Interim Man Utd boss suggested that English footballer Mason Greenwood didn’t do enough in training to justify starting his first league game as interim manager, but the teen has certainly done enough in the Champions League to force him to rethink that position for his second.
A little about the topic
Ralf Rangnick said the 20-year-old needs to show in his training shows that he deserves playing time after starting on the bench for his first fix against Crystal Palace. Mason Greenwood, however, made a compelling argument against Young Boys in the middle of the week that he should partner with Ronaldo for a trip to Norwich this weekend. The difficulty of his finish against the Swiss side was such that his expected goals (xG) for the game were only 0.13 and yet he still managed to find a goal.
Unsurprisingly, Solskjaer claimed Mason was the best finisher at the club two years ago. With Cristiano, to do a good job of dispelling any myths that he cannot play the pressure side with his last two gigs, he is guaranteed a place in the starting XI. With Ralf’s penchant for playing with two at the top, the question now is who will be his partner. Most of Mason’s first team level performances were on the right, with doubts about his physical ability to lead the line as No.9 at such a young age. This kind of Ralf seems to hold up as well, despite only having a few workouts to see Mason in action.
What did Rangnick say about Mason Greenwood?
Ralf Rangnick said Wednesday night that he thinks Greenwood is more than nine and a half. Mason Greenwood can play as a striker, he can also come from the wing, he can play with another striker, he is very technical, left foot, right foot. Sometimes Greenwood looks a little … not at the athletic level. Ralf thinks they should develop him there physically, but technically anything he can do with the ball is outstanding. According to Ralf Rangnick he doesn’t worry about his technical level. they need to develop him physically and mentally in order to become the strongest version of themselves and if they manage to do this, he can become a regular player and a very valuable player for their club in the future.
