Despite a rather underwhelming campaign last season, one of the bright sparks to come out for Manchester United was the emergence of highly-rated teenager Mason Greenwood.
The 17-year-old made his debut in the Champions League away win against PSG, and then rounded off the season with a start against Cardiff in the final game of the Premier League.
Now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed via the club’s official website that Greenwood will “definitely” be given more first-team opportunities next season and suggested his performance against the Bluebirds was a real indicator of his potential.

After hearing the news Greenwood would be given the chance to shine, United fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the matter and many were understandably delighted by Solskjaer’s words.
Supporters of the Manchester side insisted the teenager was the future of the club and urged the side’s boss to start him next season.
Indeed, some even felt that Greenwood was already the best forward at the club and was “better than half of the senior players”.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Best forward at the club.
