Manchester United’s Rasmus Hojlund, recently signed for an impressive £64 million, is set to don the famed red jersey once he overcomes a slight back injury. Expected to make his maiden appearance for the club next month, many believe that if the young Danish forward lives up to his promise, the price tag will seem a bargain.
Hojlund, who ranks as the sixth priciest acquisition in United’s history, is drawing significant attention, with fans and experts eagerly discussing the potential impact of the Danish sensation on a team in search of a prolific striker.
MUTV’s The Debate featured a segment on Hojlund’s capabilities, with former young Red Devil Danny Simpson chiming in. The former Leicester City player, who lifted the Premier League trophy in 2015/16, envisions a daunting attacking trio comprised of Hojlund, Marcus Rashford, and Antony.
In his words: “When you’ve got them three running in behind, there’s nothing worse. You just don’t like it.”
Simpson disclosed that he’d been in touch with former teammate and compatriot of Hojlund, Kasper Schmeichel.
The latter was all praise for the newcomer’s mindset, stating, “I spoke to Kasper Schmeichel, his Danish teammate, and he said the mentality for his age is absolutely unbelievable.”
Highlighting the weight and prestige associated with the Manchester United jersey, Simpson added, “It’s a lot for people to wear the Manchester United shirt, I think he’s going own it and go straight in like he’s been here before.”
He further emphasized Schmeichel’s discerning nature, noting, “He’s [Schmeichel] not someone who will say that lightly, he doesn’t give many compliments.”
