Ole Gunnar Solskjaer welcomes goal scorer Mason Greenwood after a double | Football News


Mason Greenwood scored twice for Manchester United against Bournemouth

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Mason Greenwood “special” as the teenager scored twice in Manchester United’s 5-2 victory over Bournemouth.

Greenwood, 18, grabbed the first of his two goals with a powerful left-footed shot to bring the score 2-1 before showing his prowess on two feet by shooting the fourth with his right, bringing his total to 15 for the season in all competitions.

When asked if he had known a young player with so much power and accuracy in front of goal, Solskjaer replied, “No, I don’t think so.

“I saw Wayne Rooney at the same age and Mason is a specialized finisher and a specialized goalscorer, he knows exactly what to do with the ball when he is on the field.

“If he shoots, he will score, he will improve and his general game has improved. “

How far can Greenwood go? Solskjaer was asked if the youngster’s career will follow the same trajectory as former United Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo players, but he was discreet in his response: “I don’t want to compare him to Rooney or Ronaldo because it’s not fair and he’ll create his own career.

“He does it his way. Both have had fantastic careers and I’m sure if Mason continues to do the right things and make good decisions, he will also have a fantastic career.

“It’s Mason’s first season, but we always knew there was a special kid there. ”

In an electric performance, full of offensive flair, United extended their undefeated streak to 16 matches in all competitions.

” That’s exciting. It was excellent attacking football, with fantastic goals, ”added Solskjaer.

“It’s a shame that our fans can’t be here and are stimulating us because you can see the energy in the team, you can see the atmosphere within the team, but, if that crowd is there, it lifts you even more. It’s a game for the fans, it’s a game that Stretford End could have enjoyed. It could have been six or seven or eight so, of course, it’s a strange feeling to play in front of no one, but I think the team is doing exceptionally well.

“I think they are doing everything they can to create that atmosphere themselves. “
