Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the reason behind Mason Greenwood’s absence against Newcastle United.

The Norwegian has clearly stated that Greenwood was not fully fit to play on Saturday, but hopes the youngster is available for selection soon.

Furthermore, he was also quick to praise the performance of Daniel James against Newcastle United.

When asked why Mason Greenwood didn’t feature for Man United in their win over Newcastle United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Mason wasn’t fit to play, so we had to leave him out.

“We hope he will recover quickly. Attacking-wise, I thought Dan with the speed would create problems for teams and Juan and Bruno are intelligent and create chances for us and we could have scored a few more.

“It’s not just about attackers though, it’s about the team working for each other pressing from the front. Dan has incredible speed on the counter and today he showed more positivity, he trusted himself. We work with all the players to express themselves and show what they’re good at.”

Greenwood is believed to have picked up a late knock in training, but is not expected to be out on the sidelines for long.
