Drogba questions Aurier team choice

Ivory Coast and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has claimed Tottenham’s Serge Aurier has signed for the wrong team.


Aurier joined Tottenham from French giants Paris Saint-Germain for £23million on transfer deadline day.

The right-back was linked with a move to Chelsea earlier in the summer but he ending up joining Spurs, with Blues boss Antonio Conte signing Davide Zappacosta from Torino instead.

Drogba is close friends with Aurier having played with him for two years with Ivory Coast.

He revealed he spoke with Aurier about his arrival in the Premier League.

Drogba says he will offer him advice but jokingly claimed he should have joined Chelsea instead of their London rivals Tottenham.

“I just spoke to him a few hours ago,” Drogba said on Sky Sports.

“He’s so happy to be in England and of course we’re going to help him. 

“He’s my younger brother so I’m going to give him some tips. 

“But I’m happy for him, very happy for his move.”

Aurier could make his Tottenham debut against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Spurs then take on Swansea at Wembley on Saturday in the league.
