Paul Robinson fears Serge Aurier has regressed into the player he was last season for Tottenham.
The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, slammed the 28-year-old for his “terrible” performance at Zagreb in midweek.
Aurier started Spurs’ shock 3-0 Europa League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday, but was missing from the squad that bounced back at Villa Park on Monday night.
On Twitter, the club revealed the right-back and Toby Alderweireld were absent for the 2-0 win because of illness.
Robinson believes there is still “a lot of fallout” to come from Jose Mourinho’s side’s Europa League exit.
“Tanganga got his chance against Villa because Aurier played in Zagreb and he was back to the Aurier of last year,” he told Football Insider.
“I thought he had rejuvenated himself this season. He looked as if he had sparked himself into life after the arrival of Doherty in the summer.
“He had a few very decent performances but he was terrible the other night.
“I feel there is still a lot of fallout to come from the Zagreb game.”
Football Insider understands Tottenham are planning to offload Aurier this summer even though he has been a first choice for some of the season.
The right-back, who some of the coaching staff regard as “uncoachable”, is under contract at Spurs until the summer of 2022.
