Manchester United boss Solskjaer has been full of praise for youngster Mason Greenwood. He has has warned future League oppositions that the teenager has “turned into a man” over the summer.

Greenwood had to withdraw from Euro 2020 due to injury. Nonetheless, the 19-year-old was handed a full pre-season. He opened his tally for the season with a strike against Leeds United in the opening game.

Solskjaer believes that the youngster has much more to offer : “I think you can see how much work he has put down in his preseason, in his summer, he has turned into a man. He is filling out, he is stronger. His stride is stronger and you know when he ran away from the defender and scored his goal, it was a joy to see.

Stepping up

The Englishman has scored 30 goals in 106 first-team appearances, having made his debut in the remarkable Champions League triumph at Paris St Germain in March 2019.

Greenwood’s latest strike came in Saturday’s 5-1 defeat of Leeds. The Devils’ forward raced onto a fine Paul Pogba pass before slotting home with fine a low strike.

In the absence of Edinson Cavani, Greenwood led the line as the No.9 with Pogba playing as an inside left winger and Daniel James on the right wing. His movement was greatly problematic for Struijk and Liam Cooper, who showed signs of struggle keeping up.

Solskjaer has improved his attacking options with the acquisition of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. Sancho, alongside Anthony Martial, was on the bench in the opening game. Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani did not make the matchday squad.

A positive Covid-19 report ruled out Jesse Lingard. However, the Norwegian expects Lingard to play a “big part” at Old Trafford this season after a successful loan spell at West Ham.

Don’t forget Jesse Lingard, he has reinvented himself and he has come back the man that we know,” said Solskjaer. “With the quality he has, he is going to play a big part.”
