Serge Aurier bids farewell to Spurs


Serge Aurier has said his goodbyes to Tottenham Hotspur fans.

Aurier recently joined Spanish La Liga outfit Villarreal on a one-year contract with an option to renew for another year.

At Spurs, the Ivorian played 77 top-flight games scoring five goals and assisted another 12 strikes in the four seasons he spent in London.

He was also a key member of the squad that managed to reach the 2018/19 Uefa Champions League final where Spurs lost to Liverpool.

The defender took to social media to bid farewell to the London-based club and its fans.

“First of all, I would like to thank all the Spurs fans for these four wonderful seasons with you.

“They were all different, but I leave with some great memories. I really enjoyed playing the game wearing your colours proudly.

“It is true that not everything was perfect, there were moments of joy and sadness but know one thing, I have always played 100%, without cheating.

“I have never seen myself at another club in England if not at your place and I didn’t see myself joining the enemy even less because I have too much respect for our club, for our history and for all our moments shared together.

“You have shown unfailing support during these four seasons and I really want to thank you because you have given me so much.”

Aurier is currently with the Ivory Coast national team as the Elephants prepare to take on Malawi in a 2022 Fifa World Cup qualification double-header.
