Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has a been great addition for Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.
According to Dimitar Berbatov, signing the midfielder has been a great decision for the Spurs. Hojbjerg moved to Tottenham from Southampton for a reported fee of £15 million ($20m) in August 2020 and has been impressing since then.
“I think one of the major things in the Spurs team, from what I have seen so far, are the people in the middle of the park. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is a f*cking bully, a rock in front of the defence,” the former Tottenham striker told Betfair.
“He knows what he can and can’t do and he’s playing to his strengths. He doesn’t really get much praise but he’s there and he’s doing all the work.
“Mourinho knew exactly what he wanted when they went into the market for a midfielder, and he certainly got all that and more in Hojbjerg.”
Hojbjerg has struck up a great pairing with Moussa Sissoko in midfield and has become a regular part of Mourinho’s starting XI.
“Mousa Sissoko also plays a massive part alongside him and it’s pleasing to see Tanguy Ndombele getting more and more games under his belt,” he added.
