Hojlund fell out with two Man Utd team-mates after complaining about Bruno Fernandes

Earlier in the season, Manchester United’s new signing, Rasmus Hojlund, experienced tension with teammates, including Bruno Fernandes, over on-field dynamics.

Hojlund, a recent £71 million acquisition from Atalanta, quickly won over fans with his dynamic and vigorous performances.

Despite a commendable 13 goals in 37 games for the 21-year-old in his debut season, Hojlund believed he could have contributed more to the team’s scoring.

His Premier League goal drought ended on Boxing Day with a poignant score during a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford, which had been a source of growing frustration for him.

Reports from the Daily Mail indicated Hojlund’s dissatisfaction with Fernandes, feeling underserved on the field.

The situation escalated when Hojlund voiced his concerns to the coaching staff, posing a challenge for Erik ten Hag’s management team.

Disagreements peaked after a Champions League loss to Copenhagen, where Hojlund criticized teammate Diogo Dalot’s defensive efforts during a crucial moment of the game. The situation worsened with United’s subsequent defeat.

With Fernandes aligning with Dalot, Hojlund found himself further alienated within the squad.

United’s staff encouraged Hojlund to directly address his concerns with Diogo Dalot instead of bringing them to the coaches.

After a handshake and discussion, Hojlund and Dalot put their differences aside, leading to a reconciliation between Fernandes and Hojlund as well.

This episode sheds light on the occasional discord within the team’s locker room, especially during a season where United’s performance has not met expectations.

The team’s struggles were evident as they finished at the bottom of their Champions League group and were eliminated from the Carabao Cup by Newcastle.

Currently positioned 7th in the Premier League, United is at risk of missing out on qualifying for the next Champions League season.
