Man United’s Secret Pact with Denmark: Rasmus Hojlund Workload Management

In a collaborative effort between Manchester United and the Danish national team, an agreement has been struck to carefully manage the workload of young talent Rasmus Hojlund during the current international break.

Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand disclosed the arrangement as Hojlund joins the national squad for friendlies against Switzerland and the Faroe Islands.

Hojlund, aged 21, recently returned to action after recovering from a muscular issue, featuring in Manchester United’s FA Cup clash against Liverpool last weekend following a four-game absence due to injury. Despite his return, Man United head coach Erik ten Hag remains cautious about overplaying the forward.

“We have an agreement with United about the total amount of playing time in the two matches,” Hjulmand informed reporters. “It does not make sense to smash a player through and increase the risk of an injury that goes beyond our own Euro plans.”

Highlighting the importance of cooperation between the two entities, Hjulmand emphasized that the plan is devised for Hojlund’s benefit as well as the club’s.

“Our staff has put together a plan with Erik ten Hag on how he will get the best build-up after Rasmus’s injury period. It is both for our good and their good,” he added.
