Recently, the name Rasmus Hojlund has attracted great attention from the media, experts and fans. Many sources from the foggy country confirmed that Man United had negotiated and reached a personal agreement with the Danish striker.
In the 2022/2023 season, Hojlund played impressively in the Atalanta shirt. The 20-year-old star has 9 goals and 2 assists. Will Hojlund really become the perfect piece in the Man United attack?
In terms of playing style, Hojlund is compared to Erling Haaland by many people. Sharing about this, the 20-year-old morning star said:
“I can spot similarities. Haaland owns good speed. I am also agile. He’s left-footed. I’m also left-footed. He has muscle strength, I am also strong.”
The scenario Hojlund versus Haaland in the Manchester derby next season is entirely possible. Summer 2022, Hojlund docks at Atalanta from Sturm Graz. Since then, the Danish striker has developed rapidly.
Stum Graz sporting director Andreas Schicker told Sky Sports: “Our idea is to build and help young players develop alongside experienced stars. That’s the recipe for success.”
“We help young players get ready to take the next leap. The team achieved success on the pitch, and at the same time profited from the sale of players. Hojlund became a prime example of that pattern.”
“He joined the team, played brilliantly, helped us achieve; make a name for yourself and join a bigger club in a bigger league. The mental strength of Hojlund is impressive, especially for a player at the age of 18.”
Commenting on Hojlund’s speed and sprints, Stum Graz head coach Christian Ilzer said: “The qualities he has add wonderfully to the team. Speed, physical strength, he also works hard with the ball…”.
The ability to move without the ball, impressive speed turns Hojlund into a constant threat to the opponent’s goal. Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was surprised about the student.
Statistics in Serie A 2022/2023 prove that Hojlund is increasingly improving himself. The scoring rate from the 20-year-old tomorrow’s counter-attacks is 0.44 goals/90 minutes; hit rate reached 1.37; The number of touches in the opponent’s penalty area reached 6.92.
Man United emerges as an ideal destination, promising to help Hojlund elevate his career and bring his name to the world football stage.
“I believe in his ability. Hojlund has a bright future ahead of him, able to play at the highest level in Europe. His skill set, physical prowess, pace, mindset and personality make Hojlund the perfect number nine,” said Andreas Schicker.
The big limitation of Hojlund is that the ability to fight is not good, the finishing skill is not sharp enough. Under the leadership of Ten Hag, the Danish striker will improve gradually over time.
Hojlund promises to bring Erik ten Hag the solution to the problem of public goods. Anthony Martial will have an additional active competitive factor. If the French striker does not improve himself, he will be removed from the development plan of Man United.
