Former Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov is confident Mason Greenwood can be the one to finally replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford, following the youngster’s performance in our recent win at Brighton.
In a recent chat with The Mirror, the Bulgarian said: “Greenwood, against Brighton, was like Ronaldo.
“His left foot is unbelievable along with his vision, I don’t think many signings are needed to take United to that next level.”
Greenwood scored a fine goal on Tuesday to put United ahead against Brighton, after a fine dribble in the area, to take his tally this season to 13 across all competitions.
The 17 year old is particularly special because of his rare ability to use both feet, which is something Ronaldo is also known for.
We admit he’s not yet on the same level with the Portugal legend, but with proper dedication, training, hunger and some guidance from the right coach, he will get there.
