EPL: His record not like Haaland – Chris Sutton expresses concern over Man Utd’s summer signing
Former Chelsea attacker Chris Sutton has expressed his concern over new Manchester United signing Rasmus Hojlund.
Sutton believes Hojlund could struggle to hit the ground running at the Red Devils, insisting that he doesn’t have Manchester City striker Erling Haaland’s goalscoring record.
Man United recently signed Hojlund from Atalanta for £72 million.
The 20-year-old scored nine league goals in 32 appearances last season for Atalanta.
“A lot has been made about this signing, over £70million all-in-all. Looking at his record, it is not like Haaland signing for Manchester City, where he signed for them with a real goalscoring pedigree,” Sutton told Mail Sport’s all new podcast.
“He was at Copenhagen, went to Austria with Sturm Graz for a season, was not overly prolific there, then Atalanta and he did not get into double figures. Nine goals in 30-odd games. That is not an incredible strike rate as such.
“I’m not saying they have wasted their money, but it is not going to help him going into a club where the eyes will be on him, to go and start banging the goals in and he’s got an injury.”
