Video: Tottenham's players all left clapping after £15m midfielder scores brilliant goal in training

Antonio Conte is putting his Tottenham Hotspur players through their paces ahead of the upcoming season. 

The Spurs players were spotted collapsing during their pre-season tour of South Korea as the Italian put the team through gruelling running drills. 

But there is still some time for shooting practice and lighter training drills as shown on the club’s YouTube channel and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored a goal that earned him a round of applause from his team mates, as well as a huge cheer from Heung-Min Son.

Hojbjerg scores brilliant goal in training 

On the club’s official YouTube channel, there is a moment where Hojbjerg scores an superb chipped goal during training

The 26-year-old left young goalkeeper Brandon Austin dumbfounded as he floated the ball over his head from just outside the penalty area. 

And it certainly went down well with his Spurs teammates as they were left clapping after the sublime goal. 

Hojbjerg has been an ever-present part of Spurs’ side since joining from Southampton for a fee of £15 million back in the summer of 2020 (Sky Sports). 

And the Danish international continued to be a mainstay under Conte last season as he played 36 games in the Premier League. 

But Hojbjerg faces further competition this year after Tottenham signed Yves Bissouma from Brighton and now Conte has brilliant options to choose from in central midfield.

If the Dane is turning on the style like this in training though, he’ll certainly be staking his claim to keep his position in Spurs’ side. 

Tottenham and Hojbjerg continue their pre-season schedule tomorrow as they face Rangers at the Ibrox stadium. The Spurs man will be hoping to make an impression on Conte as he looks to keep his place in the side with Oliver Skipp also back from injury. 

Conte’s men kick-off their Premier League campaign in just over two weeks against Southampton and it will be intriguing to see who the Italian picks for the centre-midfield positions.
