Marcus Rashford heaps the praise on Mason Greenwood
Speaking on BT Sport (h/t MEN), Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has hailed fellow attack partner Mason Greenwood after the Red Devils thrashed Bournemouth 5-2 on Saturday.
In what as an all-action affair, Greenwood, carrying on from the last game, brought us back on level terms after the Cherries had scored, with another brilliant effort.
He followed it up with another exceptional strike after the break at a time when Bournemouth were turning on the heat. With the two goals today, the teenager has now bagged 15 goals across all competitions.
And speaking after the match, Rashford, who also scored on the day, lavished praise on the teenage forward. (h/t MEN)
“Left foot, right foot, he can finish, both sides are comfortable for him, but I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on him. I’d just let him play his football and let him do what he does. He scores goals where other people can’t score goals and it’s a big bonus for us to have him in the squad.”
Indeed, Greenwood has shown how dangerous he can be with both his feet. In what is first full season with the senior team, the Englishman has stepped up in a brilliant manner, allaying fears that the team might struggle after letting both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave last summer.

With his two goals today, Greenwood has now scored 7 goals in the Premier League in 2019/20.
Among players aged 18 and younger, only Michael Owen (twice), Robbie Fowler and Wayne Rooney have scored more in a single PL campaign. Goes without saying, United have a special talent in their hands.
