'Mason will definitely play more games'
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has predicted striker Mason Greenwood will get more first-team action in the upcoming season, after breaking through under the Manchester United boss earlier this year.
“You saw Mason in the last training session,”Solskjaer told journalists at his first press conference of the tour.
“Bang, bang, bang. Three goals.
“He could have had five goals against Cardiff but didn’t score. If a striker gets into a good vein of form, he will score goals.
“Mason will definitely play more games. He has grown over the summer and I think his confidence has grown too after the Cardiff game, as he was our best player.”
“Yes, 100 per cent. For me, he'll definitely get more game time. Everyone's just enjoying watching him develop and grow, you know, because that step up from Academy football to men's football can be difficult.
“He had a good game against Cardiff on the last game of the season, so that's put him in good stead for the position that he's in now.
“So hopefully he just keeps on going and keeps working hard, and then I don't see why he can't play.”
He won the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award last term following a tremendous season, which included highlights such as a hat-trick in the 4-3 FA Youth Cup victory over Chelsea, and two excellent free-kicks in an Under-18 League Cup triumph at Liverpool.
