Tottenham ace Hojbjerg left with blood pouring down face after nasty clash – but ‘warrior’ refuses to come off injured

PIERRE-EMILE HOJBJERG was left with blood pouring from his face after a nasty collision against LASK in the Europa League.

The combative Spurs midfielder is never shy to put himself about on the pitch.

And he was left with a cut above his eye after clashing heads with an opposition player.

Hojbjerg, 25, shrugged it off in trademark style, however, standing tall despite the streaming cut.

And fans online were absolutely loving his 'hard man' status.

One wrote: "jfc Højbjerg is a warrior playing like this losing blood".

While another added: "Pierre-Emile Højbjerg just is that guy isn’t he.. and that’s why I love him. Absolute brute."
