The £72m striker finally made his long-awaited debut for Manchester United against Arsenal earlier this month
According to reports, Manchester United couldn’t sell shirts with Rasmus Højlund’s name on the back because they lacked the proper letters.
The 20-year-old Danish striker, who cost £72 million to sign with United from Atalanta last month, made his debut as a substitute in the team’s most recent 3-1 loss to Arsenal.
But Red Devils supporters are still unable to get a Højlund replica shirt, and it seems for quite a terrible reason.
According to a report from MailOnline, United could not print jerseys with their new number 11’s name on the back as the club shop did not have any of the Danish letter ø in stock.
It’s possible that fans in a rush could have purchased a “Hojlund” shirt (or ” Hjlund”), but it wouldn’t have been the same.
The club is now able to sell gear featuring the name of their most expensive addition of the summer thanks to the arrival of the summer.
United announced the replica shirts from the 2022–23 season that sold the most back in June.
The Red Devils’ supporters favored Marcus Rashford over 2022 summer additions Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez, who came in second and third, respectively.
Within 10 days of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford in 2021, United sold a record £187 million worth of his jerseys.
