Manchester United striker, Wout Weghorst, has admitted he needs to start scoring goals if he must stay at the club beyond his loan spell.
The Dutchman is on loan from Championship club Burnley after United’s interest in the striker cut short his temporary spell at Turkish club Besiktas.
“In the end, it’s very simple. As a striker, you are judged by goals,” Weghorst told Algemeen Dagblat.
“He (Erik ten Hag) indicated that attacking reinforcements were desirable. A striker, a number 9. Such a type was sought to add to the selection. And then it’s simple. The best plays. I have to force it to make minutes.
“In my career, I have always done one thing: score goals. We’ve had two games now. If I start missing big chances, then I have to start worrying. But I’m confident I can do it and I’ll be fine. The coach saw that I was ready. [It was] nice to enforce that confidence from the start.
“It is fantastic to be here. The atmosphere, the away fans, the game that waves up and down. Wonderful. I’ve been here for over a week now. It’s going well. Of course (I want to stay), but first I have to make sure I can be of value to the team and this club.”
