And in his post-match interview with TNT Sports, Hojlund discussed Kobbie Mainoo and the growing connections in the United team.
He said: “I didn’t really get to see (Mainoo) in pre-season but everyone was saying he is an incredible talent. He has a nice body type and he is mature already.
“He is very calm and also outside the pitch he is a nice and relaxed guy. You can see he is composed. He is an incredible talent. I thought I was young but he is stepping up at the age of 18.”
“I think like you say, it is about time (on connections growing). That’s partly due to needing to get connections in the team. I say to them that if they pass and I am not there then they can scream at me.
“But also if I am there and they don’t pass, I can scream at them. It is a good chemistry we are starting to get. You can see the relationship with me, Marcus and Garna is getting good.”
