Watch: Greenwood has been scoring great goals for Man Utd since he was 17
Manchester United‘s Mason Greenwood has earned plenty of admirers recently but his talent has been evident for a few years.
Greenwood enjoyed an incredible breakthrough season in 2019-20, scoring 17 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils.
“He is one of the best, if not the best finisher I have worked with and seen,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told BBC Sport in July 2020. “He is so calm. He knows where to finish if it is on the training ground, here or in his garden at home.”
An old video of him playing for United’s Under-18s against West Brom in March 2018 has emerged online, and he was clearly head and shoulders above his peers.
The forward showcases his ability with both feet and skips past three defenders before poking the ball into the far corner.
