Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville, has revealed Mason Greenwood is a more ruthless finisher than teammates Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, despite the latter players scoring 19 goals this season.
Greenwood was on target for United on Tuesday night, following a fine dribbling effort, and has now taken his season’s tally to 13 goals across all competitions.
Reacting to the 17 year old’s performance, Phil Neville told DAZN, “You know the difference between Greenwood compared to Martial and Rashford is that Greenwood is a natural, ruthless finisher.
“You see the stepovers there, he shoots between his [the defender’s] legs like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used to do.
“I think this kid’s got a massive future. I think he has everything.
“He plays a little Robin van Persie like in terms of his style. His legs are similar, the way he graces the field. His composure and finishing is as good as anything at that club.”
Manchester United ran out 3-0 winners from the encounter, and are now just two points behind fourth placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand against West Ham.
If United keeps up the momentum, there’s no denying that Champions League football would be guaranteed by the end of the ongoing campaign.
