Thomas Meunier has claimed that Tottenham defender Serge Aurier is as good as Paris-Saint Germain star Dani Alves. Meunier said, “For me, Serge and Dani are equal.”
This will be exciting news to Spurs fans considering that Alves is regarded as one of the most talented defensive players of the modern generation.
Spurs signed Aurier for a fee of £23 million during the transfer window and this came a month after PSG recruited Alves on a free transfer.
Aurier’s competitor for the right back spot at Spurs, Kieran Trippier has also described him as a “good signing”.
The Ivorian started for the North London club during their Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund and made his first Premier League start against West Ham in September.
It was not a day to remember as he received his marching orders following two reckless challenges within the space of a few minutes.
