Man United accused of ‘incompetence’ as embarrassing Rasmus Hojlund gaffe comes to light

Manchester United supporters encountered an unfortunate delay in acquiring jerseys bearing the name of their new acquisition, Rasmus Hojlund, due to an oversight.

Hojlund, who was secured from Atalanta in a substantial £72 million deal during the summer, left fans disappointed when they sought to don his name on their replica kits.

The Old Trafford Megastore lacked the necessary Danish character ‘ø,’ preventing enthusiasts from displaying their allegiance to the emerging star.

Hojlund officially became a United player on August 5, marking his introduction to supporters at Old Trafford during a pre-season encounter with Lens from Ligue 1.

However, a back injury hindered his debut until September 3, when he made a substitute appearance in a 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.

After six weeks had elapsed since Hojlund’s arrival, supporters can now finally obtain shirts bearing his name.

According to the Daily Mail, the elusive ‘ø’ character arrived on Thursday, and the jerseys are currently available for purchase.

Nevertheless, the club has faced criticism for their perceived incompetence in not making replica Hojlund shirts available earlier.

A disgruntled fan, intending to buy one as a birthday gift, voiced their frustration, stating, “It’s incompetence.

The marquee summer signing, and you still can’t procure a shirt with his name because nobody thought to include the Danish ‘ø’.”

Hojlund’s shirt number remained undisclosed upon his signing, primarily due to his injury.

It was only on the eve of his debut against Arsenal that he was allocated the No. 11 shirt.

While Hojlund’s on-field appearances for United have been brief, team captain Bruno Fernandes has been impressed by his initial contributions at Old Trafford.

Fernandes noted Hojlund’s proactive attitude and expressed optimism about his potential to bring energy, strength, and goals to the team.

He emphasized the desire to establish a connection with the new striker and his fellow teammates.

United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, also commended Hojlund for his impactful performance when coming off the bench against Arsenal, highlighting his positive influence on the game.
