Coach Erik Ten Hag affirmed that he is not at all concerned about the fact that Rasmus Hojlund has not yet scored in the Premier League, and also explained the reason why he often withdraws this striker from the field in the second half.
The Dutch strategist shared:
“It’s not something to worry about (Rasmus Hojlund has not been able to score in the Premier League yet). He is still shooting for Denmark, still scoring for us in the Champions League, so Hojlund will also score for us in the Premier League. I have no doubt about that. Today, there were 2 or 3 times Hojlund chose a very good position. The time will come when he scores.”
“You see Hojlund playing regularly, but we also have to manage his minutes. There will be many matches coming up, right now we are only in October. We need everyone Players contribute to the team, and everyone needs to stay physically fit, Hojlund too.”
“In addition, we wanted to do something with the substitutes to bring new energy to the team, and also the tactical aspect.”
