Serge Aurier’s Brother Christopher was shot dead at 5 am this morning, according to reports.
The gunman is still at large after the incident in Toulouse, France residents called the police after finding
the 26-year-old on the ground.
He was allegedly shot in the stomach before the killer fled the scene. Christopher was then pronounced dead
at Toulouse University Hospital.
Tottenham Hotspur F.C has paid tribute to Christopher with a post shared to their Twitter page.
Alongside a picture of Serge’s shirt, it read: “The Club is deeply saddened to confirm media reports that
Serge Aurier’s brother passed away in the early hours of the morning.
“Everybody at the club sends their sincerest condolences to Serge and his family.
“Our thoughts are with them all.”
Christopher, brother of 62-cap Ivory Coast international Serge, played football at an amateur level.
Like Serge, Christopher progressed through the ranks at RC Lens in the early stages of his career.
He had a trial with Brentford back in 2011, but failed to cut with the Championship side.
Speaking in 2017, he explained of his failed trial: “Brentford were in League One at the time. Everything
went well with my trial, but I could not speak English at the time.
“The coach [Uwe Rosler] told me: ‘It’s a shame you can’t understand my instructions. I’d have signed you otherwise.’
