A hope expressed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Manchester United manager hopes his young striker, Mason Greenwood can develop quickly and become a figure he can rely on.
The 17-year-old striker steals the attention of Manchester United supporters after packing more than 30 goals in the Red Devils junior team. Therefore, Solskjaer gave the striker his first debut in the last match of last season.
This season, Greenwood again involved Solskjaer in the MU first team. He even has routinely played the striker as a substitute in the Red Devils attack.
For this reason Solskjaer mentioned that he had high hopes for the young attacker. "Mason is not accustomed to getting minutes of playing as little as this," Solskjaer told Manchester United's official website.
Solskjaer stressed that he deliberately did not immediately give many hours of play to Greenwood. He wants the player to integrate slowly into his team.
"He [Greenwood] used to playing every week on the U-18 Team or on our reserve team. Now he only gets the chance to play for 30 minutes in our team. "
"This is a learning process for him. We do not expect him to play in five successive matches, but he is a coating and an option for our attack line besides Anthony and Marcus. "
On this occasion, Solskjaer also revealed rumors about his two defenders, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian. He said Darmian is likely to leave his team this summer.
"I can see if Matteo will leave, because there is very much interest for him from the Italian teams."
"Marcos will stay with us. So we do have fewer team members at the moment, but our team remains strong and has coating options on all fronts, "he stressed.
Manchester United have confirmed they will lend one defender to Italy.
They loaned Chris Smalling for one season to AS Roma.
