New Tottenham summer signing Serge Aurier has told that last year’s addition Moussa Sissoko has helped him to adapt to the new dressing room due to him knowing the attacker well.
Aurier, 24, made the switch to Spurs on the summer deadline day for a fee of £23million from cash-rich French side Paris Saint-Germain.
Sissoko himself has often been criticised following his massive £30million move from Newcastle last summer.
However, Aurier and Sissoko spent a year together at Toulouse back in 2013 and the right-back has shared that he has a good relationship with the France international and he feels he has helped him settle in north London.
“My integration is good,” told Aurier, as quoted by RMC Sport.
“I know a few people, especially Moussa (Sissoko), with whom I played in Toulouse, so I can integrate as best I can. I was very pleased to be in this dressing room.”
Aurier made his first start for Tottenham in last Wednesday’s Champions League group stage 3-1 win against German club Borussia Dortmund.
He was then pushed back to the bench for Saturday evening’s 0-0 draw against Swansea, but he managed to come on for a 27-minute cameo.
Sissoko, meanwhile has been handed starts in three of Tottenham’s opening six matches in all competitions this season, but he has yet to complete a full 90 minutes, while he is also still waiting for his first Spurs goal.
