Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hails specialist goalscorer Mason Greenwood. Greenwood scored twice for Manchester United against Bournemouth.
Solskjaer hailed “special” Mason Greenwood as the teenager scored twice in Manchester United’s 5-2 win over Bournemouth.
The 18-year-old Greenwood grabbed the first of his two goals with a powerful left-footed strike to make it 2-1 before showing his two-footed prowess by firing home the fourth with his right, taking his tally to 15 for the season across all competitions.
Asked if he had known a young player with such power and precision in front of goal, Solskjaer said: “No, I don’t think I have.
“I have seen Wayne Rooney at the same age and Mason is a specialist finisher and specialist goalscorer he knows exactly what to do with the ball when he’s on the pitch.
“If he shoots he will score, he is going to get better and his general play has improved.”
“He’s doing it his own way. Both of those have had fantastic careers. I’m sure if Mason keeps on doing the right things and making good decisions he’ll have a fantastic career too.
