Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been discussing the current situation at Tottenham Hotspur, and admits the coming and going of managers has caused problems for the team.
Tottenham are looking for another new permanent manager as they approach the end of the season. The club parted ways with Antonio Conte after 16 months in charge back at the end of March.
The Italian gave a highly-critical assessment of his team after the 3-3 draw with Southampton prior to the international break, and never returned to the club.
It has also been suggested that players were frustrated at the way the manager spoke about them (Daily Mail).
Since Conte’s departure, his former assistant Cristian Stellini was put in charge, but lasted just four games. Stellini was dismissed after the humbling 6-1 defeat to Newcastle United last month.
Now, Ryan Mason is Acting Head Coach until the end of the campaign. Performances have been more spirited under the young coach, but results are still lacking, and Spurs’ season looks set to end in disappointing fashion.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Football Daily about the situation, Hojbjerg revealed the effect the managerial merry-go-round has had on the players at the club.
He said: “Of course, when you have three coaches in a very short time, there is some change, some instability.
“But again, we also know that this is a part of this world.
“That from one moment to another, in a game, in a season, there will be instability, there will be insecurity, there will be a lack of energy.”

Naturally, this much disruption in a season is going to be detrimental to the rhythm and cohesiveness of the squad.
However, the way the players have performed all season has been way below the standard we expect, and they have to do better regardless of the managerial situation.
