Manchester United played a 1-1 draw with Young Boys in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday.

Mason Greenwood opened the scoring already in the 9th minute, however, by the end of the first-half Fabian Rieder equalised the score.

After the game United coach Ralf Rangnick raved about Greenwood’s overall skill set.

“I think today he also showed, not only because of that beautiful goal but the way he set up the opp for Juan Mata was brilliant,” Rangnick said of Greenwood.

 

“He’s a massive talent. Left foot, right foot, good on the ball, also the way that he set up the goal for Fred on Sunday.

 

“Still, it’s about continuity, he has to develop physically but technically, for his age, he is a great player. My job is to develop him, to make an athlete out of him, and if he manages to do that can be a regular player for this club.”

The German tactician also claimed that Erling Haaland is a sharpshooting striker, but Greenwood is way more versatile.

“Erling [Haaland], for me, is a target striker, who can play as a single striker like a target man or in a 4-4-2,” the manager assessed.

 

“I think Mason [Greenwood] is more of a nine-and-a-half, he can play as a striker, he can also come from the wing, he can play with another striker, he is very technical, left foot, right foot.

 

“Sometimes he looks a bit not on an athletic level. I think we have to develop him there physically, but technically all the things he can do with the ball are outstanding.

 

“I am not so much worried about his technical level. We need to develop him physically and mentally and if we manage to do that he can become a regular player and an invaluable player for our club in the future.”
