Serge Aurier shares gruesome clip of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg receiving treatment the day after horror tackle left him with huge gash in his shin… but Tottenham midfielder accepts Josh Dasilva’s apology and insists he is a ‘viking’

  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg suffered a gruesome injury on Tuesday night vs Brentford
  • Josh Dasilva was shown a straight red for catching Tottenham man on the shin 
  • Serge Aurier has since posted a video of Hojbjerg receiving treatment on injury
  • The Dane has made peace with Dasilva, accepting the Brentford man’s apology 

Serge Aurier has given Tottenham fans a close-up of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s horror shin injury, by posting a video on social media of his team-mate receiving treatment at Spurs’ training ground.

Hojbjerg sustained a gruesome shin injury on Tuesday night during Tottenham’s 2-0 Carabao Cup semi-final victory over Brentford following an accidental but nasty challenge from Josh Dasilva.

The tackle left the Danish midfielder with a huge gash down his shin, and after Mike Dean went to his pitchside monitor, former Arsenal youth product Dasilva was subsequently shown a straight red card.

And on Wednesday, Aurier shared a gruesome video on his Instagram story of Hojbjerg getting medical treatment on his shin.

In the social media clip, Hojbjerg can be seen wincing occasionally as a Tottenham medic wipes blood away from the gash. 

More amusingly, Aurier then puts a viking hat emoji on top of Hojbjerg’s head in reference to the Dane star’s earlier comments.

Dasilva took to Twitter following his red card on Tuesday, insisting he never meant to cause any harm, writing: ‘Anyone that knows me, knows it was never intentional.. will learn from this.’

Hojbjerg then decided to put Dasilva’s mind at ease by personally responding to the young Brentford star – insisting he knew his opponent didn’t mean it before labelling himself a ‘viking’.

The Tottenham man wrote back: ‘Of course you didn’t mean it. So don’t worry. I’m a viking and I am fine. But… You owe me a new shin pad.  

‘You have a great future ahead. Be strong & keep working hard. Best of luck to you and your team. Big hug, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.’  

While Dasilva was rightly penalised for the tackle on Tuesday, Jamie Redknapp also argued there was no malicious intent.

Redknapp told Sky Sports after the game: ‘It’s a really interesting one. Do I think it’s a red card? Yes, because he has endangered an opponent. But does he mean it? Absolutely not.

‘I think he’s got the skill and he almost tries to chop it between his legs. But then almost loses control of his body and his right leg comes out. If you stop [the replay] it on the contact, it’s horrendous.  

‘But did he mean to do it? No. Most of the players I’ve played football with, if they’re right-footed, you tackle with your right foot. He’s left-footed so he wouldn’t even need to tackle with his right foot. If you look at his [Hojbjerg] leg and it’s a right mess.

‘But I don’t believe for one second that Josh Dasilva has meant to do him but it looks really bad I get that.’

Mourinho’s men booked their place in the Carabao Cup final thanks to goals from Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min on Tuesday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

They will face either Manchester United or City in the final at Wembley on April 25 – with the date having been pushed back in the hope that some fans would be able to attend.
