According to Manchester United youngster, Mason Greenwood, his time at the club has been awesome as he aims for bigger things.

18-year-old forward Mason Greenwood has been with Manchester United since 2007.

And it was in 2018 when he debuted for the senior squad.

“I’ve been here since the Under-7s and worked through the ranks from Under-14s, Under-15s, Under-16s, and Under-23s and, finally, the first team,” he told the club’s official website.

“I’ve signed a professional contract and it means the world to me. I’ve been here so long and it’s what I worked up to and worked hard for.”

“Yeah, I’m going to show everyone what I can do in the times I come on, or if I play games, and in training, I’ll try my best and give it all for the team,” he continued.

“Yeah, my family is always helping me – if I’m low or if I’m down, they are always there to pick me back up. They are a real inspiration and I look up to them and I play for them.”

Greenwood explained: “When I was younger, in the Under-8s, Under-9s and Under-10s, he would take us on tours and he always used to help me and tell me what to do in the games. He used to challenge me.”

“Obviously, I was playing against bigger and older lads when I was younger, and it was always a challenge, and just a case of getting used to it really.”

“It helps now I’m in the first team so it is a bit similar really. I’m playing up there with the first team, so yes,” he added.

“Yeah. They’re all nice lads and they all really help you when you go up for the first time. Obviously, they know how it feels. It helps that they have been there and they helped me a lot.”
