Manchester United’s forward Rasmus Hojlund has emerged as a bright spot for the Red Devils, despite missing the first month of the campaign due to injury.
This Danish forward, who arrived at the club from Atalanta for a hefty £64 million, has made quite an impact, scoring two goals for Erik ten Hag’s squad since his debut as a substitute against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
In Manchester United’s recent clash against Galatasaray, Rasmus Hojlund found the back of the net, even in the midst of another lackluster performance that saw the Red Devils suffer a stunning 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Turkish side.
Amid a rather lackluster season so far for Ten Hag’s side, the 20-year-old has shone brightly.
Hojlund’s impressive display even garnered praise from former United star Paul Scholes after the match. Scholes remarked, “He started the game really well. He is the type of forward who thrives off crosses across the box, and he took it really well. I loved his second goal too, there’s a bit of Ruud Van Nistelrooy in him.”
Indeed, the Danish forward’s impact has been remarkable. His second goal showcased his composure and confidence as he sprinted through from the halfway line. While the team around him may be struggling with confidence, this young forward has become a source of excitement for the United fanbase.
Although Manchester United appears to be in disarray after a dismal start to the season, Rasmus Hojlund is shouldering the burden and emerging as the sole beacon of hope in what has been an alarming and concerning downturn compared to last season’s strong performances under Ten Hag.
