Rasmus Hojlund adds insult to injury after Atalanta’s victory over Liverpool

Rasmus Hojlund, a Manchester United forward, has celebrated Atalanta’s unexpected 3-0 win over Liverpool in the Europa League. The victory dealt a blow to Liverpool’s chances at winning a final European trophy before Jurgen Klopp’s departure this summer. Hojlund, who earned his move to United after scoring 16 goals for Atalanta, marked the victory on social media by sharing Atalanta’s Instagram story and adding the caption “Mola Mia” with a lion emoji. This phrase roughly translates to ‘never give up’ or ‘stay strong’ in Bergamese.

Hojlund has had a decent first season at United, scoring 13 goals, with seven coming in the Premier League. Klopp conceded that Liverpool’s defeat at Anfield, their first in 14 months, was a low point in the club’s season. He acknowledged the challenges ahead, with Liverpool set to face Bergamo in the hopes of staging a comeback. However, their chances seem slim given the grueling Premier League title run-in.

Klopp described the match as “a really bad game” and emphasized the need to regroup for the upcoming game against Crystal Palace. Despite the setback, Liverpool remains second in the Premier League, level on 71 points with leaders Arsenal. Overall, Rasmus Hojlund’s celebration of Atalanta’s victory has further highlighted the challenges Liverpool faces, while Klopp and the team aim to bounce back from the defeat and secure success in the remaining matches.
