Ian Wright reveals what Sir Alex Ferguson has told him about Mason Greenwood
The young wonder has started the season in remarkable style, scoring in three progressive matches, including the late winning goal against Wolves before the international break which expanded United’s unbeaten run from home to a record 28 matches.
Greenwood has driven the line with unique excellence in the nonattendances of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani for different reasons during the developmental phases of the campaign, yet Ronaldo‘s return could see him shunted out to the wing.
Notwithstanding where plays, nonetheless, Arsenal football legend Wright trusts Ronaldo, who is prepared to make his second debut for United at home to Newcastle on Saturday, can just emphatically affect Greenwood positvely, whom Sir Alex Ferguson has been secretly raving about.
Wright disclosed to Premier League Productions:
‘The only thing I can equate Ronaldo’s return to is just knowing that Dennis Bergkamp was coming for us at Arsenal and how that changed us.
‘I cannot even get into the realms of thinking what that is going to do for their academy players, especially someone like Greenwood.
‘He can just watch now. Cristiano Ronaldo will probably want to impart and tell him what he needs to do.
‘I was speaking to Sir Alex the other day, we were playing golf and he mentioned about Mason Greenwood being one of the best they’ve ever had out of their academy.
‘Now you put one of the best players that’s ever played for the football club, he’s come back as a world icon to play with him and alongside him it’s frightening what this guy could turn into.
‘The mentality of him rubbing off on people could be the difference for Manchester United.’
