According to Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood’s finishing ability is the best he’s ever seen in a teammate. Pogba on Greenwood – ‘I think he is the best finisher that I have seen’.
Manchester United youth Mason Greenwood has three goals in three Premier League appearances this season.
And this consistent goalscoring streak has afforded the 19-year-old a blistering start to the new 2021-22 English Premier League season.
Meanwhile, throughout his career, midfielder Paul Pogba has had the opportunity to play alongside many legendary forwards. He has teamed up with greats like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku, Paulo Dybala, and Kylian Mbappe (for France’s national team).
Pogba on Greenwood: I Think He Is the Best Finisher That I Have Seen
And amidst such superstar competition, Mason Greenwood still stands out as the most natural in front of goal for Pogba.
“I think he is the best finisher that I have seen, that I have trained with so far,” the Frenchman revealed in an interview with Stadium Astro in football today.
“For now, he is the youngest. But he is just unbelievable and I wish he can score more goals and improve and just help us to win the league again. He is very young and very talented, so I want to push him again to become better and better.”
Greenwood’s apparent lack of a weaker foot allows him to shift the ball to either his left or right side.
This makes his next move a nightmare for defenders and goalkeepers to predict, or so his skilled teammate Pogba theorizes.
“I think he is more left-footed and dribbles more with his left. But to shoot, he shoots with both and his finishing is unreal,” Pogba said.
