Denmark boss provides Rasmus Højlund crucial advice, which could help Man United development



| Last Updated:


Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand has provided Manchester United striker Rasmus Højlund with some crucial advice.

Højlund, 21, has travelled to Germany for Euro 2024 after a decent first season at United. He scored 16 goals for the Old Trafford outfit.

However, it is clear that the striker needs to improve aspects of his game to reach the potential his club and country expect.

After a difficult first game for Denmark during the European Championships, his manager has explained that Højlund is doing a lot of work for the team.

He told reporters, as per Tipsbladet: “He has a lot of energy and wants to be involved, and that is one of his greatest strengths. But he makes a huge effort for the team. It is a completely different scenario if he had put it [his chance] past Oblak.

“He plays a good match and invests what he has to. We want to get Rasmus going and have him score goals, but that will come if he keeps working the way he is doing.”

However, this is not always a good thing for the team and it was noticed at United during periods last season. Sometimes, Højlund is better off keeping his energy down in moments so that he can burst into action in other actions.

Hjulmand added: “He uses a lot of energy. Maybe once in a while, he doesn’t need to drop down and be part of the game. We have many who do.

“He wants to be involved. That’s why he often drops down, where maybe sometimes he just has to stay away and keep calm when we have the ball.”
