Greenwood hailed as a natural number nine by Ole

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has been hailed as a brilliant striker with natural instincts by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“It’s easy from the outside, sitting in the stands and watching,” Manchester United boss Solskjaer said of what United should have done differently. “Could have done that, should have done that. It was a bit of a calm head [needed,]that maybe you’ll get a bit more experience because young kids wanna do it, want to do well and we just didn’t have that one little bit extra composure.

“You wanted the ball to drop to Mason, for example, because he’s so calm and composed in there, when he gets a chance he takes his chances. We put them under pressure, ran out of time towards the end.

“It’s just so natural for him, knows exactly what to do, because if you open your legs he shoots through you, if you close your legs he bends it round you. He can go right and left.

“Too many chances are missed, in general, in football of strikers rushing the finish, stressing, but the best ones have that little extra half second and he does.”
