Rasmus Hoylund’s superb brace against Galatasaray should have been cause for celebration. Despite this, former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes the young Dane has every right to be angry at his teammates’ lackluster defending. Although Hoylund has made an impressive start to his United career, scoring three goals in his first two Champions League games, the team’s defensive holes have led to two successive defeats, including the latest at Old Trafford. Trafford lost 3-2 to Galatasaray.
Parker compared Hoylund to Cristiano Ronaldo while praising the £72million signing of Erik ten Hag. He highlighted his team’s defensive errors as overshadowing Hoylund’s dreams of a European debut for the club.
Parker commented: “They let him down and didn’t do his job. They never let him enjoy scoring goals. “He should be angry. ” However, unlike Ronaldo, he praised Hoylund for not pointing fingers and always showing the right attitude.
Parker praised Hoylund as an “amazing player” with the potential to develop further, but also expressed confidence that the young striker would soon be scoring goals in the Premier League. Parker stressed that his teammates need to provide better service to Hoylund to maintain his goal-scoring form.
Parker stressed that Hoylund already has a good working relationship with Marcus Rashford, which he expects will improve over time. Bruno Fernandes is known for creating scoring chances and an overall improvement in the team’s performance will be crucial to maximizing Hoylund’s impact at United. Despite the challenges Hoylund has faced since his arrival, there is optimism that with the right support and improvement throughout the squad, he can achieve great things in the future.
