Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed the performance of Rasmus Hojlund as the striker scored a brace in our 3-2 home defeat against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Speaking at half-time on TNT Sports, Rio Ferdinand raved about the Dane’s quality and believes he could be the real deal.
He said: “I love Hojlund’s desire to get in there, fantastic to get on the end of that.”
But Ferdinand wasn’t the only ex-player praising the Danish striker after his goals.
Speaking on MUTV during the game, former red Dion Dublin was also full of praise for Hojlund.
“Like a centre-forward should, he gets in a good position then ‘bam’. It’s a really difficult header.
“When it’s coming at pace you’ve got to be careful how you head it. Brilliant finish.”
