Rasmus Hojlund hilariously refers to Christian Eriksen as 'Agent Christian' in new interview

Rasmus Hojlund hilariously referred to Christian Eriksen as 'Agent Christian' following his big-money transfer to Manchester United.

In a new interview following his move to Man United, the 20-year-old spoke about the role Eriksen had on his switch from Atalanta.

"It's good that Christian Eriksen is here. He took me in," he told the Danish outlet. "He called himself 'Agent Christian' over the summer."

He added: "It's huge to play for the club I dreamed of when I was very young."

Hojlund was unveiled as a Man United player in the club's pre-season friendly against Lens last Saturday. He watched on from the stands as his new side beat the French outfit 3-1, with Marcus Rashford, Antony and Casemiro all getting on the score-sheet.

The budding forward, who joined the Old Trafford club in a transfer worth up to £72 million, is set to miss the first couple of games of the new season as he carries a slight injury.

However, he could make his Man United debut against Nottingham Forest at the end of the month.

Speaking about his new talent, Erik ten Hag said: "He is really a front man, very direct to the goal. A very good presser, a physical presence and I think in the balance of this squad we needed that.

"Alongside Rashford, [he is] another player who is direct and can score goals and that is all in his mind – he wants to score goals."

The Dutchman added: "I think he has such a huge potential and now it is up first to him to explore that and we will support him - all the coaches.

"I’m sure the whole team was waiting for a type like him and they will integrate and in the dressing room or on the pitch they will help him.

"But as I said, finally the player - he has to prove it."
