Mason Greenwood could be the best player Manchester United have produced since George Best.

That is the big claim from talkSPORT host Jason Cundy, after the 18-year-old striker scored his 16th goal of the season in Thursday’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

A natural finisher with supreme confidence, Greenwood has the ability to score with either foot from long-range.

“I think Mason Greenwood could go down to be the greatest Man United academy player since George Best,” Cundy declared on The Sports Bar.

“He is looking more and more like a player that you think, ‘wow’.

“Every game I see, he gets better and better and better.

“He is better than Marcus Rashford, he will be better than David Beckham, he will be better than Ryan Giggs.

“We are looking at the best academy player since George Best.

“Of course it’s early days but from what I have seen from this young man, the composure, the ability to take it with both feet, the way he changes direction…

“Young players have this air of unbelievable confidence and he will know one day what failure does feel like because he hasn’t tasted it yet. But wow, he is something else.

“We talk about Phil Foden. He could be better than Foden.

“Imagine what he’ll be like in five years? He could be the best Man United have ever produced.”


Greenwood is like Rooney and Van Persie, will be ‘better than Rashford’, and has already scored 16 goals for Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Manchester United manager, said Greenwood is leaving him with no choice but to start him after his man of the match performance against Villa.

And he said the starlet can achieve whatever he wants in his career – so long as he maintains the right attitude and continues to work hard.

Solskjaer said: “I am doing my bit to help him but he has to do it – turn in performances in training, in games, live his life properly. It’s up to him how far he wants to go.

“He’s 18 and of course he will get better. He is a natural footballer and has been in the academy since he was a little boy. His dad showed me a picture of us together when he was seven.

“He knows we believe in him. You cannot leave players out when they score goals.”
