Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with how quickly Mason Greenwood has been adapting to his role.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has high hopes for Mason Greenwood as he expects the 18-year old to make a permanent place for himself in the Manchester United line up.

Mason Greenwood, who earlier became the youngest goalscorer for Man United in European competitions at 17 years and 353 days, has received plaudits from critics and fans alike after putting some impressive shifts this season.

Recently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised the forward for showing quick adaptiveness to the Premier League. He also assured that he trusts Greenwood and will continue to give him more playing time.

“He’s grown a lot,” Solskjaer said as Goal reports.

“He’s physically and mentally more robust, which, of course, you expect from an 18-year-old. He has had more or less 12 months with us now and he’s grown fantastically.

“His confidence and performances in the top games, even in the Premier League, he’s done well,” the Norwegian added.

“As you said, he’s played a lot of the cup games and he’s done well. So, we’ll just keep continuing to give him more and more until he is a regular. Because that will happen.”
