“I think he’s an asset” – Hoddle full of praise for one Tottenham player after his recent performances

By Mehdi Gokal -

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Glenn Hoddle has heaped praise on Brennan Johnson, lauding the versatile attacker for his recent performances and impact at the North London club.

Spurs secured the services of Johnson from Nottingham Forest on deadline day last summer for a significant fee of £47.5 million. While it took him some time to find his footing, Johnson has now showcased his worth, particularly in recent matches.

He came on at half-time against Luton to inspire a comeback win, assisting both the goals.

This stellar performance earned him a start against West Ham, where he promptly delivered by scoring the opener within the first five minutes of the game.

Glenn Hoddle, speaking ahead of the game against West Ham, expressed his admiration for Johnson’s evolution at Spurs.

Hoddle emphasised Johnson’s versatility and ability to impact the game from various positions, highlighting his astute reading of the game both on and off the ball.

He told TNT Sports:

“I think he’s been an excellent sub this season, he kind of comes on when the pressure is off.”

“And he’s played exceedingly well and scored goals and created stuff.”

“It was always going to be an exceedingly slow sort of burner for Brennan to come in and start but I think he’s earned it with the way he’s played.

“He can play left-side or right-side, which is good for him. But he arrives in the penalty area, it’s what I like about him.

“His reading of the game off the ball is as good as his reading on the ball and that’s where I think he’s an asset.”

However, despite Johnson’s early goal against West Ham, Spurs failed to capitalise on their advantage, conceding an equaliser just 15 minutes later through Kurt Zouma.

TBH Says:

The draw comes as a setback for our fight for a top 4 finish. Aston Villa play Manchester City next and are expected to drop points against them.

A win would have put us in a good spot this weekend. However, the race is still on and is expected to go down till the very end.
