Manchester United: Ryan Giggs discusses Mason Greenwood and his prospects at the club

Manchester United: Ryan Giggs discusses Mason Greenwood and his prospects at the club - Manchester United News

It’s not been the easiest of times recently off the pitch for Manchester United wonderkid Mason Greenwood, however he is only 18 years-old and will learn from his mistakes.

There is no doubting that he could become a future star for the Red Devils as well as England. Man United legend Ryan Giggs has been discussing the attacker and he has praised Greenwood as he expects big things from the player at the club.

Speaking to The Sun, the Wales manager said: ‘He’s nearly already scored more goals than I did, so there’s no pressure in that respect. But no, I don’t think he’ll feel the pressure of the number.

“He’s a brilliant player, who I don’t think he even looks like scoring every game — I think he’s going to score two every game, he’s that much of a threat.

“He’s been playing off the right — eventually, I think he will go as a centre-forward. But he needs to go again. Opposition will be aware of him and they’ll be trying to stop him.

“He’s got to find a way to keep improving, which I’m sure he will do because he’s very hard to stop — left or right foot, his movement’s good. And he’s in an attacking team with the likes of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, who can find him.”

The attacker, valued at £40.5m, played in 51 games for Manchester United last season (including 23 substitute appearances), and scored 19 goals as well as providing five assists, via Transfermarkt.

The quality is there for all to see and with him doing so well at such a young age, there is only room for improvement which isn’t just good for Man United, but also for England, and hopefully Greenwood can shine for both club and country.

Last season he was definitely a surprise package, but Giggs is right about the fact that opposition defences will know him better and this is where he has to improve to keep performing as well as he has been, and if he has produced such a tally in his first full season in senior football, then there is no doubting the fact that he could score consistently for the club.

The amount of goal contributions he got highlights how big a threat he is and if Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes stay fit then they will find him in the positions needed to produce more goals.

His potential is frightening, and it’s highlighted by the fact that he has already been selected for the England senior squad at such a young age, and all associated with the Red Devils should be very excited about his prospects.
