Man Utd news: Rasmus Hojlund’s controversial interview leads to police investigation | Football | Sport

Greater Manchester Police are investigating death threats made to The United Stand presenter Mark Goldbridge after his controversial interview with Manchester United star Rasmus Hojlund, whose appearance on the fan-led YouTube channel is believed to have gone down badly with team-mates.

The United Stand has built up millions of followers on X and YouTube since it was launched by Goldbridge 10 years ago. It is unpopular in certain circles, however, due to the extent of criticism directed towards Red Devils players.

Hojlund’s interview on the channel last month is therefore believed to have upset some members of the United dressing room, although The Daily Mail claim it has mostly led to players poking fun at the Dane rather than serious animosity.

Now, the interview has reportedly sparked death threats, with Goldbridge labelled a ‘dead man walking’ and warned he could face harm next time he makes an appearance at Old Trafford.

Other members of The United Stand staff were also called out on social media, where the exact location of the channel’s studio was shared. Authorities were notified of the development on Tuesday.

A statement from Greater Manchester Police read: “Officers have spoken with the victim and relevant information has been passed over to the police. Enquiries are ongoing at this stage.”

Hojlund made a slow start to life at United after completing an eye-watering £72million move from Atalanta last summer. The 21-year-old has been a revelation since getting off the mark in the Premier League, however, with goals in each of his last five appearances.

United boss Erik ten Hag is expected to bring the striker, who has missed the last four games with a muscle injury, back into the fold in Sunday’s high-stakes FA Cup quarter-final against bitter rivals Liverpool.
