Souness: Christian Eriksen’s comments about Rasmus Hojlund prior to joining Man Utd were a “tell-tale sign”

The pressure is mounting on Rasmus Hojlund as he struggles to find his footing at Manchester United, and Graeme Souness believes that Christian Eriksen’s comments about the forward were a warning sign. Eriksen, who knows Hojlund well from their time playing for Denmark, labeled him as “aggressive” when he made the move to Old Trafford. Now, with Hojlund still yet to score a Premier League goal after 12 appearances, Souness has raised questions about the quality of the £72million signing. As the pressure continues to mount on Hojlund and Manchester United as a whole, the scrutiny on the young attacker is only intensifying.

Graeme Souness Warns Manchester United Fans About Rasmus Hojlund’s Performance

In a recent analysis, Graeme Souness highlighted Christian Eriksen’s comments about Rasmus Hojlund as a warning sign before the forward made his Manchester United debut. Eriksen, who plays alongside Hojlund at Old Trafford, described him as ‘aggressive’ and ‘front-foot’, but Souness believes these remarks were not complimentary enough, suggesting that they may have hinted at Hojlund’s quality as a player.

Hojlund, who was signed by Erik ten Hag for £72 million in the summer, has yet to score a Premier League goal for Man Utd, despite scoring five times in six Champions League games. Souness raised concerns about Hojlund’s performance, especially since the team has been struggling in the Premier League, having lost seven of their opening 16 games.

Furthermore, Hojlund’s lack of goals since joining Man Utd has coincided with the team’s difficult period, including exits from the Carabao Cup and Champions League. With just one win in their last five matches in all competitions, the Red Devils face a tough challenge as they prepare to take on Liverpool on Sunday.
