Tottenham have verified Serge Aurier’s sibling passed away in the early hours of Monday early morning with French media reporting that he was shot dead in Toulouse.
A club declaration checked out: “The club is deeply saddened to confirm media reports that Serge Aurier’s sibling passed away in the early hours of this morning.
” We are supporting Serge at this tough time and we ask that the privacy of the gamer and his household is respected.
” Everybody at the club sends their sincerest condolences to Serge and his family. Our ideas are with them all.”
Aurier played the complete 90 minutes throughout Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Toolbox on Sunday, which lifted Spurs above their north London competitors.
Reports surfaced in the early hours of Monday that Aurier’s bro had passed away after his body was reported to have been found in Toulouse.
Tottenham have now validated his death and are supporting the right-back, who signed for the club in August 2017.
Spurs are next in Premier League action on Wednesday when they take on Newcastle at St James Park.
