Ex-Reds name their Young Player of the Season
Our MUTV Group Chat panel is divided on who should be named the Premier League Young Player of the Season, after four Manchester United players were nominated for the 2019/20 award.
The four United players face competition from Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic (both Chelsea) in the public poll, which you can register your vote in now.
In today’s episode of MUTV Group Chat, our panel of former players offer their reaction to the news and explain their picks for the prestigious prize…
Ben Thornley: “If you had asked me in the first half of the season then it would have been Marcus Rashford, but obviously with his injury, I think it is very, very difficult to look beyond what Mason Greenwood has done since he has come into the first team. As a young lad he has scored 17 goals so far this season and doesn't look fazed at all. He takes each step as it comes, from the 18s into the 23s and now into the first team. He is completely unaffected, gets on with his job and does it to the best of his abilities, so for me it would be Mason Greenwood but it is a tight call between them all.”
David May: “It is quite something to score 17 goals when you are 18. When Marcus got injured and he came in, Mason stepped up the plate right away and his ability to score goals out of nothing is scary. Most times he is quiet in games and then he will just come alive to bang one in, or two in. He has been absolutely class and a breath of fresh air. For me I would give it to him because of his age, and also because of the pressure he was under because of Marcus missing those games with his back injury.”
