Man Utd: Mason Greenwood's finishing similar to Robin van Persie's - Solskjaer

Man Utd: Mason Greenwood's finishing similar to Robin van Persie's - Solskjaer

I think we're finding the right balance between playing, resting him and training him.

"If that takes a couple of years for [Greenwood] to really come through it is worth it for us". "As a young boy you expect ups and downs and he's had some downs - but I think he is on his way up again". "They seem to have turned a corner since, they have been controlling games and we are going to need loads of energy to press really well".

When suggested that Greenwood's ability in front of goal was similar to Van Persie, Solskjaer replied: "Definitely".

"He is very composed as well with his finishing", he said of Greenwood, who last month signed a new and improved contract until at least 2023.

On the potential to rotate now, he continued: 'We want to win the group but travelling away to Astana was not one to look forward to in having Villa, Spurs, City in the week after, so maybe we'll rest a few players for that game'. "You can't just turn that switch off and on, you've got to perform every day if you're going to be accepted in a place like this". "I thought they were a good team last season, I remember thinking we were lucky to beat them", he said.


The Belgium born Brazilian completes just 73.4% of his passes, according to WhoScored.com, leaving him 198th in the list of Premier League players, and manages just 1.2 key passes per game. I tell you what, if everyone's talking about United winning the whole thing, both those sides will be saying it too because they were excellent. He's doing his finishing practices.

Three very good goals, a fluency of attacking football, and qualification for the knock-out phase of the Europa League secured with two games to spare made for a fun occasion at Old Trafford.

"[Whether] that is a game with his mates in the park or a cup final he will finish the same". In that time he has dropped down to the reserves, playing and scoring a later victor for the under-23s in the EFL Trophy against Doncaster.

"That was more important for him to play that game and 90 minutes to be ready for these games instead of being on the bench the day after against Chelsea".
