Before Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus found the net, though, fans spotted Hojlund – who signed from Atalanta in a £72million deal this summer – and Casemiro appearing to have a fiery exchange.

The midfielder looked as if he was trying to fire up the Denmark international, grabbing his shirt before shoving him back.

But now, Hojlund has revealed that his new teammate was enjoying the new lease of life he’d given the Red Devils up top after he came on for Antony Martial.

As quoted by The Sun, Man United’s summer signing said: “He [Casemiro] just said something in Spanish, ‘vamos’ or something like that.

“He was happy that I gave the team perhaps a slightly different dynamic than what you get from Martial.

“He’s maybe a little more technically strong and looks down the gaps where I like to take the fights.

“After all, he hasn’t seen me play before, so he told me he was pleasantly surprised to see me play.”

Hojlund is now away on international duty with Denmark where they face San Marino and Finland in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Man United fans will be keen to see what impact he can make when the Premier League returns next week, as Man United host Brighton at Old Trafford.
