Greedy Greenwood wants more goals for United
Mason Greenwood is greedy for goals and is determined to swell his Manchester United senior account.
The 18-year-old Reds Academy product crashed in his 11th goal of the campaign against Watford in our 3-0 Premier League win at Old Trafford.
Greenwood scored his opening first team goal back in September when he struck the winner in a 1-0 Europa league win against FC Astana.
He’s been bagging them at a pretty steady rate since, and our Bradford-born striker admits he wouldn’t have believed anyone who’d told him he’d have this many in February but doesn’t want to stop here.
“It was an amazing feeling scoring," Mason told MUTV after the full-time whistle. “I am just working hard for the team and I’m happy with my goals and I will carry on working hard to get more goals.”
“To have 11 goals is amazing and I want more and more. I will just carry on working hard.”
Whilst his own was a eye-catching hit, Greenwood also had praise for United’s other scorers in the victory.
Bruno Fernandes scored an impudent penalty to open his own Reds account and Anthony Martial scored his third in less than a week with a superb, audacious finish.
The Portuguese international midfielder has made a great impact since joining the club last month in the transfer window and provided the much-needed breakthrough in a tough opening 45 minutes for the Reds against the Hornets.
“We played well and it could have been more but we got the win. Getting three points was the most important thing,” added Greenwood.
“It was important to go in at half time ahead because it was an end to end game. So when Bruno went through and got the penalty, and then getting the goal it was a feeling of relief. It gave us a boost for the second half.
“Bruno’s a top person. He helps the team in every way possible both attacking and defending. It is great to have him at the club. It is great to see him playing at Old Trafford and score his first goal. I am sure there is going to be more of that.
“It looks like he has been here for years and he’s settled in nice and sweet. He is part of the group now and part of the team.
“Anthony’s goal was brilliant. What can you say? It is Anthony Martial. He did what he does in front of goal. Well done to him.”
