Serge Aurier Reveals Why He Didn’t Sign For Barcelona

share on:

Tottenham defender Sergie Aurier has claimed Barcelona pulled the plug on a deal to sign him because of his bad reputation.

He told Canal Plus: “I think my reputation made four or five big European sides afraid. I was negotiating with Barcelona, very advanced negotiations. And Barcelona’s people were not sure if I came here things would be different.”

Serge Aurier has played eight times for Spurs since his £23million move to north London.

He added: “”It was the right choice. After a while, I did not feel comfortable with the media.

“For me, it was never going to end. After a while, I felt like a prisoner, with a camera on my back.

“By staying in France, I would have never washed this image.”
