Teddy Sheringham isn’t worried that Mason Greenwood is just playing a role in supporting Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Greenwood invaded the United team as a wing, but has long been considered their future at the center forward.
The 19-year-old played against Leeds United on the first day of the Premier League season and won 5-1.
However, five of his subsequent six starts in all tournaments saw Greenwood placed on the right wing. He also occupied the sides after getting off the bench with the defeat of the EFL Cup to West Ham.
Since Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford, Greenwood hasn’t added to the three-goal count for the quarter.
Ronaldo isn’t the only one in the way of Greenwood. Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial also have a chance on the front lines, but Marcus Rashford will soon recover from the injury.
Greenwood won 11.87% of the 337 touches in the opposition box between 2021 and 2010, ranking fifth in United after Marshall, Cavani, Ronaldo and now Daniel James. It is ranked.
However, England’s 24 shots were improved only by Bruno Fernandes (29). Bruno Fernandes is also the only United player who has played more than eight times.
Indeed, former United forward Sheringham, who was featured in 634 minutes and chased only David de Gia, Fernandez and Paul Pogba, felt that Greenwood would benefit from being in the middle of the action. increase.
“I think he’s a great player,” Sheringham told Stats Perform. “He is clearly not playing in his natural position as number 9 or 10 at this time, but he is still a young man.
“He is still learning his trades, and you want to learn your trades on the pitch rather than watching the game as a sub waiting to get into that position off the pitch, Not your position.
“He’s still learning games and is involved in these big games. That experience can be great for him.”
Greenwood played for 89 minutes with Villarreal on Wednesday, during which he made one attempt and created two chances.
He was then replaced by Jesse Lingard. Jesse Lingard helped Ronaldo’s key winner with his final 2-1 victory on the Champions League group stage.
