‘Finishing is a joke’: Man Utd legend heaps praise on teenage starlet Mason Greenwood

Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole is a huge fan of teenage sensation Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood has scored in each of his last two Old Trafford starts, digging the Reds out of holes against weaker opposition in FC Astana in the Europa League and League One Rochdale in the League Cup.

Despite being just 17 years old, the academy graduate is arguably the most dangerous attacking player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer currently has at his disposal.

Solskjaer has already described Greenwood as the most natural finisher at the club, and he evidenced his ability in front of goal by scoring 26 goals across the youth teams.

We expect Greenwood to start in the huge Premier League clash at home to Arsenal on Monday night, due to injuries to forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

The Reds should not have to rely on the youngster to deliver so early on in his career, but Solskjaer is desperately lacking in attacking options after Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were not replaced in the summer transfer.
