Tottenham Hotspur set to fine Serge Aurier £140,000 for third lockdown breach
The Ivory Coast international’s transgression came to light when he posted a photo of himself with his barber on Instagram. His actions have angered Spurs, who are set to fine the player two weeks worth of wages.
This is the third time now that the Ivory Coast international has been accused of the same since March. Aurier has previously been forced to apologize twice for breaking lockdown rules. He earlier posted a video of himself running with a friend and also training with Tottenham teammate Moussa Sissoko
Spurs feel embarrassed by the player’s actions and it could count against the defender in the future. The player’s actions were also called out by a number of fans on social media. To say his reaction to it was condescending would be to put it kindly.
“My hairdresser is negative and me too so stop talking in a vacuum and put on masks and gloves when you come to take pictures at the training centre. It’s part of the rules too.”
Time to say goodbye!
Aurier is a player who divides opinion. He has often proven himself to be a liability on the potch. It now appears he is the same off it.
At a time when influential social figures have to set an example, the defender has let down both the club and the fans. More so, his reaction to being called out shows apathy and disregard to lockdown guidelines.
Tottenham will be better off shipping out the Ivorian. There are far better defenders who also happen to be responsible public figures out in the market.
