Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s honeymoon period is over and Man United need to knuckle down and get the results from now until the end of the season. Clearly, things need to improve if they’re going to kick this new project off in the best possible way, with Champions League qualification the obvious goal.
In recent weeks his side have found some games problematic, mainly because of important injuries his team have incurred. Still, the team needs some fresh impetus, whether it be new signings or trusting youth players.
Though with serious changes likely to be made by the manager over the summer, perhaps the judgement should take place after he implements his own style with his pick of players.
Something fans of all clubs love to see is the implementation of youngsters in and around their squad.
Man United have successfully paved the way for a number of players in the first-team so that same opportunity should be given to Mason Greenwood in the summer ahead of next season. It’s a tradition that hasn’t died and, considering their new manager’s love for all things United, it’s not likely to.
Mason Greenwood has once again been superb for Man United’s youth side, as he’s gone on to supply 22 goals and six assists in 24 appearances. Amazing stuff and stats that will surely excite the Old Trafford faithful.
Whilst he has been around the first-team at times, Greenwood is yet to be given a real chance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, something that has to change this summer, if his fleeting performances in the first-team this term are anything to go by.
Having seen Marcus Rashford surge into the first-team picture unexpectedly, the same thing entirely could happen to Mason Greenwood, based on his phenomenal stats at youth level. With pace, power and finishing all top qualities of his, there is no reason to suggest why at the very least, he shouldn’t be given a chance to impress during pre-season.
After all with the significant spending United are probably planning, surely the idea of saving money wherever possible will be a good idea so they can concentrate on other positions, right?
Do you agree that Mason Greenwood is deserving of a shot in the first team? Let us know!
