Aurier to decide if he wants to play following brother's death-Mourinho

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said he will let Serge Aurier decide if he wants to play or not following the death of his brother.

Media reports began to circulate on Monday claiming Christopher Aurier had been shot outside of a nightclub in Toulouse.

The 26-year-old's death was later confirmed in a statement by Spurs.


Tottenham are in action against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Mourinho confirmed he will talk with Aurier before deciding whether to involve him, while he also confirmed the player can go back to France should he wish.

"He can do what he wants. Let me speak with him. We are going to make the decision that he wants. We are going to speak," he said.

"He's here now. I don't know his state of mind. We are not going to put any pressure on him. Maybe he travels with us, because it's good for him.

"I have no idea. The only thing that is clear is that we are here to support him."
