Michael Owen claims Mason Greenwood has a “rare ability a bit like Robbie Fowler used to have”.

Manchester United youngster impressed again last weekend, scoring his second goal of the new season against Southampton.

Speaking about Greenwood, Owen shared his praise for the 19-year-old and compared him to the Red Devils legend Fowler.

“When I look at goal scorers.. there are so many different facets to goal scoring,” Owen said on Premier League Productions after the Saints match.

“One of the things he’s [Greenwood] got is that he can hit it really, really hard but keep his accuracy. Not many people can do that. I was much more accuracy than power. Some people just go for power, he’s got the rare ability a bit like Robbie Fowler used to have, that he can be so accurate but hits the ball so hard as well, and with either foot. He’s a fantastic finisher.”
