Doherty's arrival shouldn't be the end for Aurier at Spurs

The Irish star joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday but his arrival doesn’t mean the Ivory Coast captain has to depart

With the dust still settling on Tottenham Hotspur’s capture of Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers, and the amusing unveiling of the supposed Gooner deleting tweets associated with Arsenal from social media, the next port of call seems to be how he fits in at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The consensus seems to indicate that Ivory Coast's Serge Aurier would instantly vacate the right-back spot for the Republic of Ireland full-back, but should that conclusion be reached so soon by observers?

In truth, the West African hasn’t always been everyone’s cup of tea since he moved from Paris to London, owing to his rap sheet whilst playing for the dominant force that is Paris Saint-Germain. This list grew longer in North London as mistakes, ranging from a sending off on his league debut to unbelievable losses of concentration in his defensive third, marring the 27-year-old’s time in the Premier League.
