Many have questioned Manchester United’s decision not to pursue Harry Kane vigorously last summer, opting for a long-term approach by signing Rasmus Hojlund.
Despite the injuries affecting the team, especially in creating chances for a striker, the recent performances of Hojlund suggest that the club’s focus on the future is beginning to pay off.
The 20-year-old Danish striker, Rasmus Hojlund, has caught the attention of former Southampton manager Ruben Selles, who worked with him at FC Copenhagen.
Speaking on the Training Ground Guru podcast, Selles praised Hojlund, predicting that he would soon be regarded as one of the best strikers globally.
Selles acknowledged that Hojlund is undergoing a learning process and emphasized that the scrutiny he faces will only make him a better and stronger player.
Despite the pressure and expectations, Hojlund has already shown brilliance in various competitions and is on the path to becoming an outstanding player.
Hojlund’s recent performances, including two goals and one assist in the last two Premier League games, indicate his growing confidence.
Selles believes that with time, Hojlund will connect with the fans and reach his full potential, describing him as a mentality monster with a supportive family and a strong environment.
While Hojlund faces unfair scrutiny due to being thrust into the lead striker role at a young age, his mentality and development suggest that he has the tools to succeed.
Selles highlighted Hojlund’s exceptional mental strength, making him a rare talent with the potential to become a key figure for Manchester United.
