He said: I think it was positive. You see from the fans in first moment at Old Trafford, the reception was great.

"Hojlund performed very well, good that they gave this signal, this message will give Rasmus belief. He came in with small issue, he's not ready for a whole game.

"If Hojlund gets injured because he is not capable to play 90 minutes, then we are much further away from where we want to go."

He then continued: "The booing was because Rasmus came off. But I think Martial last year when he played, he had a positive effect on our games… when he is fit, he will contribute.

"He is not top fit at this moment, but he is improving. When he is 100 per cent fit, he will contribute like last season."

Man United are languishing in 13th following their poor start to the season.

Tomorrow they turn their attention towards the Champions League, when they face Harry Kane and Bayern Munich in Germany.
