Aurier bags hat-trick but still hits back over haircut

The Ivory Coast worldwide is being investigated by Spurs after reportedly breaching lockdown rules in the United Kingdom for a third time since the global health emergency began.

That would violate the UK's social distancing regulations.

But the right-back will now be asked to explain himself over why he felt the need to get his hair cut at a time when hairdressers have been ordered to remain closed until July.

The full-back had posted videos of himself running with a friend and training with Tottenham team-mate Moussa Sissoko.

There is, however, evidence that Aurier broke social distancing recommendations.

Aurier, 27, has posted a photo on Instagram with a barber, the day after Tottenham's first team returned to small-group training under strict social-distancing rules.

After writing "Bla-bla-bla" followed by several snoozing emojis in a post on Instagram Stories, Aurier wrote: "My hairdresser is negative and me too so stop talking in a vacuum and put on masks and gloves when you come to take pictures at the training centre it's part of the rules too".

Aurier also tagged the account of Justin Carr - a hairdresser who counts Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Manchester City's Kyle Walker among his clients - but it is unclear when the pictures were taken.

Even without these transgressions, Aurier was in danger of being sold by Spurs this summer anyway. After that, the pair issued a joint statement of apology.

The former PSG defender was convicted of assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub in 2016, suspended three Champions League matches for calling a referee a "dirty son of a b*tch" on Twitter, and has endured other incidents.

Having been tested for coronavirus with the rest of the squad and returning a negative result, Aurier was pictured arriving at Tottenham's Enfield training ground on Wednesday.
