Photo: Angel Gomes thanks Mason Greenwood for dedicating goal to departing Man Utd starlet

Departing Manchester United star Angel Gomes has thanked Mason Greenwood for dedicating his goal to him in tonight’s 3-0 victory over Brighton at the AMEX stadium. 

Greenwood opened the scoring in a scintillating Reds display, justifying Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to start him on the right-flank ahead of Daniel James.

The teenage sensation showed tremendous skill to deceive the Brighton defence before firing a shot into the bottom corner.

Greenwood celebrated his 13th goal of the season by making the letter ‘A’ with his hands. It has now become clear that this was a tribute to academy teammate Angel Gomes who is set to leave the club when his contract expires at midnight.

United could not agree a new contract with the talented playmaker and we are now waiting on a decision on his next move after he grew frustrated at a lack of game time under Solskjaer.

Gomes, who has been at United’s academy with Greenwood since the age of six, posted an Instagram story thanking his friend for the gesture:

“No words! I love you bro. Special, special player, thanks for the dedicated goal,” the caption read along with a love heart emoji.
