Marcus Rashford has advised Mason Greenwood to ignore outside influences and keep his head on football.
Greenwood became the youngest Manchester United player to reach 15 goals in a season since Wayne Rooney.
The youngster scored a brace in their 5-2 win against Bournemouth on Saturday. His performance in recent times have been lauded by the United boss but he refuses to compare Greenwood with United legends Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Rashford suggested his teammate to ignore praise and outside influence and keep focus on his football.
“He’s a fantastic player. I’ve watched him before he got to the first-team. It was never a matter of if was going to play with us, it was just when. When can we get him involved? Ole has done a terrific job with him,” Rashford said.
“First of all, he put him in the squad and brought him on against PSG and that for a player, as a first step, it’s huge and it shows that the manager had confidence in him. You’ve got no reason not to have confidence in a player like Mason.
“But, for me, I just tell him to keep doing what he’s doing because what he does is score goals, so he doesn’t need to do anything else. You know, forget everything whatever people are doing outside, whether it’s praise or negativity.
“I just think there’s a massive flood of positivity right now and momentum. For us, we want to keep that going. All three of us scored. Mason scored two. That’s the type of momentum we want to keep going. That’s it, really.
“He’s done very well for the whole season. It’s not just these bits he’s been scoring goals. He’s been working hard for the team and doing the dirty work, you know the unseen work. He does it so he deserves all the credit that he gets.”
