“He is not pointing people out” – Man Utd player “should be furious” with teammates



| Last Updated:


Rasmus Højlund has been told he should be “furious” with his Manchester United teammates after the Champions League loss against Galatasaray.

Rasmus Højlund announced himself to the Old Trafford crowd after he scored twice in Manchester United‘s 3-2 defeat against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Both of the Dane’s goals – a bullet header and a run from the halfway line – were perfect examples of his versatility in front of goal, and showed what a threat he could be under Erik ten Hag.

The rest of the side, however, let his goals down by making sloppy errors that saw the club concede three goals and sit rock bottom of their Champions League group with two of the six games played.

Former United defender Paul Parker has rightly praised Højlund for his performance but also has explained that he feels the striker should be “furious” with his teammates for letting his goals down.

“Højlund played really well against Galatasaray but he has been doing that the entire time at Manchester United,” Parker told SpilXperten. “Of course, he hasn’t scored in the Premier League yet but that’s a matter of time.

“I think he is an amazing player and he certainly can develop into being a fantastic centre-forward for this club.

“The problem for him is the way he is getting utilised. He was utilised better against Galatasaray but in general, he needs more help from his teammates.

“He will still improve as a player but I really believe that he can achieve great things, especially if he gets some better players around him.

“Man United should have more players with his attitude around him. To be perfectly honest, I would understand if he was looking at his teammates yesterday and just shaking his head.”

Parker explained that the United players let Højlund down, as he had done his job as a centre-forward, but they did not do theirs.

“They let him down and they didn’t do their job. They never allowed him to enjoy scoring his goals. He should be furious.

“But what I really like about him is that he is not pointing people out. Ronaldo would have pointed fingers saying that they let him down. I don’t think that’s in Højlund’s nature, to be honest, and he has been doing things the right way from the start of his time at Man United.”
