Some Manchester United stars question teammate over interview with channel ‘built on negativity and slaughtering Man Utd players’

Rasmus Hojlund questioned by Manchester United stars over his recent interview

Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund has reportedly been questioned by teammates following his interview on a YouTube fan channel.

The Danish striker made the move to the Reds of Manchester from Atalanta for a reported £72 million, signing a five-year deal with the option of a further year at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old found it difficult to adapt to the pace of English football for a while, though he has been in top touch since he picked it up. Rasmus Hojlund scored a record-breaking seven goals in six games wearing the United jersey before picking up a muscle injury last month.

The former Atalanta striker sat down for an interview with The United Stand where he discussed life in Manchester and his form of late. However, according to a report by the United We Stand magazine (h/t Express), some of his teammates at Carrington were not impressed with his decision to take such an interview with the fan channel.

The report states that some of the players at Old Trafford spoke to the 21-year-old about his decision to speak to a channel that ‘was built on negativity and slaughtering United players’. The report also states that Rasmus Hojlund was not aware of such reputation of the channel having made the move to England only this summer.

Mark Goldbridge, who runs the YouTube channel, has since hit back at the critics for jealousy.

Writing on X, Goldbridge said: ‘Jealousy always seems to burn brightest on a Sunday lol! So, that interview took months to put together. Everyone in the club was aware, the player and others were doing media on a training day at Carrington, we were there all morning. If anyone wanted to stop it they could have’.

Speaking for Hojlund, he mustn’t get caught up in this and focus on doing what he does best – scoring goals. The Red Devils need him to be at his clinical best as they look to make a final run-in for the Champions League qualification as we approach the business end of the season.
