Rasmus Hojlund sends message to Copenhagen brothers after Youth League goal vs Man United



| Last Updated:


Rasmus Hojlund scored twice during Manchester United’s defeat against Copenhagen but his younger brother Emil scored on the same day too.

During the UEFA Youth League game between the two sides earlier in the afternoon, before the Champions League clash, Ramsus’ 18-year-old brother Emil scored from the penalty spot as his side drew 2-2 against United’s youngsters.

United’s brother also enjoyed success in front of goal but his brace was not enough after the wheels fell off courtesy of the red card to Marcus Rashford.

Emil’s twin brother Oscar was involved in the first-team squad against their older brother but did not end up getting onto the pitch. He did, however, come on and cause havoc in the latter minutes at Old Trafford last month.

The Hojlund brothers are well on their way to becoming successes in the game and their family background is vital to their development.

“I think you’ve got to work hard,” Rasmus explained whilst speaking to club media this week.

“My parents have always been very honest with us, telling us that if you want to reach the top, you’ve got to work, and telling us if we didn’t put in the work or if we didn’t perform enough on the pitch and even on how much and where we had to develop our game.”

Hojlund was signed at United for a staggering £72 million package and whilst he is the joint-top scorer in the Champions League with five goals, the striker is yet to break his duck in the Premier League.

He recognises the ability and success that he’s had thus far but stresses that the work is not done yet, and attributes the same message to his younger brothers.

“So it was always about improving and being better and trying to reach this kind of level. And it has worked quite well so far. But yeah, we still have a long way to go,” he added.

“They’re only 18 and, for me, I know I play in probably the best club in the world but in my career, I have so much more to achieve.

“So I just want to see how far I can go and try to achieve as much as possible.”
