Harry Kane dedicated his decisive goals to his Tottenham teammate Serge Aurier – who could now miss the rest of the season after the tragic death of his brother. Aurier disputed the Spurs’ 3-1 overall victory in Newcastle on Wednesday evening, just two days after his brother Christopher was shot dead in front of a nightclub in France.

Tottenham’s right-back should fly to France on Thursday to be with his broken-hearted mom.

Kane scored twice against Newcastle to boost his team’s push to Europe, bringing his club-total goals total to 201 against 350 games.

And afterwards, the English captain turned to Twitter to dedicate his double to his devastated teammate.

“This victory was for you @Serge_aurier. Very proud to have reached 200 club goals. Of the next 200, “Kane tweeted.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho praised Aurier for making the trip to St James’ Park, although the defender was under no pressure to do so.

And with Tottenham having only two Premier League games this season, the manager wouldn’t be surprised if the 27-year-old missed the rest of the campaign.

“We will always support his decision,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“If he decides not to play before the end of the season, we would respect that.

“Each person has different ways of dealing with tragedies like this and asked to play.

“Tomorrow, he is going to France to see his mother, which we support of course.”

Christopher Aurier, 26, was shot in the abdomen outside a nightclub in Toulouse, France, at 5 a.m. local time Monday morning.

He later died in hospital, a suspect having since surrendered to the police.

Spurs confirmed information on the tragic incident on Monday in an article posted on the club’s official Twitter account: “The club is deeply saddened to confirm media reports that Serge Aurier’s brother died early this morning.

“Everyone at the club sends their sincere condolences to Serge and his family. Our thoughts are with them all. ”
