Ex-Man Utd star Dwight Yorke has slammed Rasmus Hojlund, sniping that the big money signing has no strengths.

Man Utd signed Hojlund last summer from Atalanta for €75 million plus €10m in add-ons.

The 21-year-old struggled badly in the first half of the season, failing to score a single Premier League goal before Christmas.

However, Hojlund has started to pick up form recently and he now has four Premier League goals to his name, and 10 in all competitions.

Despite this improvement, Yorke is not impressed by what he is seeing from Hojlund and doesn’t believe he has any significant qualities.

What did Yorke say?

“He’s still on that borrowed time, he still needs time, but I’m glad that he’s got a couple of goals. That may settle him down,” Yorke told Sky Sports.

“Another question, what are his strengths? Because I still don’t know what his strengths are.

“Often enough, when you do your due diligence about players and your playing £75m for a player – is he fast, can he head it, can he shoot, can he dribble…?

“If you’re coming in it doesn’t matter how good you are, how young you are or how old you are, you’re going to be struggling in a team that is struggling, that is inconsistent,” Yorke explained.

“I feel for the kid and I think there will be some challenging times ahead for him.”

Hojlund exploded in the first half of 2023 as one of the most exciting young talents in European football.

He scored 15 goals in the calendar year for club and country prior to his move to Man Utd.

United will now be hoping that his first half to 2024 is as impressive as it was a year earlier.
