“Some people know nothing about football” – Tottenham star reveals why he doesn’t use social media

Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier opens up about he isn’t active on social media

Speaking in an interview with Soccer Stories – Oh My Goal (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier says he doesn’t want to use social media because of the lack of constructive criticism on it.

The Ivorian has found more minutes under Jose Mourinho recently. Whenever fit, he has started for Spurs and has had a largely impressive season playing at right-back.

However, he has had a few underwhelming games, and he wants the fans and his friends to be honest to him about it. This is why he doesn’t use social media, he says.

Aurier prefers constructive criticism which can help him improve for the future. Fake praise doesn’t do any good and he believes that it is not the way to progress further in your career.

“I never go on social media to check… what people are saying about me. Some people know nothing about football, but they’d speak about how… ‘you played fantastic’ while you know you didn’t play well.”

No need for fake praise

The 28-year-old right-back says that self-critique is important to progress. Aurier, who joined the club in 2017, has steadily become a major player for the club despite Spurs signing Matt Doherty last summer.

Serge Aurier arrived from PSG to Tottenham Hotspur in the 2017 summer transfer window.

“It’s very important that you self-critique. It’s very important to not lie to yourself and to have close friends able to say ‘no, you were not good, you were bad'”

The French international missed the 3-0 loss to Manchester City after he revealed that he failed a late fitness test. He would be hoping to return in time for when Spurs take on Wolfsberg on tonight.
