Keane slates Aurier after Tottenham defeat

Roy Keane was absolutely scathing in his criticism of Serge Aurier after the Tottenham defender’s woeful performance against Liverpool.

Spurs lost 2-1 at Anfield, where Aurier needlessly gave away a penalty which resulted in Mohamed Salah scoring the winner for the Reds with his spot-kick.

It came after Aurier was given the runaround at right-back – and Danny Rose on the opposite flank didn’t fare much better.

Spurs were put under a barrage of second-half pressure before Aurier’s daft mistake gave Liverpool the opportunity they needed – and it continued a troubled season for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Speaking on Sky Sports, pundit Keane pulled no punches in his assessment of Tottenham’s defending.

“The two full-backs for Spurs – a huge question mark when you compare them to the full-backs of Liverpool,” said the former Manchester United star.

“This guy (Aurier), he’s a car crash. I almost felt five seconds before he did it (gave away a penalty) what he was going to do.

“He was out of position in the first place, recovers well and you’re thinking ‘Just relax, a little bit of composure…’ and then, it’s madness.

“Same with Rose on the other side – madness. This full-back (Aurier), he’s a disaster.”
