‘leaves a lot to be desired’: ESPN pundit slams 28-year-old’s display for Spurs vs Man Utd

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur played out a draw against Manchester United at the weekend and they will be disappointed to come away with just one point from the game.

The north London outfit were undoubtedly the better team over the ninety minutes and they will feel that they could have picked up all three points on another day.

ESPN pundit Craig Burley has now reflected on the performance of the Londoners, and he has criticised the performance of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in particular. Burley believes that the 28-year-old Denmark international midfielder put on an underwhelming display, and his passing left a lot to be desired.

“Hojbjerg and Skipp don’t get in the side do they? I mean I get what Don’s [Hutchison] saying about Hojbjerg, but sometimes his passing leaves a lot to be desired,” the pundit said. “Some of his passing today was a little sloppy.”

Hojbjerg did seem wasteful with the ball at his feet and he gave away possession cheaply at times. The midfielder has struggled for regular game time at Tottenham this season and he has been linked with the move away from the club.

It is evident why he has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot under Ange Postecoglou.

While there is no doubt that he has been a useful servant for Tottenham over the years, he is clearly not suited to Tottenham’s current style of play and it remains to be seen whether the north London outfit can move him on in the coming months.
