Many Manchester United fans were left to slam the display of Mason Greenwood despite their 2-0 win over Granada in the Europa League on Thursday night.
A very early goal from Edinson Cavani effectively put the tie to bed before a Jesus Vallejo own goal put the icing on the cake for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team at Old Trafford as they cruised through into the semi-final stage of the competition, where they will play AS Roma over two legs for a place in the final.
Should Greenwood start for Manchester United?
However, while there were some solid performances in a Red Devils shirt, Greenwood’s flattered to deceive, as he lost out on half of his duels and failed to record a single key pass or accurate cross, losing possession of the ball on no fewer than 13 different occasions in the game (Sofascore).
The England international never really made a real impact in the match, having fewer touches than his own goalkeeper David de Gea, as he scored a quite measly 6.4 overall rating on Sofascore, the lowest out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch.
Manchester United fans on Greenwood display
These MUFC supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one even going as far as to claim that the 19-year-old was ‘disinterested’:
“Man, Greenwood can’t sort out his feet quickly and that’s really frustrating. #MUFC #UEL #MUNGRA”
“Mason Greenwood is too one dimensional. For the hype he gets his overall game doesn’t warrant it at all. Nowhere near ready to be playing 9 as regularly as people think he should be. #mufc”
“Greenwood having a rather poor game. #MUFC #UEL”
“Other than the goal we’ve been poor going forward tonight. Bruno’s playing awfully and Greenwood needs to improve his link up and decisions on the ball. Let’s see off this game #MUFC”
“I don’t know what to say to people who think Greenwood can lead Manchester United’s strike line. He is nowhere near being ready for that. Will probably take more than 3-4 years that too if his attitude & application is correct for it to happen. #MUFC”
“Greenwood displaying Martial tendencies tonight. Ambling about a lot looking disinterested. #MUFC”
