Serge Aurier saddened by Tottenham news overnight involving 27-year-old star.


Following Monday night’s announcement by Tottenham Hotspur of Davinson Sanchez’s departure, Nottingham Forest player Serge Aurier responded on Instagram.

Davinson Sanchez left Tottenham after six years and joined Galatasaray, a Turkish powerhouse.

According to a statement made on Instagram by Tottenham, “We have reached an agreement with Turkish Süper Lig side Galatasaray for the transfer of Davinson Sanchez.”

The following Instagram post from Spurs honored the former Ajax player for his contributions to the team. Serge Aurier wrote the term “Patron” along with the sobbing and love emojis.

Before Aurier left Hotspur Way in 2021, the two played together there. Aurier is now thriving for Nottingham Forest, who over the weekend defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

But now Sanchez, who under Mauricio Pochettino was a high-profile transfer, is ready to begin a new chapter in his career after struggling to advance at Spurs.

Correct call for Sanchez to move on

The 27-year-old should have departed a long time ago, possibly when Daniel Levy fired Jose Mourinho, to put it bluntly.

At that point, Spurs needed to start cleaning house and overhauling the defense, which had a history of inconsistency and mistakes, especially during cup matches.

And Sanchez has frequently been in the center of it. Tanguy Ndombele will join the Colombian star in Turkey.


‘He will surely get it’: Postecoglou eyeing first-team role for ‘phenomenal’ Tottenham teenager.

Ashley Phillips, a teenage Tottenham Hotspur player, is impressing new manager Ange Postecoglou greatly and will stick with the first squad.

Davinson Sanchez’s impending departure from Tottenham Hotspur suggests that Ashley Phillips will take on a larger role at the club.

According to Sky Sports, since moving from Blackburn Rovers in the summer, Phillips has ‘impressed’ Ange Postecoglou in training.

Phillips was acquired by Tottenham this summer for under £2 million, bringing the teenager from Blackburn Rovers.

Given that Phillips had already participated in 14 first-team games for Rovers, that felt like an incredible deal.

With a height of 6 feet 4 inches, the 18-year-old is a massive presence and seems to have made an impression on Postecoglou during his first few weeks at Tottenham.

According to a 90min story from August, Tottenham planned to send Phillips out on loan for the entire season in order to give him more first-team experience.

Postecoglou sparked the loan U-turn, thus Phillips is now remaining at Tottenham and is anticipated to play a larger first-team part than initially anticipated.

On Monday, Tottenham made an unexpected choice and traded defender Davinson Sanchez to Galatasaray in Turkey.

Although Sanchez was available in the summer, Tottenham failed to sign a new center back by the deadline.

Despite having a serious shortage of depth at center back, particularly now that Eric Dier is not in Postecoglou’s plans, Spurs have nonetheless decided to flog Sanchez.

Tottenham might have serious difficulties if Cristian Romero or Micky van de Ven were to get hurt, and Phillips appears to be in line for potential Premier League playing time.

Before that happens, Ben Davies might play center back, but if Sanchez is sold without a replacement, Phillips will likely play a far larger part than initially thought.

Tony Mowbray called Phillips “phenomenal” when he was in charge of Blackburn, and it appears that Postecoglou shares his opinion of the young man who is excelling at Tottenham.

90min reported in August that Tottenham were expected to send Phillips out on loan for the season with first-team exposure in mind.

However, Phillips is now staying at Tottenham and is expected to have a bigger first-team role than first thought with Postecoglou sparking that loan U-turn.

Tottenham made a surprise decision on Monday as they sold defender Davinson Sanchez to Turkish side Galatasaray.

Sanchez was available in the summer but the deadline passed without Tottenham bringing in a new centre back.

Spurs have still decided to flog Sanchez despite a real lack of depth at centre back – especially with Eric Dier not in Postecoglou’s plans.
