Rasmus Hojlund on Man Utd move: ‘I still need to find rhythm’

Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund has opened up about his ongoing journey to find his rhythm in his new environment. 

The 20-year-old Danish striker was initially sidelined due to a back injury but has returned to action for the Manchester club. 

The former Atalanta striker said (via The Athletic): “I’ve tried my best every time I play, and I still need to find the rhythm. 

“We have been struggling a little bit, but we are getting there now. We have had three wins in a row, so that is very positive.”

Hojlund has already netted three goals in as many Champions League appearances for the Red Devils but is yet to break his Premier League duck. 

The young star attributed this to the adjustment required to excel in the English top flight.

“For sure (still getting used to the Premier League),” he added.

“I improve every day, and my teammates are starting to see my patterns in the game as well, so it is getting better and better every day.”

However, despite the pressure and expectations that come with playing for United, Hojlund is confident in his abilities but remains aware of his youth and the room for improvement. 

“I know my worth. I know I have to perform every day because I play for Manchester United. In the end, I am only 20 years old, and I am not the finished article yet.”

Quizzed about his partnership with Marcus Rashford, Hojlund emphasised their developing connection on the pitch. 

“You can see we are trying to find each other,” he said. “We have a good connection.”

After struggling at the beginning of the season, United are on the upswing with three consecutive victories. 

They are gearing up for a high-stakes clash with rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford this Sunday. 

Hojlund’s budding partnership with Rashford provides hope for United fans as they look ahead to their match-up with the Premier League champions.
