Speaking solely to Football FanCast, previous Tottenham defender Graham Roberts has hailed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as the “finest midfield player” in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Hojbjerg was signed by ex-Spurs manager Jose Mourinho last summertime and handled to make a favorable impact following his arrival from Southampton.
His effect was so good that it caused his team-mates and Mourinho himself calling him Zidane.
Is Hojbjerg Spurs’ best midfielder?
On Hojbjerg, Roberts just stated to FFC: “I think Hojbjerg is the very best midfielder [at Tottenham]”
Last season, Hojbjerg balanced 2.6 takes on per game in the Premier League, the second-highest average in Spurs’ team, so it is simple to see what he brings to the pitch.
After Harry Kane and Son, the Denmark international is probably the north London club’s most valuable player.
The last couple of weeks have been frustrating for Hojbjerg and his team-mates, losing London derbies to Chelsea and Crystal Palace, 3-0 on both events.
However with the quality of the former Southampton man, Kane and Son, you would anticipate them to bounce back in the league soon.
