Aurier: I won’t reject transfer to Pochettino’s PSG
Tottenham Hotspur star Serge Aurier says that he won’t turn down a return to Paris Saint-Germain, the club where former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to take over at.
Aurier spent three years at PSG earlier in his career before Pochettino signed him for Tottenham in 2017 for £23 million.
Pochettino left Spurs last year but he is expected to return to football management at the Parc des Princes.
The Argentine coach is set to replace Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked earlier this week after a disappointing first half to the season.
And Aurier insists that he would jump at the chance to return to PSG, a club that he has so much love for.
“When I say PSG is the club close to my heart, I don’t want journalists to say ‘He can’t say that!’ But of course I will answer,” the full-back stated.
“It’s the club I’ve loved the most out of all the clubs I’ve played for.
“Paris is where I turned into a man, as a professional, where I discovered myself more. That’s where I enjoyed myself the most.
“When I was a youngster at Lens, Paris was the club of my heart.
“One day, it would be no problem at all to go back, with pleasure. I will never turn down an offer from Paris, that is absolutely certain.
“If ever it comes up, why not? If it doesn’t, I’m very happy where I am and things are going well for me.”
Aurier, 28, is closing in on 100 appearances for Tottenham.
