Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg gives honest verdict on Tottenham Hotspur fans booing the team at half-time vs Leeds United

According to Daily Mail Online, Tottenham Hotspur ace Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has weighed in on getting booed by the fans at halftime following the disappointing opening half against Leeds United. However, they did win the match by 2-1 after a strong showing in the second half gave them three points.

Tottenham went into the break after conceding just before the halftime whistle through a Daniel James strike. It was a game of two halves as they came out of the half like a different beast, and through goals from Hojbjerg and Sergio Reguilon, they completed the comeback against Leeds.

The win saw Spurs climb up the table to seventh with 19 points from 12 matches. They are four points off the top four positions and could contend for a Champions League finish should they improve in the games to come.

“I kind of understand it. I hope it won’t happen again but I understand there are high demands, high pressure. The fans have great expectations because we’re a great team, so I take that as a compliment.”

The 26-year-old showed empathy to the fans while saying that he understood their feelings. He vowed not to repeat the first-half display and keep improving to meet the high expectations. He also said the reaction was like a compliment as the supporters felt that the team could do better.

“We’re here to perform well and let the fans celebrate, which is the main thing. We did that in the second half and the fans were incredible in the second half also, so let’s try to do that from the start.”

Hojbjerg says Spurs will not repeat the first-half performance against Leeds.
