There is a big change in Tottenham’s new season lineup, that is, Hoibel has become the main iron. With his outstanding defensive ability, he is becoming the core midfielder on the Spurs field. Mourinho is also full of praise for his love.
Against Linz, Hoibel made his first appearance. He made an extraordinary move of consecutive Marseille rounds in the game. Mourinho ridiculed him after the game.
After the game, the reporter asked Mourinho: "What do you think of Hoibel? Is he becoming the kind of leader who serves you on the court?"
Mourinho replied: "Yes (laughs), we all teased him at halftime because we called him'Zinedine', and then we all said:'Well, Hoibel, relax , Don’t keep doing Marseille rounds, don’t try again, it’s not you.’”
"But he is a great player and a player that our team needs. That's why we let him start. To be honest, it's also because we respect Linz. We watched the game they destroyed Portuguese sports. You may think they are not so strong this time, but this is just why we take it seriously."
"Pierre is a player and leader who plays. He is the kind of captain who doesn't wear an armband. He doesn't need a captain's armband to show himself. He is brave and I am very happy for him."
