Rio Ferdinand felt that the wingers weren’t giving Rasmus Hojbjerg a chance.
Manchester United made several big signings last summer. They brought in Chelsea’s franchise star Mason Mount, snapped up UEFA Champions League (UCL) runner-up Andre Onana in the 2022-23 season, and added Sofiane Amrabat, who led Morocco to a top-four finish at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
But there was another player who stole the show. The star of the show was Huy Lun. After losing Cristiano Ronaldo and failing to find a suitable replacement, United paid a transfer fee of over 100 billion won to bring him in.
He turned a lot of heads last season. Even at the tender age of 19, he was a complete physical specimen at 6-foot-5, with great speed, a dribbling streak, and the ability to play in the post and provide. His style of play reminded me a bit of Manchester City’s Elling Holland.
The results were good. In the 2022-23 season, he moved to Atalanta of the Italian Serie A, where he quickly established himself as a starter and scored 10 goals in 34 games, including cup competitions.
Expectations were high. However, so far, Hoilearn hasn’t lived up to expectations. He scored three goals in three UCL group stage games, but hasn’t scored a goal in the league. Three goals in 10 games, including cup competitions. Not enough to be called a Ronaldo replacement.
However, United ‘legend’ Ferdinand believes that the Red Devils are not playing to his strengths, saying on his YouTube channel, “We need to get to a level 먹튀검증 where we play to the strengths of our players. Hui Lun wants the ball to be crossed in the box. Look at his goal in the UCL, he scored with a header.”
“You have to get wide, and then you have to cross! Anthony continues to hold the ball with his left foot and doesn’t cross. Rashford doesn’t cross at all from the left either. Get past the full-backs, create space, and put the ball into the box! Hui Lun won’t miss it,” he argued.
