Mason Greenwood celebrates his goal against Brighton

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the sky is the limit for teenage forward Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood’s opener in the midweek 3-0 win against Brighton took his Premier League goal tally for the season to six, the most by any player since Wayne Rooney scored nine goals for Everton during the 2003-04 season.

Asked about Greenwood at his pre-match news conference ahead of Saturday’s visit of Bournemouth, Solskjaer said: “We have done well over the course of the season giving him more exposure and game time.

“It’s not easy as a young boy, he could still play in the FA Youth Cup team! So he’s a young boy and we have to look after him.

“But from the bench or when he starts he is performing. He’s developed fantastically this season so the sky is the limit. It’s up to him. He knows what he can do, should do and must do to keep on playing [and getting chances].”
