Tottenham Hotspur’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg may be a tough man on the pitch, but he has shown he’s a true gentleman, sending Brentford’s Josh Dasilva a touching message following his bad tackle in the half -final of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.
Spurs booked their spot in April’s centerpiece with a 2-0 win over the Bees, but the evening was almost marred by Dasilva’s late challenge, which left Hojbjerg bleeding profusely from bad cuts to his shin .
The 22-year-old Brentford man was kicked out for his challenge, but took to Twitter to apologize for his actions, writing: “Anyone who knows me knows it was never intentional… will learn from that. ” Hojbjerg saw the tweet and responded brilliantly, showing that he claims class bags on and off the pitch.
“Of course you didn’t mean it. So don’t worry. I’m a viking and I’m fine. But… you owe me a new shin pad, ”he joked.
It wasn’t long before he spoke highly of the Brentford star, praising his talent and wishing him the best for the future.
“You have a bright future ahead of you. Be strong and keep working hard. Good luck to you and your team. Big hug, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. ”
This is Twitter to be used.
Dasilva’s red card came in the 84th minute, when Spurs’ victory was almost sealed. A strike from Moussa Sissoko in the first half put Jose Mourinho’s men in charge of the draw, and Son Heung-min concluded the victory with a venomous finish in the 70th minute.
Brentford will feel tough, having had a controversial equalizer ruled out by a marginal offside decision, only for the Tottenham winner to arrive moments after that decision.
At the heart of it all was Hojbjerg once again, as the midfielder soldier continued to prove why his signing was one of the smartest deals of the whole summer.
