“I must be honest” spur star open up he want to be part of Fulham squad,he can’t continue with lack of game time

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has admitted that he does not knock on Ange Postecoglou’s door demanding to know why he is not starting, insisting that all he can do is to be ready to perform when called upon.

Even though Hojbjerg has fallen down the pecking order this season in light of the impressive start that Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma have made, Postecoglouhas still demonstrated that he trusts the Dane.

The Australian has brought the 28-year-old on as a substitute in seven of the eight Premier League matches so far this season (Transfermarkt), and with Bissouma now suspended for the clash against Fulham on Monday, the former Southampton man is expected to come into the starting eleven.

Meanwhile, various sources have continued to indicate over recent weeks that Hojbjerg is expected to push for a move when the transfer window opens in January (Alasdair Gold – Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham podcast).

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg always remains professional

The midfielder has now remarked that he is continuing to give his all and will look to impress Postecoglou in the opportunities that he gets.

When asked if he has spoken to the Spurs boss about his lack of game time, Hojbjerg told Ekstrabladet: “I don’t have that dialogue, I must be honest.

“My approach to it is to keep the focus on the things I can do something about. I must be ready to help the team if I am called upon. So I make sure to train well and keep my nose on track.

“We play a new kind of football than we did last year, and we have got a new coaching team. Things work really well. We are in a very good position in the league, even though it is only a short time into the season, and we are making really good progress.

“So it’s about following along. I haven’t played as much as I’m used to, but it’s also something you take with you and have to accept and learn from.

“When I played a little more, I didn’t need someone coming every day to pat me on the back or point fingers at me. I don’t need someone to guide me every day.

“So it doesn’t bother me that much. It’s simple from my side. I try to make myself relevant, but I’m not the one who sets the team, so I can only do my part to make it difficult for the coach.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Hojbjerg is the ultimate professional and he will undoubtedly give his all for the shirt until his final day at the club. While Bissouma will be a big miss against Fulham, I am intrigued to see how well the Dane does as we know that he is a fighter.
