Serge Aurier slammed by Roy Keane after Leicester defeat

As reported by Football.london, football pundit Roy Keane has lambasted Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier after the club’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Going into the game without a win in the last two matches against Crystal Palace and Liverpool, it was absolutely critical that we pick up all three points at home against the Foxes. However, a Jamie Vardy penalty and an own goal from Toby Alderweireld condemned Tottenham to a 2-0 loss.

The biggest talking point in the game was the first-half penalty that Serge Aurier conceded. On the cusp of half-time, the Ivory Coast international needlessly barged into the back of Leicester defender Wesley Fofana just inside the box.

After consulting with the VAR and checking the pitch-side monitor, the referee decided to award the visitors the penalty, which Vardy converted without any fuss. It was absolutely silly defending from Aurier when there was no need at all for him to barge into the opposition player in such a manner.

And, speaking after the game, ex-Manchester United captain and pundit Roy Keane has hit out at the 27-year-old for his moment of madness. (h/t Football.london)

“I wanna be careful what I say about this defender because I’ve been down this road before with him. What a madness. There’s no danger, he’s not in on goal, he’s not looking at the ball. He’s an experienced player, madness. He wasn’t thinking. He doesn’t think, this lad doesn’t think.”

Prior to this shambolic display, Aurier had been in decent touch this season. Now, it is likely that Jose will not use the Ivorian in the upcoming matches against Stoke City and Wolves.

The defeat, our second in two games, saw us slip down to the fifth spot in the Premier League table, with Leicester moving second and Manchester United moving into the third place.
