Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed David Ornstein’s claim that Jose Mourinho would like to sign back up for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this January.
According to Ornstein, writing in a mailbag article for The Athletic, while Mourinho is said to be ‘satisfied with his existing options’ in the Spurs side, the journalist has heard that the 57-year-old ‘would like some back-up for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the defensive midfield role’ in January.
So far this season, the £27 million-rated midfielder, who joined Spurs from Southampton in a £14.94 million deal back in August, has highly impressed in Mourinho’s side, playing every minute of Tottenham’s 14 Premier League fixtures, over which he has made an average of 2.9 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, two clearances and 69.9 passes per match, culminating in an average WhoScored match rating of 6.95 – ranking him as the club’s fifth-best performer in the top flight.
And, after The Spurs Express relayed Ornstein’s transfer claim on Twitter, fans of Spurs flocked to have their say on the matter.
Do you think that Spurs need to sign back up for Hojbjerg in January?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to David Ornstein’s claim?
“Skippy coming back next year don’t reckon it’s even necessary”
“We should sign Bissouma as a Moussa replacement and use Moussa as a backup for Højbjerg. Recall Skipp in summer and sell Moussa.”
“Already have one”
“Bring skippy back then. Why sign another player?”
“oliver skipp balling out with the canaries, no need”
“Finally he realized mans needs a break”
All in all, it would appear that opinion as to whether Spurs need to sign back up for Hojbjerg in January is rather split, as some fans believe that Oliver Skipp could play the role for Spurs, while others appeared keen for Mourinho to bring in reinforcements in defensive midfield in order to afford the Dane a break.
