Rasmus Højlund (20, Man Utd) has been criticized by a senior after scoring multiple goals.

"Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke says Rasmus Højlund needs to improve," the BBC reported on Sept. 9.

Manchester United lost 3-4 against FC Copenhagen in the fourth leg of their UEFA Champions League Group A match of the 2023-2024 season at Farken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Monday.

United jumped out to a quick lead through Rasmus Hojlund in the third minute of the first half and took the lead in the 28th minute when Hojlund rattled the net again.

Copenhagen weren't going to go down without a fight. Shortly after Marcus Rashford was sent off in the 42nd minute for a rough challenge, Mohamed Elionusi pulled one back in the 45th minute, before Diogo Goncalves scored from the penalty spot in first-half stoppage time to level the score at 2-2.

United regained the lead 24 minutes into the second half through a Bruno Fernandez penalty, but conceded back-to-back goals in the 38th and 42nd minutes to fall 3-4.

Hui Lun, who started as a frontline striker, had an outstanding performance. Playing until he was subbed off in the 39th minute for Mason Mount, Hoi Lun made his presence felt with three shots on goal and three touches in the box.

However, 'The Great One' York was not satisfied.

Yorke, who played for United from 1998-1999 to 2001-2002, anchored United's frontline alongside partner Andy Cole, scoring 66 goals and providing 32 assists in 152 official games.

According to the report, Yorke said: "A striker is always judged by the number of goals he scores. "A striker is always judged by the number of goals he scores, so this was fantastic for him, and teams always need strikers who can score 20 to 25 goals.

York concluded: "Hoi Lun is still struggling in the Premier League. He might need more games. The Premier League is different to the Champions League group stages, which are more tactical and can be played at a slightly slower tempo."

He added: "Huilun has been doing really well in the Champions League. 온라인카지노 But he's always going to struggle in games where his teammates don't create something for him," he said, noting that he doesn't have the ability to do it alone.

Speaking to TNT Sports after the match, Huilun said: "We started the game really well. We controlled the game. I think we played pretty well, except for the result."

"We switched off in the middle of the game. This must have given the Copenhagen players the belief that they could do it. The Copenhagen home crowd helped the team and the environment gave them a big boost. We were a little bit caught off guard. We didn't expect to play with one man down," he said.

"We were pretty good at the start of the second half, too. We were calm and tried to change the game. We tried to push forward again, but it's a pity that we don't have the goals to prove it."
