Mason Greenwood has a knack for scoring goals and is quite similar to Arjen Robben in terms of playing style, according to Nemanja Matic.

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood enjoyed a good form since the start of the season but it was not until after the three-month coronavirus hiatus that he started showing his true colors.

Scoring four goals and registering an assist in his last three games, Greenwood has been a major influence in helping Man United build a reputation for being an intimidating strikeforce.

Despite his young age, the 18 -year old looks to have already established himself as a reliable player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Nemanja Matic has nothing but praise for his young teammate suggesting that the teenager is as good a person as he is a footballer.

“There are not many players his age of that level. He has this natural instinct for goals,” Matic told Stats Perform News [via Goal].

“There is a big difference from now to six months ago. He is young and he is changing, and his approach to training and to everything is different. He’s a great person, great for the changing room.

“I don’t want to put too much pressure on the lad, but if I had to say someone [who reminds him of Greenwood the most], it would be [Arjen] Robben.”
