Manchester United coach Clayton Blackmore has hailed the free-kick ability of Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Blackmore said: “Mason Greenwood’s talent is scary, I watched him growing up and I’m shaking my head in disbelief watching him taking freekicks and penalties with both feet.

“Penalties I can see it, but freekicks are over 20 yards out most of the time and he’s hitting the target constantly with either foot.

“I’m surprised he’s not on them now, obviously Bruno Fernandes is a decent set piece taker, but Mason is very good at them.”
