Former Newcastle United star, Alan Shearer in a recent statement claimed Manchester United attacker Rasmus Hojlund is in an ‘unfair situation’ at Old Trafford.
While Hojlund has scored five goals in four UEFA Champions League games this season, he is yet to score in nine Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.
The Denmark star missed two great chances during their 1-0 victory over Luton Town last weekend before he was forced off in the closing stages with a hamstring injury.
However, Shearer thinks Man Utd need to sign another striker to ease the burden on Hojlund.
“Well, he [Hojlund] has not set Old Trafford alight yet, has he?” Shearer told Premier League Productions.
“In terms of his performances, he’s certainly been better in Europe than he has been in the Premier League.
“I like his movement, yes, he is very raw. It is probably an unfair situation to be putting him in.
“Ideally, you’d like to drip-feed him in, put him in for one or two, bring him out, bring him on for half an hour, leave him out for the next game.
