Man Utd coach Benni McCarthy called out as Hojlund ‘hasn’t got anybody’ | Football | Sport

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has questioned the Red Devils’ forward coach Benni McCarthy for failing to help Rasmus Hojlund settle in England. The £72million summer signing took over four months to claim his first Premier League goal, with Erik ten Hag’s entire frontline struggling in the first half of the season.

“It’s little things. When I look at strikers, what I learned as a striker, is how to come off at angles rather than come straight onto the ball. He’s doing the fundamental things wrong. But he hasn’t got anybody there.

“I’m not sure what Benny McCarthy as the striker’s coach is doing with him to try and help him to progress, those movements, and how to come off of defenders from an angle rather than straight on.

“It’s the little things that will help him improve. But who is he learning from? The other Antony, he’s struggling on the other side. Bruno (Fernandes) has been inconsistent at times, and not as impactful as he was earlier. So there’s a lot of things.”
