It’s no surprise that Rasmus Hojlund said he looked up to three Manchester United stars as a child. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of them.
The striker, who is 21 years old and a big United fan, watched the club win a lot of major football titles as a child.A lot of the biggest and best players in the game helped United win, and the team’s future stars will have learned a lot from those players.
Hojlund isn’t the only one; the youngster says that Ronaldo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner and world superstar, is his hero.
Hojlund said, “It has to be Cristiano” when asked on The United Stand to name his most important players.
“[Wayne] Rooney as well I’m thinking about, [Carlos] Tevez as well, but Cristiano was probably the guy.”I remember cheering for him and keeping up with him the next year. I also didn’t forget to follow him and watch him play at Juventus and Real Madrid.
“He has always been my idol and I’ve followed the clubs where he’s been and supporting United, they were my first team really.”
When Ronaldo joined United at age 18, he quickly became one of the best football players in the world. He had a great first season at Old Trafford.
A lot of people love the Portuguese great, and the club won three Premier League titles and the Champions League with him.United’s all-time top scorer, Rooney, played with him in the strong attack. Over 13 years, he scored 253 goals for the club.
He was also inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame, which made him an even bigger figure in English football history.Even though Tevez was only at United for two years while on loan from West Ham, he had a great time there.
The Argentine won five big awards and scored 34 goals for the team, but he later signed with rivals Manchester City, which caused a lot of controversy.
All three of these players can help Hojlund as he continues to find his way at United after a rough start after moving there for £72 million from Atalanta.
He has scored four goals in his last four games for the team, giving him a total of ten for the season.
