Mason Greenwood is pleased with his performances in the Europa League and now wants to memorialize them by winning the trophy.

Despite being just 18 years of age, Mason Greenwood was one of Manchester United’s standout performers in their 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Scoring 10 league goals, Greenwood played a crucial part in helping Man United earn Champions League qualification.

The youngster is filled up to the brim with talent – he is pacy, has got a powerful shot in him, and has the ability to use both his legs efficiently. However, heading seems to be his weakness as he is yet to a header for the first team.

“In my area, I think in headed goals,” Greenwood replied when asked by UEFA.com what he could improve in his game.

“I’ve not scored a headed goal in the first team this season. So, hopefully, it would be nice to get one of them before the Europa League finishes.”

With five goals in seven games, Greenwood is Man United’s top-scorer in the Europa League. He is enjoying an immense season so far and looks destined to become a key player in the team for years to come.

“Obviously, I’ve done well in the Europa League this season. I’ve had good chances to play and I’ve taken my chances to play well.

“It’s a good way to get used to playing first-team football and it’s a good trophy to win as well.”
