Sir Alex Ferguson has big expectations from United teenager Mason Greenwood and believes he’ll be a top player in the future.
In an interview with SportBible, Sir Alex Ferguson was asked who he regards as the best young players in football and the Scot said: “Mason Greenwood, in my opinion, is going to be a top player.
“He’s got the coolness and the coldness of a great striker. He never panics, his shots are always low, he’s always inside the posts. He’s shown great qualities.
“He’s younger than the boy Phil Foden, who is the one player that has come through at Man City who has taken the place of David Silva.
“He’s been tremendous. Those two are the best [young players] in England.”
Greenwood has taken big strides forward since making his Manchester United debut in 2018 and performed really well in recent seasons. And following a slow start to this season, the 19-year-old now has 12 goals in all competitions – including 6 in the Premier League since the start of April.
