I wanted to leave but now I’m calm and happy to stay, says Tottenham right-back Aurier

The Ivory Coast international, Serge Aurier, has put the disappointment of being prevented from leaving Tottenham in the summer transfer window, insisting he is happy at the Premier League club.

Aurier made his first appearance of the season and was involved in the build-up for two of the goals in the 4-0 romp over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The 26-year-old last played in the Premier League in February has had a difficult time at the club following his 2017 move. He said he wanted to leave due to a “personal situation”.

The 26-year-old said there was no rift with boss Mauricio Pochettino and is now looking to the future.

He said,

“Yes, but that was the situation before the transfer window closed. The transfer window is now closed. Now I am calm and happy to stay.

“I speak to everyone. I don’t want to leave. I had something in my head, but I didn’t want to leave for the gaffer or the chairman (Daniel Levy).

“It was my personal situation and now it is OK. Everyone wants to give me another chance and now I am happy to stay and happy to play and happy for the victory.”

Aurier is hoping to be involved as Spurs begin their Champions League campaign this week with a trip to Greek side Olympiakos.
