Pierre Emile Hojbjerg has admitted that there is genuine belief running through the Tottenham Hotspur squad that the club can win major honours this season.

The midfielder has settled in extremely well since his summer move from Southampton and seems to have won over Spurs fans already with his tenacious displays.

Hojbjerg has shown already that he is a leader on the pitch, constantly communicating with his teammates and encouraging them throughout the ninety minutes.

The Danish international admitted that Jose Mourinho was instrumental in convincing him to come to North London and revealed that he is enjoying working with the Tottenham boss.

He told Danish website BT: “It’s great to train under José Mourinho. He is a great trainer and he has a great personality. You can learn a lot from him, and he’s incredibly hungry and motivated to keep learning, and that’s really cool.

“He’s himself. He is a great man and a great coach and he is a great motivation to keep doing his best for the club and for the team. Each coach has their own view on some small details, and that view he shares. I absorb, and I am motivated to keep taking several good steps.

“I could feel that he was interested in getting me to Tottenham. I talked to him about ideas in relation to changing clubs, and it seemed like a natural change.”

The 25-year-old claimed that the Lilywhites fully deserved their 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United earlier this month and admitted that the dressing room was in high spirits following the match.

The midfielder also revealed that the players fully believe that they can win major honours this season.

Hojbjerg added: “It was fully deserved, even if it is not a result that happens every day in a historic stadium. So it was really cool and there was a good mood in the locker room afterwards. There were hugs and high fives all around.

“We are going for winning titles, and I think Tottenham is a great club that deserves to win something. So it could be a really exciting season.

“It’s different than being in Southampton, although we would also like to win every game there. There is another pressure and some other expectations in Tottenham.”
