Ryan Mason praises Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as Spurs see off Wolves
Interim Spurs manager, Ryan Mason, was full of praise for his squad today as he picked out Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s ‘desire’ as being key to the Dane scoring.
Hojbjerg enjoyed a rare game of attacking productivity against Wolves. The Danish tough man scored a goal and set one up as well as he put in another assured performance.
The former Southampton man is one of Jose Mourinho’s best signings and is a player who any incoming manager will be delighted to have in and around the squad.
And speaking to Football.London following the game, Mason pointed out just why Hojbjerg sets a good example for his teammates.
“Pierre has had a very good season for this football club. I’m not too sure what he’s doing in the six yard box to be perfectly honest but he felt it was right and that came from an excellent piece of play from Reggy as well,” Mason said.
“The desire never to give up and to compete for every single ball and that’s what can happen, you can create chances from that. So very pleasing performance from Pierre. Not just his goal and assist but overall I thought he helped the team and everyone collectively was very good today.”
Harry Kane got the opening goal for Spurs before Hojbjerg fired in a rebound from Gareth Bale’s effort.
TBR View: Hojbjerg one of the signings of the entire season
For the price they paid, Spurs have to be happy with the signing of Hojbjerg this season. He’s been excellent and one of the most consistent performances in a season marred by ups and downs.
The Dane was everywhere today, as is becoming the norm. When he scored, it was clear to see how well liked he is among the Spurs squad and if Mourinho has left anything behind, it is Hojbjerg.
