Guy Utd striker Mason Greenwood “will be as good as” Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, according to Simon Jordan.
The 19-year-old has scored an objective in each of the Red Devils first 3 Premier League matches, including the winning goal in a narrow 1-0 success over Wolves.
Greenwood has actually become a regular for Man Utd over the previous number of seasons, scoring 12 goals in 52 looks in all competitors in the 2020/21 campaign.
There is a genuine feeling that Greenwood could explode this season if he gets a run of matches in the beginning XI, which is appearing like a significantly hard job after the finalizings of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However previous Crystal Palace chairman Jordan reckons Greenwood “will be as good as” PSG super star Mbappe in the future.
Jordan said on talkSPORT: “Youre taking a look at players like Jude Bellingham who is significantly younger, Bukayo Saka at Arsenal and Jadon Sancho at Man United, whos not truly getting a starting line-up opportunity– albeit there was one yesterday– you take a look at it and say the best gamers ought to bet their nation.
” I know there was a circumstance a year ago where he didnt act himself extremely well with Phil Foden– however thats a year earlier. Hes as great and outstanding as anyone thats around today.
” This young boy will be as great as Kylian Mbappe and for him to be left out from the England team there should be something were missing out on.
” Maybe we didnt get the memo about best gamers being called or whatever it might be or perhaps theres a reason behind why were not being told.
” It beggars belief that a player like this, with this level of electrical energy and excitement cant get in.”
Previous Man Utd striker Andy Cole does not believe Greenwood desires to be a No. 9 for the Red Devils and would choose to play off the primary striker.
” I dont believe Mason wishes to play as a centre forward. Thats a tough, hard function,” Cole stated.
” To be a No. 9, thats pressure. Being off the right or the left is various. Being a No. 9 at Old Trafford, thats pressure.
” With Masons talent, he can play throughout the line. However talking to a few of the coaches, like Fletch [ Darren Fletcher], I do not believe hes fixed as playing as a No. 9.
” Its hard at such a young age. To be Manchester Uniteds No. 9 at that age is effort. I dont believe theyre taking a look at Mason as a No. 9 but hell be in the team and bet sure.”
Guy Utd require the old Roy Keane more than Ronaldo …
” With Masons skill, he can play across the line., I dont think hes fixed as playing as a No. 9.
To be Manchester Uniteds No. 9 at that age is difficult work. I dont believe theyre looking at Mason as a No. 9 however hell be in the group and play for sure.”
