Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed the ability of youngster Mason Greenwood after his superb performance in our victory over Aston Villa and according to Solskjaer, Greenwood can be a top striker in future.

“You cannot leave players out when they score goals,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the media after Man United’s 3-0 thrashing of Aston Villa.

“He’s 18 and of course he will get better. He is a natural footballer and has been in the academy since he was a little boy. His dad showed me a picture of us together when he was seven. He knows we believe in him.

“He’s got to look after himself. I’m doing my bit to help him but he’s got to do it. He’s the one that’s got to turn in performances at training, in the games and to live his life properly.

“It’s all down to him. He can go as far as he wants to. He’s an exceptional finisher. He’s been in the club for so long and he knows what we want for him and he knows we believe in him,” he concluded.

Greenwood scored his 16th goal of the season with a stunning strike against Villa. The 18-year-old has scored in his last 3 matches for United and is closing in on breaking Wayne Rooney’s record for most goals in a single season by a teenager at Old Trafford.
