A whole host of Tottenham Hotspur fans are very angry on Twitter following Paul Merson’s comments about Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
The Denmark international enjoyed a very successful debut season for the north London club, starting every single game in the Premier League and managed to rack up two goals and four assists while playing as a defensive midfielder.
Do you think fans should be able to stand during Tottenham matches?
Hojbjerg has carried on from where he left off last season, having started all five Premier League games this time around. So with having played under three different managers during his time at Spurs and being selected by all of them, he must be doing something right, although Merson does not agree, having claimed on the 90min YouTube channel that the midfielder ‘thinks he’s better than he is‘.
A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans are fuming on Twitter with Merson’s comments.
What have these Spurs fans had to say?
“Probably the most humble member of the squad. Would go through a brick wall for his teammates. Has been much, much better for Spurs than Partey has been for Arsenal. Merson simply trying to stoke the fires before Sunday. Hope @hojbjerg23 sees his comments #COYS“
“Hojberg is literally one of the best in his position in the league”
“Worst football take”
“One of the most humble players we’ve had. The clowns keep getting paid to give these ridiculous opinions.”
Having arrived from Southampton last summer for just £15 million, signing Hojbjerg is now looking to be an absolute steal of a player and considering his regular partner so far this season in Oliver Skipp has come through the academy, Spurs have a solid midfield duo that cost them only £15 million in total.
It’s certainly not an area where Spurs are short of options, as they have Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso who can play in the middle, which is great competition to have as it will continue to push Skipp and Hojbjerg to maintain their high standards or face being dropped – but it seems fans are just fine with how the Dane has performed in north London, despite Merson’s comments.
