Southampton strip Tottenham target Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg of club captaincy

According to a report from Sky Sports, Southampton have removed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as club captain, amid links with a summer switch to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Saints midfielder has been heavily linked with a summer move away from the club, with Tottenham touted to be his next destination.

Hojbjerg’s contract is set to expire in the summer of 2021, and he has made it clear that he does not want to extend his contract, which has led to this decision, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed. (h/t Sky Sports)

“No, he will not be captain. I spoke with him and we had an agreement, and made clear that if you decide not to extend your contract, you will not be captain of this team.”
