What fans are saying about Serge Aurier for playing Tottenham game despite brother's death

Serge Aurier starts for Tottenham today, just two days after the death of his brother Christopher 🙏


Reactions


@Shoyo

He should not start this match

The thought of his bro's death might still b in his head


@Chris

What a stupid thing of you to say. Of course he's not going to ever forget what he's gone through just now. Football may be a means of comfort for him and he's going to be extra motivated in the name of his brother


@Dace

Well the motivation part is not a lie

That makes sense but don't u think that it's to early to play someone; start for that matter 2 days after losing his brother


@Bern

Look up Brett Favre, Torrey Smith or Kwon Alexander. All NFL players played arguably the best games of their careers days after their loved ones died. Sometimes they feel their loved ones with them and just snap


@chan

Khalid Boulahrouz during Euros 08 lost his child and continued playing. I still remember this. Brave ppl.


@Niko

literally every professional athlete gets the opportunity to sit out after a family death. Most choose to play through it because their dedicated


@Stacko

Neymar would go a whole year before coming back


@Neutron

I mean how long would you stop playing a sport if your brother was murdered? I don't think there's a set time that should be expected of anyone


@Mark

You can't be playing under Jose and not be a MAN. He knows that this is the best time to play with desire, everything he will be doing right now would be in memory of his brother! Strong good lad!


@Nade

I just read that he asked to be included in the game

Massive massive respect to him..takes courage and determination to step into the game after what happened

Not a spurs fan, but hope they win today..for Christopher ❤️


@Willo

Took Massive courage for him to start especially after Losing a loved one, especially someone so close to you.. I wish him well and good luck.. That's gotta be one of the hardest things he's ever guna have to do


@Bizi

this only happens when you are being coached by Mourinho. I guess he doesn't want to be his next victim


@Sali

All the best to him tonight🙏🏿 his brother would undoubtedly be proud watching over him tonight. Hope he can get a good result.
