Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Mason Greenwood
Ahead of the clash with Astana, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been speaking about Mason Greenwood.
Greenwood has played just eight games for Man United’s senior side, all of which have come under OGS.
But, according to BBC Sport, Greenwood is set to start Thursday’s tie.
When speaking about Greenwood, Solskjaer stated that he is one of the best finishers he has seen:
“His appetite for football is growing. I don’t want to put too much pressure on him apart from go out there, enjoy yourself and work hard.
“When you’ve got strikers who can score goals, you should never lose the hunger of scoring goals. Never lose the appetite of creating chances and be ready to take yours.
“Mason is one of the best finishers I’ve seen and I’ve played with quite a few decent ones.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
