Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Mason Greenwood ready for England call-up. “If you can handle playing for United, then you can handle playing for any team.”
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes 18-year-old Mason Greenwood is ready to play for England at senior level.
Greenwood dazzled with a double in United’s 5-2 Premier League win over Bournemouth on Saturday, taking his tally to 15 goals for the season in all competitions.
Greenwood was hailed as a “specialist finisher” by Solskjaer, and the United boss believes the England U21 forward can handle the pressure of playing in Gareth Southgate’s senior national side.
“When you play for Manchester United, I think that’s a test that’s good enough and difficult enough,” said Solskajer.
“If you can handle playing for United, then you can handle playing for any team and Mason’s got the qualities that not many others have.
“So he could play for England full team or the U21s, I don’t really mind. I know he’s doing well for us and it’s great to have him here.”
