At the Allianz Arena, in Manchester United’s loss to Bayern Munich, Rasmus Hojlund scored his first goal for the team.
Great attackers require goals, and it’s critical for strikers to get off to a quick start at new clubs. Many Manchester United supporters will remember when a young Diego Forlan turned into a joke since it took him an unbelievable 27 games to get his first goal for the team.
Nobody wanted new recruit Rasmus Hojlund to have to undergo a similar wait after his first wait for his first United goal damaged his confidence. However, his career after United demonstrated what a fantastic player he was.
Fortunately, Hojlund is off to a good start. In just his third club game, he has a goal. This time, officially scoring in a 4-3 loss to Bayern.
first goal by Rasmus Hojlund
Early in the second half, Rasmus Hojlund gave Manchester United a 2-1 lead against Bayern with his first goal for the club.
Bayern essentially held off United’s comeback as United ultimately lost 4-3.
Rasmus Hojlund’s goal was applauded by MUTV pundit Dion Dublin, and the former striker claimed the goal will mean a lot to him.
When questioned about the performance of the Dane, Dublin responded, “I believe he did alright you know, he worked extremely hard. Even if the goal he scored wasn’t particularly memorable, center-forwards need to score goals like that.
“Even though United lost the match away at Bayern in the Champions League, that will mean a lot to him.
“That confidence will take him a long way, and the players around him will be really happy,” said the player who scored for his new team in the Champions League.
Hojlund’s first of many goals
This Saturday, when Manchester United hosts Burnley at Turf Moor, Rasmus Hojlund will now try to score a Premier League goal.
On his debut start, he scored against Brighton over the weekend, but it was overturned because Marcus Rashford had taken the ball out of play.
He appears to have a strong chance of being an important player for Manchester United this year. You can score against anyone if you can do it at Bayern in the Champions League on the road.
