Moussa Sissoko hailed Serge Aurier’s response to the new Tottenham competition by signing Matt Doherty.
The middleman claims that the deep-rooted strength of the Paddys would inspire players to be at their best, pointing to Aurier as a prime example.
Since Doherty had been signed by Wolves for a reported £ 14.7 million, Aurier would have to fight for his spot on the right-back.
Aurier made an excellent show at the Manchester United 6-1 thrashing last time out, with the Ivory Coast International marking its first start of the season with a goal and an assist.
“That’s Serge’s character, and if you want to get the best of anyone, you need to put some pressure on him, and that’s what we have now a good squad,” Sissoko told the club’s official website.
“You can see in every position, two, three, or four players. You have to give 100 percent in every training session, every game, and that’s is good, because if anyone is exhausted, someone else can play and it won’t affect the team. It is going to benefit everyone as a player, as a team, as a squad. It’s going to be good for everyone. Let’s keep going, let’s try to make things better, we know we can, and hopefully, we’ll be happy at the end of the season.”
