Rasmus Hojlund sends two-word message to Man United fans over potential return vs Everton

Rasmus Hojlund has been injured since his brace at Kenilworth Road in February and now he’s provided Manchester United fans with an update.

Manchester United have seen the positive start to 2024 derailed by injuries to three key players over the last month

First Lisandro Martinez was put back on the injured list against West Ham, with a return in early April hoped for.

The impact he has up-front for United is huge and it’s clear to see the difference with Marcus Rashford in his place.
