Mason Greenwood reveals Solskjaer advice before Man United breakthrough

2 min read

Mason Greenwood has heaped praise on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for aiding his development during his breakthrough season.

The 18-year-old has established himself as a first-team regular after netting 18 times in all competitions with the majority of his game time coming on the right wing.

Greenwood’s form was recognised with a call-up to the senior England national team for the first time. He could make his debut against Iceland or Denmark this week.

The youngster can expect greater challenges next season after United secured a place in the Champions League next season thanks to an excellent spell in the second half of the season.

Greenwood credited Solskjaer for helping him develop and believes learning from the former United striker has been extremely beneficial.

“Ole is a big part of my game,” he said. “He’s helped me and got me to where I am now.

“He gave me a chance to prove to everyone what I can do. I’m glad he’s there and he’s a good manager.

“He knows what he’s talking because he’s been a good goalscorer for United. When he’s talking to me I’m always listening and taking his advice.”

Greenwood revealed advice from Solskjaer helped transition from youth football to the very highest level.

He said: “It was from the manager really, from Ole.

“He says to all of the young players coming up: ‘Go out there and play with a smile on your face. You play for one of the biggest clubs in the world so just take it on the chin. Go out there and express yourself. Think about it as it’s any other normal game, you’ve been waiting for this moment your entire life so go out and enjoy it.'”
