Pierre Hojbjerg is someone I warm to more and more each time I see or hear him, to me, he behaves, conducts himself as one would want a professional footballer too. No finger tricks, no peripheral nonsense, just an obvious outstanding devotion to duty.
In the Danish outlet Exstra Baldet we get this gift of an article in which Pierre reveals that he’s grateful to Mourinho for giving him a role that suits him well and developing his game. So Pierre isn’t at war with the 58-year-old.
When discussing the flatlining of Spurs’ season, the Dane acknowledges that things have changed and not for the better, but doesn’t wish to talk up the doom and gloom. Pierre uses a cracking phrase at this point, ‘I don’t want to paint hell on the wall’, to describe his unwillingness to dwell upon the situation. Indeed, the 24-year-old wants to get his teeth into all the remaining games.
We can see from this graphic that Pierre has become an extremely reliable player for Tottenham.
