Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur are buzzing after Spurs shared some comments which were made by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

During the summer transfer window, the Danish midfielder was brought to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium from Southampton in a £14.94m deal (per Transfermarkt).

The 25-year-old middleman arrived at the club having made 134 appearances for the Saints, in which he managed to bag five goals and provide six assists for teammates.

On Saturday morning, the north London club shared some comments from the midfielder in which he discussed his motivation to push himself in his career.

He said: &8220;I’m proud of who I am, I’m proud of what I do, but I want to be better and I have to be better. This is what drives me every day.”

After the comments were shared by Spurs, lots of supporters flocked to them to gush over what the Dane had said.

Having signed for Spurs for £14.94m during the summer transfer window, his market value now stands at almost double that it has risen to £27m since he signed for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Does Hojbjerg have the potential to be a Spurs legend?

Yes, he's a class player

So far this season, the 25-year-old Dane has made 18 appearances in the Premier League, in which he has not scored but he has assisted twice (per WhoScored).

His performances, though, have been more impressive than his return in front of goal as a 6.97/10 average rating has made him the joint-fifth-best performer in Mourinho’s squad.
