Tottenham Hotspur fans have savaged Serge Aurier after his sending off against Southampton.
Spurs won 2-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday as they bounced back from a disappointing week; they lost to Leicester City last weekend and were then knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Colchester United.
But they were handicapped by the Ivory Coast international, who was shown a first-half red card after two successive yellows.
With Spurs leading after Tanguy Ndombele’s excellent opener, Aurier first hacked Sofiane Boufal to the ground before pulling back Ryan Bertrand, having found himself on the wrong side of the Saints left-back.
Southampton then equalised as Danny Ings capitalised on a Hugo Lloris error, but Harry Kane scored the winning goal to earn Mauricio Pochettino’s men all three points before half-time.
Nevertheless, fans were disgusted by the display from the former PSG right-back, with several calling him some variation of stupid for his first-half horror show.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Serge Aurier is a liability defensively. One of the worst full backs I have ever seen is a Spurs shirt. Two stupid bookings in 4 minutes today also proved brainless ????⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️

I’m out but had to check the HT score, couldn’t wait till full time.
Aurier = liability, been saying it for months.
Lloris= classic error from him, not shocked at all.
Kane= digs us out of a hole because he is the only one with half a brain in the team.#COYS

It's so obvious that the players are the problem not Poch. Some of them quite clearly don't wanna be at the club. Poch has to be given the time and money to rebuild this team. Oh and Aurier has shown yet again he is not the answer to our RB problems. #COYS
