Bruno Fernandes lauds ‘quality’ Man Utd starlet Mason Greenwood… and warns teenager will only get better

BRUNO FERNANDES has hailed the star quality of Mason Greenwood as Manchester United build a team for the future.

With 17 goals and five assists it has been some breakthrough season for the 18-year-old.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed him as the best finisher at the club early in the season and he has not let the boss down.

Now he is preparing for a Europa league semi-final out here in Cologne against Sevilla on Sunday.

And according to team-mate Fernandes, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Fernandes said: “I think Mason has done a great season, of course. He’s young and he has great numbers this season.

“The age is just a number and you see Mason has done very well.

“He can do much more because of the qualities he has and he still has to grow up physically. He did fantastically this season and he will get better.

“He needs to play more and get more confidence from his team-mates and the staff and I think he will get much better because he has that quality.”

Greenwood is part of a three-pronged attacke with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial while Fernandes pulls the strings behind them.

They have made United favourites to lift the Europa League.

The Red Devils beat FC Copenhagen 1-0 in the quarter-finals with an extra time penalty from Fernandes.

Now Fernandes says they have to push on land some silverware as a catalyst for next season.

He said: “I think it’s so important to win because every player needs to understand how it is to win a trophy for Manchester United.

“For the coach, it will be important and for the players because I think we’ve done very well until now and I think if we finish with a trophy, it will not be perfect, but it will be a good year for us.

“Manchester United needs to come back again to win some trophies and fight for the European competitions and also the league.

“Finishing well now is a good start for next season.

“Of course, the Premier League is one of the trophies we want to win and I think to win the Europa League would be good for the mentality of winning trophies and fighting with the top clubs.

“For next season, if we can win this, it will be important.”
