The video will start in 8 Cancel Tottenham defender Serge Aurier has admitted he was ready to leave the club this summer.

But despite getting no further than the bench this season, Aurier insisted there is no competition at Spurs and believes the club's decision not to sell him shows their confidence in him.

Although the summer departure of Kieran Trippier had been expected to see the 26-year-old given more opportunities, the right-back is yet to make any appearances for Spurs this season.

Instead, Pochettino has opted to play Kyle Walker-Peters for most of Spurs' opening matches and even chose to start Davinson Sanchez in place of Aurier for the recent 2-2 draw with Arsenal after an injury to the young full-back.

"Now the transfer window is over and we must focus on the upcoming season.” Since making the move to Spurs two years ago, Aurier has played just 41 games in all competitions for the north London club.

Before then, Pochettino's side host Crystal Palace on Saturday looking for their first win since the opening weekend of the season after draws against Manchester City and Arsenal, and a surprise home defeat to Newcastle .

Although Walker-Peters is back in training after his hamstring issue, it remains to be seen whether Aurier's involvement will increase in the coming weeks with Tottenham set to start their Champions League campaign at Olympiacos on Wednesday.
