Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named Mason Greenwood as the best finisher he has ever worked with following the Englishman’s spectacular display in Manchester United’s 5-2 victory against Bournemouth.
The Manchester United academy graduate scored twice as United ran riot at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Greenwood is enjoying a breakthrough season at Old Trafford as he has netted 17 goals and provided five assists in 43 appearances for the Red Devils.
In an interview with BBC Sports after United’s big win against Eddie Howe’s men, Solskjaer was quick to heap praise on the 18-year-old’s scoring prowess.
“Mason is one of the best if not the best finisher I have worked with and seen,” the former Molde FK and Cardiff City boas said.
He is so calm. He knows where to finish if it is on the training ground, here or in his garden at home.”
He has chipped in with 17 goals already, and Bruno’s tally is going up so we have goals everywhere. I am not worried about goals in the team.”
It is the first time the Red Devil’s have won three successive Premier League games this season. They are hitting form at exactly the right time as they face a top-four finish challenge with Chelsea, Leicester, Wolves and Arsenal.
Manchester currently sit fifth on the Premier League table, right below Leicester and Chelsea.
Next up for Manchester United is a trip to Birmingham to face Aston Villa, who are fighting to stay in the division.
