Man United legend Peter Schmeichel backs Rasmus Hojlund for a successful signing

The former goalkeeper spoke to club media and had his say on Hojlund.

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has admitted that the club have never had a player like Rasmus Hojlund. He was signed by the Red Devils from Atalanta for £64 million plus another £8m in add-ons.

The newly signed striker is recovering from the injury and he has to wait for his debut. He came on in the second half against Arsenal and showed good glimpses of what he can do while leading the line.

The former goalkeeper spoke to club media and had his say on Hojlund and the Dane’s prospects of succeeding at Old Trafford.

The ex-legend said, “He’s a very, very nice boy. I’ve been asked about him a lot, and the phrase I always use is that he has a lot of unfulfilled potential.”

“There isn’t a weakness in his game. There isn’t a part of his game where he can’t be absolutely excellent. A lot of that has to come from how he handles himself, and I’m absolutely sure he’ll do that well, but it’s also about how he’s being coached.”

Schmeichel continued, “This guy is everything: he’s big, strong, quick, physical, technical, tactically adept. Everything you want in a footballer, everything you want in a striker. He’s got the nose, as well, of a no.9.”

As per the 59-year-old, “He’s just got complete and utter unfulfilled potential and I’m very excited about him at United, because I don’t think we’ve ever had a player like him.”
