Solskjaer confirms role for Mason Greenwood at Man Utd this season

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been speaking to the press ahead of Sunday’s eye-catching Premier League opener against Chelsea.

The Norwegian has spoken about teenage sensation Mason Greenwood, who many expect to be given Romelu Lukaku’s minutes in the side this season after no attacking replacement was signed.

The 17-year-old had an excellent pre-season campaign, and looks one of the most exciting prospects to come out of the club’s academy in recent years.

Greenwood’s classy winning goal against Inter Milan was the highlight of the tour, and Solskjaer has confirmed that the youngster will be given opportunities to replicate that this season.

Greenwood could feature in the Premier League opener against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
