Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hailed Mason Greenwood as the best finisher at the club. The former United captain also likened the academy graduate to former United striker Robin van Persie.
After Mason Greenwood’s 68th-minute goal against West Ham, Gary Neville said on Sky Sports: “The individuals like [Paul] Pogba and Greenwood – they’ve got star quality.
“Good from [Bruno] Fernandes, then [Alex] Telles plays it in. He’s the best finisher in the club, Mason Greenwood. That is class.
“The first touch, I always say every time I watch him I feel it’s Robin van Persie. The power on the strike is what beats the goalkeeper.”
The Pundit added: “You could argue that [Juan] Mata, Greenwood, [Anthony] Martial and [Marcus] Rashford, they all want to play centrally and certainly Greenwood does.
“I think he’s the best footballer out of all of them. He’s young, he has so much potential, it’s untrue.”
