Mason Greenwood can be Man Utd’s next Robin van Persie

Mason Will John Greenwood is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and the England under-21 team

Greenwood began his career as a midfielder but gradually evolved into a centre forward. In May 2018, former Manchester United player Clayton Blackmore said: “He’s great on the ball and very good with both feet. He’s the first person I’ve seen that takes penalties and free-kicks with his wrong foot.

And defender Luke Shaw believes Greenwood can go on to have a similar impact in his career, praising the youngster’s abilities with both feet.

“He’s had a fantastic first season in the first team. He’s clearly a natural goalscorer,” Shaw wrote in his weekly lockdown diary.

He’s still got so much to learn, but if he carries on working hard and pushes himself every day then I don’t see why we can’t see him turn into another Robin van Persie or a player of that style that’ll score lots of goals for us.
