Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to hail the fearlessness Mason Greenwood has shown in attack this season.
The Red Devils coach recently came out to hail the way the youngster has been thriving alongside Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
According to him, Greenwood enjoys playing because he has been doing that since he was a kid and this has given him the required mindset to shine in front of goal.
He added that his front three did a lot of good work in the lockdown to be physically ready and they have been rewarded for it thus far.
His words, “I think when you are that age you have no fear whatsoever. Mason goes out there, enjoys playing and does what he does,”
“He’s done that since he was a kid. He’s been in this club his whole footballing life, and he has been taught and coached, but also has taught himself good habits about receiving the ball on the half-turn, if you want to turn a defender inside or outside.
“It’s the same with Anthony and Marcus, they all have that type of positive demeanour and mindset. To me, that’s football.
“I think the front three did a lot of good work in the lockdown to be physically ready. They are known as technical players, skilful players, but the first thing we always ask for is that mentality and humility to work hard.
“That comes first, and then all their skills and qualities in front of goal come. They create chances for themselves with their pressing and movement, it’s not just their skills.”
On Martial, “I’ve been very pleased with Anthony. You can see his work rate, his foundation,”
“There were some stats last season on our strikers, and he’s really taken up the challenge and answered the questions I asked of work rate. We have to start from the front with our pressing, and he’s really taken that on board.
“Marcus is still a young boy developing, too. All three of them can see a pass, can play a pass, they can score, they are physical, they can make runs and create chances for others. We are trying to develop them all of the time; this isn’t a one-day thing, or a ‘sometimes’ thing, this is about creating good habits.”
