aurier could be offloaded on the cheap in the summer.
According to the Sun, Spurs are “particularly keen” to sell the right-back at the end of the season and he could be available for half the £23million they paid for him in 2017.
It would be poor from the North London club to sell him for around £11.5million fee, as that would be a bargain for others and he’s still under contract until 2022 with them.
Aurier is an experienced player that is still aged just 26 and has shown on his day he can be a Rolls-Royce of a player on the flank.
The Ivory Coast international does have inconsistencies in his game when it comes to going forward and also gets caught out at times defensively.
But getting rid of the ex-Paris Saint-Germain defender in the summer could be a serious error.
Kieran Trippier has looked out of sorts at right-back this campaign and there doesn’t appear to be much to split him and Aurier.
Spurs should at least be holding out for the £23million they coughed up for Aurier in the first place if he is to be shown the exit doors, as the speed machine would improve most Premier League teams and has European pedigree.
He perhaps deserves another shot next year in the new ground and if he can find the right balance to his game he could be an important player moving forward.
