Speaking to the media on Sunday, Ralf Rangnick said: “Mason Greenwood did so well at the start of the [2021/22] season.
“I think he scored three or four goals in the first three games, he’s a very gifted homegrown player and I would love to give him more game-time in the future.
“But, of course, he has to deserve his game-time in training and, therefore, it was good to have him on the bench and bring him on the pitch.”
Greenwood will be in contention to start against Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday with Manchester United already securing a first-place finish in Group F.
The 20-year-old forward came off the bench in the second half in Rangnick’s first official game in charge against Crystal Palace on Sunday, providing an assist to Fred’s winning goal.
