Mason Greenwood – Forward. He’s shown so much and had a great start to his Manchester United career and proved he can score important goals. Many want him to play more, but he’s still developing and has disappeared in some games.
Marcus and Mason has already hit an effective partnership
Mason Greenwood says he feels that he is going the same way to Red Devils as Marcus Rashford, and he is eager to learn as much as possible from the England international going forward. Rashford enjoyed his best season back in the United T-shirt before being cut by an injury last month, complaining of 19 goals in all competitions. The 22-year-old player celebrated his 200th appearance for the Red Devils on January 11 and noted this incident by removing the brace in a 4-0 home victory over Norwich. Mason has had the pleasure of playing with Rashford since last year he made his way to the first team, and the couple has already hit an effective partnership in the final third of the field.
I feel like I’m following in his footsteps
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer entrusted to Greenwood after he sent Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez off to Inter, and the 18-year-old striker rewarded his manager with faith, scoring ten goals. In the coming years, the teenage striker was encouraged to reach the same level as Rashford, the player whom he sees as a vivid example of how to successfully progress through the ranks at Old Trafford. When asked if he considers Rashford as a role model, Greenwood told reporters: “Yes. He was at the academy and went through the ranks, and I feel like I’m following in his footsteps.
Greenwood in the senior box at the age of 16
“He is several years older than me, but I can draw a lot of inspiration from what he has achieved so far.” I know him for a long time, so I saw how well he did and how he progressed as a player, so there is a lot to learn from being around him. “Greenwood stepped into the senior box during the pre-season United tour of 2018 at the age of 16. So he recalls several experienced stars of the first team, who were looking for him “on the field and beyond” during this period. “It was a different level,” he said. “There were many more crowds there than that that I used to play in front of myself. There were many fans from all over the world, so it was a good experience.
“Leaving with such strikers as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku was the best way to learn, just to see how they worked as main strikers and the main finalists was a great lesson for me.” They all cared for me and helped me on the field and beyond. “Greenwood added about how he has developed as a player in the last 18 months of his fragile career:” It was nice to play some important league and cup games with the first team, but I’m still doing the same the most that I did in Under 23s and youth teams.
“I think I should trust the things that drove me to where I am and continue to try to do them in the first team.” Greenwood will again be in dispute over a place in Ole’s lineup when the Red Devils take a significant trip to Stamford Bridge on February 17 to face Chelsea.
