Former Man United star raves about Greenwood

Ex-Manchester United star Robin van Persie, appears to be very impressed with what he’s seen from Mason Greenwood so far.

There have been comparisons between the Dutchman and the rising 18 year old in their styles of play, and it appears he has no problems with them at all.

Van Persie had followed Greenwood’s progress at Man United, and has had some really interesting things to say about the Englishman’s performances in the last two games.

After Greenwood’s strike at Villa Park on Thursday, Van Persie was so impressed with his finishing ability, he took to his Instagram to say, “Left foot, right foot no problem!”

It wouldn’t be the first time Persie would heap praise on Greenwood, who he also seemed impressed with after his brace against Bournemouth.

Greenwood currently has 16 goals across all competitions this season, and is just one away from breaking Wayne Rooney’s record at United.
