Rasmus Højlund is unlikely to be at his best for some time.
“He will not be able to play for Manchester United for at least two months as details of his injury emerge,” the Mirror reported on Sept. 9.
Multiple British media outlets reported that when he joined United, an MRI scan revealed a stress fracture. “Typically, a stress fracture takes two to three months to fully recover from the last game played,” said the Mirror. The good news for United is that Hooper hasn’t played since mid-June.”
United have finally found their new striker. United had an impressive run of results last season. The Red Devils finished third in the English Premier League (EPL) and qualified for the UEFA Champions League (UCL). They also won the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup). It’s been a long time since the 2016-17 season.
Now, in Van Gaal’s second year at the helm, the Red Devils are aiming for even greater heights. To do so, they’re looking to strengthen their squad. They already have the likes of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, and Raphael Varane, but they’re looking for new talent.
They’ve already brought in players who have proven themselves. Mason Mount, formerly of Chelsea, has donned a United shirt. Mount is a resource who can play in both the second and third positions. The Red Devils have given him the number 7 shirt, a sign of their expectations. Also, Andre Onana, a former student of Van Gaal’s at Ajax, has taken the place of David de Gea, who has been in goal for over a decade.
Strengthening up front was the next priority. United had a lot of problems in the striker position last season. At the start of the season, there were no major problems. They had Cristiano Ronaldo, Anthony Martial, and, depending on the situation, Rashford, who could also play up front, which was more than enough for a long season.
But something changed during the season. Ronaldo, who had been feuding with Van Gaal since the beginning of the season, left the team. “United hasn’t improved since Sir Alex Ferguson left,” he said at the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Van Gaal doesn’t respect me, so neither do I,” he said in a bombshell statement.
Eventually, United and Ronaldo terminated their contract by mutual consent. 스포츠토토 United couldn’t go through the season with just one injury-prone Marcial. That’s why they brought in Butt Verhoeven on loan in the January transfer window. The plan was to put out the fire first and then make a permanent signing at the end of the season.
Berhorst’s performances weren’t bad, as he was active every game and provided a lot of forward pressure. However, he was not a reliable goal scorer. He played 17 games in the English Premier League (EPL) and didn’t score a single goal. In the end, Berhorst returned to his original club at the end of the season on loan.
