“Does it daily…” – Rasmus Højlund’s best attribute explained by national team coach



| Last Updated:


Denmark assistant coach Morten Wieghorst has explained the best attribute that “fantastic” Rasmus Højlund has at Manchester United.

Rasmus Højlund has exploded onto the scene at Manchester United in 2024, having scored in six straight Premier League games, becoming the youngest player in history to achieve such a feat.

Højlund has really started to justify the £72 million that Erik ten Hag paid for the player in the summer of 2023, becoming a vital part of United’s attack and a key figure in the recent upturn of form.

Denmark assistant coach Morten Wieghorst has spoken about Højlund and his persistence, explaining that the 21-year-old’s “amazing mentality” is a brilliant attribute that will propel him.

It’s been fantastic to witness. For the team, it has been a tough time, but Rasmus has persisted,” he told Danish magazine Tipsbladet. “Firstly, he has an amazing mentality – that’s also what is being said over there. He has kept his composure no matter what has been said or written.

“We have to remember that he is still young and playing for a huge club. What he is doing at the moment is great primarily for Rasmus himself but also for Manchester United and, ultimately, for the Danish national team. It’s really good. Of course, we hope he continues, and I have no doubt about it.

“There are huge expectations in a club like United. Again, I have to emphasize that Rasmus is very young, but he has kept his composure and focused on what he can control. That’s what he does daily on the training ground and what he certainly does and has done on the pitch for United. Ultimately, that’s the most important thing for a professional footballer in his position.

“He has such strong belief in himself and his teammates, so he doesn’t let himself be affected by what is said and written.”

Unfortunately, United confirmed on Friday afternoon that Højlund has suffered a minor muscle injury and will be out for two or three weeks at a crucial time for the Reds.

He will miss the fixtures against Fulham (H), Nottingham Forest (A, FA Cup), and Manchester City (A), while the striker may also be absent for Everton (H), and Sheffield United (H) if his injury does not heal on schedule.
