Arsenal legend Ian Wright insists Mason Greenwood can rise to become one of the Premier League superstars in the near future.
Greenwood’s impressive form at Man United earned him a place in England’s initial squad for Euro 2020. However, Greenwood was ruled out due to injury before joining the team. But not being able to attend Euro 2020 is also a good thing for Greenwood as he has time to prepare for the new season.
Wright: Greenwood will become a superstar in MU
When told that only four players had scored more goals than Greenwood in the Premier League (Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Wayne Rooney and Nicolas Anelka) before turning 20, Ian Wright replied:
“When you look at what Greenwood is doing, the numbers are really impressive. You look at the players who scored more goals than Greenwood on that list and they are all phenomenal players. What they don’t have to go through is playing at a huge club like Manchester United from a young age. They didn’t rise from that academy and go to the first team.
Greenwood makes good performances and gets those stats. It’s scary to think about what he’s going to do in his career because it’s so much now. He comes into the first team with a lot of pressure, and he’s dealing with it very well.
Greenwood is getting ready. I don’t think it will take him long to surpass the others on this list.”
Legendary Andy Cole thinks that Greenwood can hardly start regularly in the role of a striker of Man United.
“I don’t think Greenwood wants to play as a striker. It is a difficult role. Being a striker brings great pressure. Kicking at Old Trafford is even more pressure.
With Greenwood’s talent, he can play in any position up front. But I don’t think he should play as a fixed striker. It’s very difficult for a young player. I don’t think they see Greenwood as a number 9 but he can definitely play.”
