Tottenham Hotspur right-back Serge Aurier has denied claims he spat at supporters during their Champions League victory against Olympiacos on Tuesday.

The Ivory Coast international delivered an impressive performance, scoring and providing an assist.

However, while celebrating his goal in the encounter, video footage appeared to show the defender spitting towards fans.

“Little personal message to correct a controversy, I will never spit on animals, let alone humans,” Aurier posted on Instagram.

“Let alone fans of this club that gives me the opportunity to express myself and do my job.

“Let's focus on the most important goals that are coming soon. Thank you all for the support.”

Aurier, who has made 11 appearances this season, will hope to continue his impressive form when Tottenham take on Bournemouth on Saturday.
