Rasmus Hojlund’s Secret Partner in Crime Emerges as Ten Hag Masterstroke Shakes Up Man Utd News

Rasmus Hojlund’s recent scoring streak for Manchester United has been a key factor in the team’s four consecutive victories across all competitions. The 21-year-old striker initially had a slow start under Erik ten Hag but has since found his stride, with the help of a reported consultation with former Red Devils legend Robin van Persie.

Van Persie, known for his prowess as a Premier League striker, shared his insights with Hojlund after observing the team’s training. This guidance seemed to have a positive impact as Hojlund scored in the fifth consecutive match, helping United secure a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Erik ten Hag approved Van Persie’s request to spend time at the training ground and will be looking to continue leveraging his advice for Hojlund’s development. Seeking the guidance of experienced Premier League strikers is not new for Ten Hag, as he had previously brought ex-Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy on board, who played a role in Marcus Rashford’s successful season.

Hojlund’s recent hot streak has seen him score 11 goals in all competitions, with five in the Premier League. It remains uncertain whether Van Persie will return to Old Trafford in a permanent coaching capacity after obtaining his UEFA Pro License.

With Van Persie currently working with Feyenoord, his future involvement with United is yet to be determined. The team has sought help in enhancing their attacking prowess, with legends like Dwight Yorke questioning the coaching support for Hojlund earlier in the season.

Yorke expressed concerns about the fundamental aspects of Hojlund’s game and the coaching support he was receiving, emphasizing the importance of small improvements to aid his progress.
