Chelsea legend Drogba faults ex-team-mate's Spurs move

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba believes his former national team-mate Serge Aurier has joined the wrong Premier League side.

Aurier who was linked with moves to Manchester United and Drogba’s beloved Chelsea signed for Tottenham for £23m on Deadline Day, after three years with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

And Drogba, who spent nine years at Stamford Bridge and is close to the 24-year-old after two years of playing together at international level revealed he spoke with Aurier this week about his arrival in the Premier League.

The Blues icon said he will offer him advice but jokingly claimed he should have joined Chelsea instead of London rivals Spurs in an interview with Sky Sports

“I just spoke to him a few hours ago, he’s so happy to be in England and of course we’re going to help him. He’s my younger brother so I’m going to give him some tips.

“He plays for the wrong team, but I’m happy for him, very happy for his move.” said Drogba

Aurier could make his debut against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday. The defender needed clearance to enter the UK and complete his Spurs switch following his conviction for assault last year. It led to him being refused entry to the UK when PSG came to play Arsenal in last season’s Champions League.
