Watch: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s double pirouette leaves Spurs fans drooling
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has made quite an impression on Tottenham fans.
From providing steel in Spurs’ midfield to his brilliant reaction to Serge Aurier’s tackles, the Denmark international has settled into life at Tottenham like a duck to water.
Now, Hjobjerg has demonstrated that he can boss the entire Spurs engine room. During their Europa League game against LASK, Hojbjerg took matters into his own hands.
Wearing a fetching head bandage, Hojbjerg harried one Austrian player off the ball with the effortlessness of a school bully picking the wings from a fly.
With the ball running away from him, the midfielder lunged into another challenge and managed to retain possession.
A neat passing triangle ensued before Hojbjerg decided to firmly establish his dominance over his demoralised opponents.
Some would achieve this by one Zidane turn. Hojbjerg did two. Job done.
And Spurs fans aren’t scared about showing their love for their new signing.
When you ad Lo Celso and Ndombele either side of him, there’s no team in the Prem that can effectively press their midfield pic.twitter.com/uIL87HBiFN

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg just performed two back-to-back pirouettes in the Tottenham half. He's the one with the bandaged head but the LASK players were the ones left dizzy.
