In what has been a rather subdued season for Manchester United, young Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund has emerged as a beacon of hope.

Despite being sidelined due to an injury for the first month of the campaign, Hojlund’s impact since his comeback has been undeniable.

After his £64 million transfer from Atalanta, Hojlund announced his arrival with two goals for the side under Erik ten Hag.

His debut came off the bench against Arsenal at the Emirates, but it was in a surprising 3-2 loss to Turkish heavyweights Galatasaray that he truly shone, even as Manchester United’s overall performance left much to be desired.

United legend and member of the Premier League Hall of Fame, Paul Scholes, was quick to acknowledge Hojlund’s prowess on the field.

Scholes commented, “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.”

Hojlund’s brilliance isn’t just resonating with former players. Old Trafford regulars have been equally impressed, especially with his second goal against Galatasaray.

Charging from the halfway line, the young Dane exhibited supreme confidence and skill in his finish.

While United continues to grapple with form, there’s no doubt that Rasmus Hojlund has brought a refreshing spark to the squad, much to the delight of the fans.
