Manchester United left-back, Luke Shaw, believes teammate, Mason Greenwood, has what it takes to step up to the shoes of some of the legendary strikers we have had at the club.

Luke Shaw, who was full of excitement as he spoke about Greenwood in his diary for the official Man United website, had this to say; “He’s had a fantastic first season in the first team. He’s clearly a natural goalscorer.

“This season – even though he doesn’t start all the time – his goals return and his stats are great, and he’s got some assists too. For someone so young, in their first season, he’s done brilliantly.

“He’s still got so much to learn, but if he carries on working hard and pushes himself every day then I don’t see why we can’t see him turn into another Robin van Persie or a player of that style that’ll score lots of goals for us.

“Purely the fact that he’s so two-footed, it’s unbelievable.”

Greenwood has proven he can provide the goals for Man United, and if a recent report by Daily Mail is to be taken seriously, he is important to the club. He currently has 12 goals for United across all competitions this season, behind only Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who have 18 and 19, in that order.
