Rasmus Hojlund amusingly dubs Christian Eriksen as ‘Agent Christian’ in a recent interview

In a recent interview after completing his high-profile transfer to Manchester United, Rasmus Hojlund humorously dubbed Christian Eriksen as ‘Agent Christian’ due to the influential role the fellow Danish footballer played in facilitating his move from Atalanta to the Red Devils.

“It’s good that Christian Eriksen is here. He took me in,” he told the Danish outlet. “He called himself ‘Agent Christian’ over the summer.”

He added: “It’s huge to play for the club I dreamed of when I was very young.”

Hojlund’s introduction as a Manchester United player occurred during the club’s pre-season friendly against Lens last Saturday.

While observing from the stands, he witnessed his new team secure a 3-1 victory over the French side, with goals from Marcus Rashford, Antony, and Casemiro.

Although the promising forward, whose transfer amounted to as much as £72 million, is dealing with a minor injury, which might lead to his absence from the initial matches of the upcoming season, there is anticipation for his potential debut against Nottingham Forest towards the end of this month.

Speaking about his new talent, Erik ten Hag said: “He is really a front man, very direct to the goal. A very good presser, a physical presence and I think in the balance of this squad we needed that.

“Alongside Rashford, [he is] another player who is direct and can score goals and that is all in his mind – he wants to score goals.”

The Dutchman added: “I think he has such a huge potential and now it is up first to him to explore that and we will support him – all the coaches.

“I’m sure the whole team was waiting for a type like him and they will integrate and in the dressing room or on the pitch they will help him.

“But as I said, finally the player – he has to prove it.”
