Hojlund ushered off pitch after gesture at Villa fans before making fan’s day

    The cheeky and kind-hearted side to Rasmus Hojlund was on show during Manchester United’s win at Aston Villa.

    Man United secured a crucial three points in their top four bid as goals from Hojlund and Scott McTominay gave them a 2-1 victory at Villa Park.

    Hojlund was seen shushing the Villa fans in the stands when celebrating McTominay’s 86th-minute winner, and the Danish forward was in more mischievous mood when he was substituted in stoppage time.

    The 21-year-old was seen gesturing the 2-1 scoreline with his hands as he slowly made his way off.

    Douglas Luiz, who scored Villa’s equaliser in the second half and had a cheeky celebration to boot, then confronted Hojlund over his actions and ushered him off.

    But Hojlund showed his softer side after the final whistle in what was a wholesome moment with a young Man United fan.

    Hojlund gifted his match worn shirt to the young fan who was sat in the disabled area of the Villa Park away end, much to the delight of the fan and his family.

    The £73million signing has enjoyed an upturn in form in recent weeks, scoring five goals in as many Premier League appearances.

    He showed his best striker’s instinct on 17 minutes when he opened the scoring, tucking the ball through Emi Martinez after meeting Harry Maguire‘s header from a corner.

    For Manchester United, it was a result that could reignite their season.

    Victory over Aston Villa means that the Red Devils remain sixth in the Premier League, but closing the gap on those above them.

    Erik ten Hag‘s side are now just five points behind Villa in fifth and six points from the top four.

    With 14 games to go, the hunt for Champions League football is very much still on Man United.
