"We were calling him "Zidane" at half-time!": Jose Mourinho jokes about player's action

Jose Mourinho jokingly gave Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg the nickname 'Zidane' after he performed a risky double-pirouette on the edge of his own box in Tottenham's 3-0 win over LASK in the Europa League. The Spurs boss revealed he was laughing about the passage of play with his staff at the interval. "We were having a laugh at half-time and we were all calling him Zidane. Very nice but don't do it again Pierre!" Mourinho said in his post-match press conference. Hojbjerg has made a brilliant start to life at Spurs since his summer move from Southampton and is looking like a real bargain at £15million. He was influential in Spurs' opening Europa League group-stage game against LASK.
