Suara.com – Manchester United striker Wout Weghorst finally opened the tap for goals at his new club after failing in the first two matches. The tall striker from the Netherlands began to brag, he said that this was not his last goal in a Manchester United shirt.
Weghorst joined Manchester United on loan from Burnley in the January 2023 transfer window.
Immediately becoming a starter in two Premier League matches 2022/2023, Weghorst failed to score a goal or assist for Manchester United.
But in the first leg of the English League Cup semifinal earlier today, Weghorst’s wait for his first goal at Manchester United finally came to an end.

The 30-year-old striker scored against Nottingham Forest and helped The Red Devils win 3-0 away, Thursday (26/1/2023) early morning WIB.
“I am very happy to be able to score my first goal. It is very good and very proud to be able to wear this costume, let alone score a goal,” Weghorst told MUTV,
Weghorst also gave credit to his colleagues for his first goal. He considered the process of creating the goal so good that he was able to beat Forest’s goal.
“In that moment we did a good attack from the right. I think it was Casemiro who gave Antony a good pass and he shot the ball well,” said Weghorst.
“When I saw the ball bounce a little high, I immediately kicked it when the ball rebounded and it turned out that the ball fell right in front of my feet so I could kick it,” continued the former Wolfsburg and Besiktas striker.

Weghorst was then optimistic that this would not be his last goal for Manchester United. The player who has only been on loan from Manchester United for six months without a purchase option is sure he can score many goals for the Red Devils until the end of the season.
“As a striker, you want to score a lot of goals. But it all started with the first goal, and I hope I can score many more. I really believe I can,” said Weghorst.
“I want to help my team by scoring goals. Today this goal is quite important for our team, because this goal was born right before half-time,” he said.
