Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has admitted in an Amazon Prime documentary that Serge Aurier’s defending scares him.
The Ivory Coast international has made a number of mistakes this season, leading to calls for Tottenham to invest in a new right-back, with the 27-year-old featuring in all but one of their Premier League matches last term.
A scene in Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming documentary All or Nothing – which airs next Monday – shows Mourinho tearing into Aurier in a pre-match team-talk ahead of their Champions League clash against Olympiacos last year.
OPINION: Mourinho has set Spurs back a decade…it may just suit them
“Serge, you are a marker. You speak good English?” Mourinho asked, to which Aurier nodded.
“I am afraid of you as a marker. Because you are capable of doing a sh*t penalty with VAR. So I am telling you already, I am afraid of you.”
The cameras were following the club for the entire season and were there to witness some dramatic moments.
Mourinho did not let them affect his management style though as he was happy to give candid team-talks, which made fascinating viewing.
In one of his early speeches to his team he accused them of being too nice.
“Maybe I am wrong, I feel that you are honestly a very nice group of guys,” he said. “But for 90 minutes you cannot be nice, for 90 minutes you have to be a bunch of c****, but intelligent c****, not stupid c****. B******* in the sense that you are there to win matches man.
“We have to win. I wouldn’t come here if you were not as good as you were. No chance.”
