‘I have never been a fan’: Craig Burley slams Tottenham midfielder who ‘passes it sideways’

Craig Burley has criticized Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for appearing to be unsuited to Ange Postecoglou’s style of play at Tottenham.


According to the former Chelsea player, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg only “passes it sideways” and has yet to start a Premier League game this season.

A new appearanceEven though they are still trailing 1-0 after 97 minutes, Tottenham this season has a reenergized midfield that is tearing teams apart.After the victory against Sheffield United, Paul Merson admitted something regarding Spurs.

A midfield that lacked flair and bite in the past has been improved by James Maddison’s swagger and attacking strength.

Then, two players who had been having trouble, Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr, are revitalized and performing as promised when they were first acquired.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who started the EFL Cup loss to Fulham, is left to watch from the sidelines as a result.

Hojbjerg not good enough for Tottenham

Burley admitted, “I’ve never been a big Hojbjerg fan. “I just can’t. He seems to be moving about a lot. He passes it backwards before playing with Skipp.

“I think the personnel change, especially in midfield with Maddison added, is just a huge difference,” said the player.

Does Hojbjerg have a future at Tottenham?

There was speculation that the Denmark star may go for the exit door in the summer, but despite the chatter, he stuck put. things has been asserted that his presence in the changing room, along with two other players, makes things a little “awkward.”

Hojbjerg will sit on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, barring an injury.

It wouldn’t be shocking if the transfer window opened up again in January and he left, since Postecoglou might then be able to sign a dynamic midfielder who is more athletic to fit the kind of game he like.
