Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has reacted to claims playing Mason Greenwood often may cause the young forward to suffer a burnout soon.
When asked during his pre-match conference if the 18 year old could possibly be overplayed, the Norwegian replied: “At that age, you’ve got so much energy. There’s no fear, you just want to go and play football. If we had a day off he’d play football with his mates.
“I’m not worried about Mason this season, we just need to look after him his whole career.
“He’s a fantastic boy who loves football and he’s getting the result and rewards for his hard work.
“We know what he’s capable of and have always trusted him to be a part of this squad and chip in with performances and goals.
“We’ve seen it every day. I’ve seen it since I came to the club. He’s just a natural footballer and when you put natural good footballers with better footballers that gives him more opportunities to show his qualities.
“The club know what they’re doing when they’re educating players.”
Greenwood has starred in almost all our matches since the restart, and with Olé suggesting the same eleven from our last five matches, it’s likely we’ll be seeing the English talisman again, as we face Southampton on Monday.
