Ange Postecoglou talks about Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s impact against Manchester City

In a thrilling 3-3 draw against Manchester City, Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was top-class. Rightly earning commendation from the manager as well, the Dane put in an absolute shift in the middle of the park for Ange Postecoglou.

The Danish midfielder entered the fray at half-time, replacing Bryan Gil. Postecoglou was quick to praise Hojbjerg’s influence on the team’s performance, highlighting the positive changes observed in the second half.

His tenacity and work-rate surely induced a sense of positive change in the way Spurs played in the second half. Moreover, his coming in allowed Giovani Lo Celso to take his natural #10 role and that also helped Tottenham as the Argentine midfielder scored a wondergoal to bring his team level.

Ange was full of praise for Hojbjerg‘s performance and here is what the manager had to say via football.london:

“I think it helped. I thought Pierre was excellent in the second half. His experience out there, I thought we just as a group had a lot more conviction about our football, just passing it and not second guessing ourselves and being hesitant with our passes like we did in the first half.”

Top Game for the Dane!

Hojbjerg’s impact went beyond the scoresheet, reflecting his ability to bring stability and assurance to the midfield. His experience and composure on the ball contributed to a more confident and assertive style of play from Spurs, especially in possession. As Tottenham strives for consistency and improvement, having a player of Hojbjerg’s calibre becomes indispensable.

The performance against Manchester City showcased his versatility and his knack for seamlessly slotting into the team when called upon. While his contributions may not always grab the headlines, the Danish international consistently delivers the essential elements that stabilize the midfield and complement the attacking facets of the game.

In the broader context of Tottenham’s squad management, Hojbjerg’s role becomes even more crucial. The recent injury setbacks, including Rodrigo Bentancur’s ankle issue, emphasize the need for depth and reliability in the middle of the park.
