Van Persie excited by Greenwood’s goal against Bournemouth

Mason Greenwood is one of the best youngsters in world football today. His finishing abilities are remarkable and part of what makes him an interesting player to watch.

He is good with both feet, and has often been compared to former Manchester United star Robin Van Persie.

The Dutchman watched Greenwood put on yet another impressive display in the demolition of Bournemouth on Saturday, and had some pretty encouraging words to share about the 18 year old.

When asked on Twitter if he was watching Greenwood, the Premier League winner replied: “Yeah I am! Great team play at the first goal, clever movement, silky 1st touch and class finish of Greenwood.”

Greenwood scored twice against Bournemouth, to take his season’s tally to 15 goals across all competitions and help Manchester United keep the pressure on Chelsea, as we push for a top four finish.
