Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund has picked his dream five-a-side team made up of Manchester United legends.
The 21-year-old Hojlund joined Manchester United from Atalanta in a £72 million deal last summer. Hojlund had to wait until December 23 against Aston Villa before scoring his first Premier League goal. He now has scored 10 goals in all competitions, including five goals in the Champions League.
With his goal against West Ham on Sunday, Hojlund has become the youngest player in United history to score in four successive Premier League games.
In an interview with The United Stand, Hojlund named Cristiano Ronaldo as his biggest idol when growing up.
“It has to be Cristiano. [Wayne] Rooney and [Carlos] Tevez as well, but Cristiano was probably the guy. I remember supporting him and following him at United, then watching him at the period when he was at Real Madrid and Juventus, then back again as well. He’s always been my idol.”
Hojlund also was asked to pick his dream five-a-side team made up of Manchester United legends.
“I need to put Peter [Schmeichel] in goal. Peter because… Peter is Peter, he’s Danish. Peter won everything here and is a legend but he’s also a legend in Denmark because he won the Euros, so he has to be there. I need to put Rio [Ferdinand] in there because he’s very memorable to me. I would love to put [Nemanja] Vidic there but I can only have one defender. I want to put Ryan Giggs in there, Paul Scholes and Cristiano. You still get a balanced midfield and then you can just leave him [Ronaldo] up front.”
