“He is a Man United Legend but what he said about one of my teammate before affected him so much that he lost his confidence in football. And he is tye most talentes player we have. They should be careful of what they say about footballers”-Rasmus Højlund responds to Man United Legend/Pundit “unbelievable” comment on United Players.

Roy Keane has been left with egg on his face after Rasmus Højlund responded perfectly to his claim about the Manchester United striker’s goal record.Much has been made about Rasmus Højlund‘s lack of Premier League goals for Manchester United, with the striker having failed to score in his first 14 appearances in the competition, despite being the club’s top scorer across all competitions.However, against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, Højlund was fantastic, opening the scoring just minutes in and supplying an assist for Marcus Rashford before the first half ended

Speaking ahead of the game, Roy Keane explained his belief that Højlund is not showing the skills and desire required to be a striker for United and that he’s not going to keep waiting for success

He’s been allowed some time now to bed himself into the club, into English football, but now we’re talking about Man United,” said Keane about Højlund before kick-off.“You have to have that real desire to score goals. They went to Wigan in midweek and won 2-0 with a defender scoring, and the second goal was a penalty.

“These players just don’t have the desire to score, and he’s not shown it. There have been players that have come to Manchester United and we’ve spoken about how ‘unlucky’ they are, but you can’t keep waiting.“He’s had chances, he’s had an injury when he arrived, and you might give him the benefit of the doubt, but the shooting and scoring statistics are so poor, it’s unbelievable. It’s also down to the players around him, the more experienced ones that are used to the Premier League, I don’t see that desire in them.”

Højlund’s goals provided him the perfect response to Keane’s comments, with the Danish striker going clear as United’s top goalscorer for the season.He now has goals in back-to-back Premier League fixtures for the first time, having also scored on his last appearance for Aston Villa.

“There’s been a lot of talk about me not scoring in the Premier League, but I’ve always believed in my ability, and my teammates and coach have always done that as well,” he told Premier League Productions after the game.

“They should stop criticising our players. We are suffering a lot “
