Ex-Spurs star takes social media swipe at Arsenal following Nottingham Forest defeat

The former Lilywhite hasn’t held back

Former Spurs star Serge Aurier has taken to social media to aim a swipe at Arsenal after he helped Nottingham Forest beat the Gunners 1-0 on Saturday, ensuring that the Premier League title went to Manchester City rather than the red side of north London.

The Ivorian spent four years with Tottenham, appearing just over 100 times and helping them to a Carabao Cup and Champions League final, though they lost both.

After a spell at Villarreal, he returned to the Premier League with Nottingham Forest this season, and has been a key part of Steve Cooper’s side, racking up 23 Premier League appearances and looking like a player far-removed from the error-strewn star that he was during his time with the lilywhites.

He was impressive against Arsenal too, playing 90 minutes and keeping first Leandro Trossard and then Gabriel Jesus quiet as a Taiyo Awoniyi goal ensured that they beat the title challengers, and ensured their own safety for next season in the process.

And, not forgetting his roots, the 30-year-old Ivorian took to social media after the game to aim a jab at ending Arsenal’s feint hopes of winning a Premier League title.

‘If we [Tottenham] are not Champions, they will not be Champions too’, he wrote, before adding ‘My Spurs Family’ followed by several love heart emojis.

They have problems of their own though. With no Sporting Director, an unpopular owner and no manager, they are in danger of missing out on UEFA Conference League football as things stand, and could finish as low as ninth should they lose to Leeds United on the final day of the season.
