Manchester United defender, Harry Maguire has said that teenage striker, Mason Greenwood is going ti have a big future at the club.
The former Leicester City man said he know what Premier League defenders are going through whenever he had to face Greenwood during training sessions. So, he imagined it must be a nightmare for defenders in games.
Speaking to talkSPORT live, Maguire, who will be in the starting line up for United against his former club ahead of the final day meeting in the Premier League at the Old Trafford said Greenwood may have a key role to play against the Foxes as they aimed to keep hold of their Champions League place.
“When he gets in that box and he can maneuver his feet and he can maneuver it to either foot, he’s a nightmare for defenders. I know from training,” he said.
“But he’s been excellent, it’s great to see him playing with confidence. He always seems to be on the scoresheet, especially since we’ve returned from lockdown.
“He’s a special talent and he’s going to have a big future at this club.”
There will be more games for Mason Greenwood – Solksjaer
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has said t
here’ll be more games for Greenwood him.
The manager has shown a lot of faith in the young lad, hoping he’ll score more goals for
the club before the season ends.
United is still in the Europa League where they have a 5-1 advantage over Austrian Wien in the last 16.
“Hopefully we’ll have five more games
and I’m sure that if he plays five games he’ll score more. You expect it from him, when he’s in and around the box you expect him to hit the target. One was blocked today by the defender, Ogbonna, and the other one he scored with, so we just have to keep teeing him up and giving him opportunities.
”With Mason, you know when he’s had a good sleep or he’s stayed up late [before training] playing on the PlayStation [laughs] as then he may not hit the ball as cleanly! What he did today, he’s done it time and time again. Every time he finishes, you can see he’s an exceptional finisher. It’s no surprise when he hits the back of the net as he’s that good a finisher.”
What Manchester United need to qualify for Champions League
A draw is enough to secure the spots for the Reds Devils, as Leicester will be aiming for maximum win.
Chelsea, on the other hand, will want a win against Europa League-chasing Wolves at the Stamford Bridge.
Wolves, on the other hand, as well wants to keep the sixth spot in order to secure their passage to the European second-tier club competition ahead of Tottenham Hotspurs.
So, it all comes down to Manchester United’s crunch game with Leicester City on Sunday as they want a positive result that will seal a top-four place and subsequent qualification for next season’s Champions League.
It will be termed a successful season for the Red Devils after eaten up the ground on a Foxes side that did look Liverpool’s main title challengers much earlier in the campaign.
Everything is now in United’s hands going into a contest with a team that poses a real threat, including the Premier League’s top goalscorer in Jamie Vardy.
