The hope is that Hojlund will prove to be an answer to United’s long-standing issues in the No.9 department, although he has been handed the No.11 jersey once worn by club legend Ryan Giggs. His arrival has generated much fanfare, with United followers eager to show their support for the record-setting addition.
DID YOU KNOW?
However, the Daily Mail reports that fans have been prevented from purchasing Hojlund jerseys due to an oversight on the club’s part. As recently as last Friday, visitors to the Old Trafford Megastore were informed that a delivery of the “unique o” required to fulfil requests was still being waited on.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
United have since announced that the “øs” have arrived and that Hojlund shirts are now finally on sale. The highly-rated 20-year-old made his Premier League debut for the Red Devils off the bench in a 3-1 defeat at Arsenal and will be hoping to figure more prominently after the international break – starting with a home date with Brighton on September 16.
