Manchester United youngster, Mason Greenwood plays like Jermain Defoe, Ben Foster has said. Ben recently revealed that Greenwood is the type of forward that p*sses a goalkeeper off.
According to him, Mason is a nightmare for goalkeepers because his fast thinking and predatory instincts always aid him to make a fool of the goalies he plays against.
He added that MUFC gave several talented forwards in today’s team, but the one that stands out is Mason Greenwood.
His words, “United have some really talented forwards in today’s team, and the one that stands out is Mason Greenwood,”
“A massive thing for a striker, which p*sses a goalkeeper off more than anything, is where they shoot without you even thinking they’re about to kick it. They’re running with it and suddenly, with no backlift, BANG, like Jermaine Defoe… They pull it out of nowhere and catch the keeper by surprise.”
“Greenwood has got that, but with both feet as well, which is special. He cannot only kick it really well and really hard with both feet, but he’s so accurate, too. For a young lad to be able to do that at that age is very, very promising.
“The goal he scored against me last season was a thing of beauty. He just took it down and BANG, goal. I was thinking: Woah. Fair enough. Fair dos lad. I’ve played the game a long time and there’s not many players who can do that.”
