PIERRE-EMILE HOJBJERG has forgiven Josh Dasilva for his horror tackle on Tuesday night.

The Tottenham star was left with a gruesome gash on his leg after he was clattered by the Brentford ace during the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Dasilva, 22, lost control of the ball before he lunged into Hojbjerg, 25, with his studs raised.

After the incident was checked by VAR, the Bees star was shown a straight red card.

Dasilva later took to social media to insist he never meant to hurt the Spurs midfielder.

He wrote: "Anyone that knows me, knows it was never intentional.. will learn from this."

And Hojbjerg replied with a classy message to clear the air with the former Arsenal youngster.

He said: "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 @joshdasilva_.


"Be strong & keep working hard. Best of luck to you and your team.

"Big hug, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg."

Hojbjerg was left with stud marks and blood pouring down his shin after the tackle.

Jose Mourinho hauled him off the pitch and put Japhet Tanganga on in his place.

Spurs held on to book their spot in the final of the competition with a 2-0 win.
