Jose Mourinho praises ‘amazing’ Tottenham Hotspur signings

Tottenham Hotspur have signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart this summer and manager Jose Mourinho has labeled this transfers as an ‘amazing’ piece of business by Tottenham. Hojbjerg joined in a €22m move from Southampton while Joe Hart was signed on a free transfer following his contract expiry at Burnley.

Hojbjerg made his debut for Tottneham earlier this week in Tottenham’s 3-0 friendly win over Ipswich. Mourinho has praised his club for getting a player like Hojbjerg for a limited fee. “The club found very intelligently the moment to do it,” Mourinho said on Spurs TV. “It was the last year of contract for Pierre, his club was in a difficult situation in terms of negotiation so I think Mr Levy did amazing for us getting such a good player for us.”

Mourinho has also praised his club for signing Hart, who signed a two-year deal. “I think the club did amazing in both because they are going to make our squad stronger,” Mourinho added. “To bring Joe, 75 caps for England and lost of experience, he is great protection for us to have three goalkeepers. All internationals for their country, all good goalkeepers, you can sleep well because any injuries or problems that we have, we have three good goalkeepers.”
