Video: ‘Pierre’s a big boy’ – Eric Dier reacts to red card challenge and Spurs victory
Tottenham Hotspur centre-back, Eric Dier reacted to both the victory over Brentford and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s injury in his post-match interview last night.
Spurs saw out a comfortable 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Moussa Sissoko and Heung-min Son, as well as a solid defensive display from Dier and co.
However, the game ended on a sour note when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was taken off with a blood shin after a red card challenge from Brentford’s Josh Dasilva.
Despite the studs-up challenge, Eric Dier claimed that Pierre was a big boy and was confident that he would be okay.
"They deserve a lot of credit. It is not a surprise they got this far"
