Bruno Fernandes’ sends timely Mason Greenwood message

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has come in for criticisms this season, as his scoring form has dropped compared to last season when he had an impressive return.

Greenwood has a good game on Sunday against Brighton, as he scored United’s winning goal on the night.

With 10 goals scored last season, Greenwood has only hit 2 league goals this season, and many have criticised his poor form.

However, Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has sent a message to the critics of the 19-year-old striker, by insisting that he’s still a young player who is developing his game.

“What everyone has to know is Mason is a young player,” Fernandes said after the win over Brighton.

“Now everyone starts to know how Mason is, so it starts to become more difficult for him, it’s normal.

“It’s part of the development of him and he will learn from here.

“It doesn’t matter how many goals he scores, what’s important is he still helps the team and does his best because as a team that’s what matters.

“It doesn’t matter who scores, if mason scores or not for us, it’s important if he can do a job, recovering balls, pressing, defend when we need, creating assists, create danger.

“So it’s not important for him to score. He has to understand that, he’s such a young lad, every striker wants to score but anyway he will score more goals more and more.

“With the passing of the seasons he will score more and more.”
