Manchester United and former international teammates Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund are bonding quite well
Manchester United’s unexpected start to the season has left us all puzzled, given the talent in our squad. However, Hojlund has swiftly adapted to the new system at Old Trafford and has proven to be an invaluable asset, bagging 3 goals in just 2 appearances in the Champions League.
When asked in an interview, Eriksen said:
“I think Rasmus has been a wise purchase. He’s a guy who fits into the squad, fits into the way of playing, understands the coach’s ideas, and he’s a good guy who works hard.”
“He is very mature in his approach to things. Of course, he sometimes says some things that are … youth things, but he has his head in the right place.”
“We’ve been out to eat, he’s been over at my house, and we see each other every day at the club. He doesn’t need to be put in place. I have given him my advice, and he has chosen to live close to the stadium and the training facility, so he has listened there.”
With six goals in his first six international outings for Denmark, Hojlund has certainly made a flying start. During his time with the national team, he crossed paths with Eriksen, who holds high hopes for his compatriot.
With Hojlund joining the ranks, United now boasts two Danish talents. Eriksen emphasizes the significance of this, considering the history of exceptional Danish players who have graced Old Trafford in the past. It’s a momentous achievement for their homeland.
During United’s search for a No. 9 this summer, Eriksen is likely to have been consulted having had the experience playing alongside Hojlund for Denmark. We might never get to know this officially but it often happens in football.
We can anticipate an even greater partnership between Eriksen and Hojlund in the upcoming games, a win-win for both parties that can infuse much-needed chemistry into our current struggling team, despite our abundant talent.
Hojlund has enjoyed more playing time than Eriksen this season, partly due to the latter’s occasional susceptibility to injuries, which can disrupt our midfield’s rhythm. However, both of them will be key players for United going forward.
