Mason Greenwood is ready to get the ball rolling once again after being voted August’s Player of the Month for his excellent start to the campaign.
Mason Greenwood has spoken out over his brilliant to the season, shortly after being voted as August’s Player of the Month for Manchester United. The attacker insists he is ready to perform well once again as the Red Devils restart their Premier League season this weekend.
Greenwood has been one of the standout players at Man United during these early parts of the campaign. In three matches, the forward has scored three goals, starring in wins over Leeds United and Wolves.
In a recent interview with club media, the youngster commented on his excellent start to the season and how it was an improvement from the previous campaign. “Yeah, it’s been a good start obviously.
“Three games and three goals, it’s something I’ve been wanting to do. I’ve been wanting to score goals from the start. I had a bit of a slow start last season but hopefully, I can kick on,” said the attacker.
The return of Cristiano Ronaldo has understandably added a lot of excitement over Manchester United’s attacking department. Greenwood, for one, has been widely compared to a younger version of the Portuguese sensation.
With 32 goals in 108 competitive encounters, Greenwood’s productivity already makes him one of the best-attacking assets at Old Trafford. The player, though, has admitted that he is not focused on scoring goals, and his productivity is only a by-product of the natural game he wishes to pursue every match.
When asked about his goalscoring traits, the attacker replied: “No, I don’t like to think about it. I don’t like to think about scoring really, I just like to go out in the game, feel relaxed and if I score, I score. It makes me happy but I don’t like to think about it sometimes.”
It is the kind of mentality Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would certainly approve, especially with Ronaldo being brought in to alleviate the scoring woes and spearhead the Manchester United attack.
These are indeed exciting times for the Red Devils, who restart their Premier League campaign on Saturday, as they play hosts to Newcastle United, a game where Ronaldo is poised to make his second debut for the club, in front of a packed Old Trafford.
