Man Utd striker Rasmus Hojlund drops exciting injury update ahead of Tottenham clash

Manchester United’s new signing, Rasmus Hojlund has dropped a huge clue with his latest Instagram post.

The 20-year-old completed his big-money move from Serie A side Atalanta to United earlier in the month, and his debut could be on the horizon.

After signing for the club, manager Erik ten Hag said Hojlund was not ready to make his debut just yet.

He said: “As we said previously, he [Rasmus Hojlund] had a small issue. He's not on the levels where our players are in this moment so we have to train him.

“The prognosis [is] difficult always to say. We are confident and we are positive. First of all we have chosen a striker and we are really happy with our choice.”

However, ahead of their Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, Hojlund himself has taken to Instagram to tease fans.

He posted a picture of himself in training, with a captain that reads: “Soon”, along with the devil emoji.

It has been reported that Hojlund will cost United a fee of £72 million.

After signing for the club, the Danish international said: “I think winning is the most important. I always go onto the pitch with the mentality of winning and of course, my role is to score goals and help with what the manager wants.

“So if that's hold-up play, if that's scoring goals, if that's pressing, these are some things, I want to do all of them.”

He added: “[I’m] physical, passionate, and let's go with fast.

“In Atalanta, we played a lot off the sides as well. As a wide striker, you would say [it’s about] build-up play, hold-up play but, when I'm with the national team, I'm more of the target nine, an inside-the-box striker.

“So it's definitely two different kind of roles that I've had before so I hope that I can fit into the system.”
