Sweden legend, Henrik Larsson has come out to give his verdict on Rasmus Hojlund’s best quality. This is coming as MUFC’s marquee signing struggles to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Hojlund is a striker with speed who is willing to beyond the opponents’ backline to wreak havoc during games, but it was always going to take some time for him to settle in.
Larsson added that the youngster has a presence about him and he could be the MUFC’s main striker for years to come.
His words, “I liked what I saw. He is a striker with some speed. He was willing to go beyond the opponents’ back four or back three, however, you want to see it. It’s early to say, but he looks interesting because physically, there is a presence about him. It’s going to take some time before he settles in. He’s new to the club and getting used to the other players. But hopefully, for United, he can be a good striker.”
Manchester United Football Club, commonly referred to as Man United or simply United, is a professional football club based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. The club competes in the Premier League, the top division in the English football league system.
Nicknamed the Red Devils, they were founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, but changed their name to Manchester United in 1902. After a spell playing in Clayton, Manchester, the club moved to their current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910.
Alex Ferguson and his assistant Archie Knox arrived from Aberdeen on the day of Atkinson’s dismissal, and guided the club to an 11th-place finish in the league. Despite a second-place finish in 1987–88, the club was back in 11th place the following season. Reportedly on the verge of being dismissed, Ferguson’s job was saved by victory over Crystal Palace in the 1990 FA Cup final.
The following season, Manchester United claimed their first UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. That triumph allowed the club to compete in the European Super Cup for the first time, where United beat European Cup holders Red Star Belgrade 1–0 at Old Trafford. The club appeared in two consecutive League Cup finals in 1991 and 1992, beating Nottingham Forest 1–0 in the second to win that competition for the first time as well.
