Marcus Rashford has labelled Manchester United’s 17-year-old Mason Greenwood as ‘frightening’ after the youngster scored his first goal for the club in a pre-season friendly against Leeds United.
Greenwood, who has been promoted to the first team on multiple occasions under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, also has a chance of starting in United’s Premier League clash against Chelsea, Solskjær told the BBC.
Rashford’s first-team breakthrough can provide inspiration to Greenwood and other talents at United and the 21-year-old believes no other club is better at giving young players a chance than the Red Devils.
Speaking about Greenwood after the win over Leeds, Rashford told Sky Sports: “You have to understand people’s characteristics. He’s quite a laid-back person, so I don’t think it does him any good to put things in his head constantly. But his natural abilities are frightening and the manager is doing a good job guiding him in the right direction.
The more he does that the more his talent will come through. Mentally for the young lads, it does a whole lot for them,” Rashford added. “They know if they play well and they perform they’re going to get a chance and it’s nothing to do with how old they are. The club’s legacy of bringing players through is as good as anybody’s.”
