“It’s a bit ridiculous” – Crystal Palace defender jumps to manager’s defence after recent criticism – Sport Witness
Despite Denmark being on a good run of form in terms of victories, the manner in which some of those have taken place has left a small dark cloud of Kasper Hjulmand’s role as the national team manager.
That’s because they made a meal out of a 2-1 win over San Marino, but Crystal Palace’s Joachim Andersen isn’t exactly worried for the man who recently picked him to be a part of the squad.
A couple of the Denmark players were asked if they felt there should be a change of manager, and while some tried to dodge the question, the Eagles man, speaking to Bold, stepped up and answered it directly.
The Crystal Palace centre-back said: “I think it’s a bit ridiculous, to be completely honest, but it’s not something that I want to focus that much on. We have won the lsat four games, so that is what I’m basing it on. We have a game on Friday where we can win the group, so that’s good.”
Denmark play Slovenia on Friday at home, a game in which Joachim Andersen will almost be guaranteed to start in, before heading to Northern Ireland for their second fixture of the international break on Monday.
With already 25 caps to his name and a starting spot at Crystal Palace locked in, the 27-year-old has been in good form this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist for the Selhurst Park side in 12 Premier League games.
