It’s getting very hard for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Mason Greenwood out of his Manchester United squad admits the manager.
Greenwood made his full debut at the end of last season, and the 18-year-old has since started to appear for the first team squad every now and then.
Greenwood has scored back-to-back in the last two games he appeared for Man United. The youngster has started in seven games this season – five in the Europa League, one in the League Cup and one in the Premier League.
Solskjaer is thus struggling to find a reason to drop him.
He’s making it hard for me to leave him out,” the United boss said.
“I remember when I came to the club and I kept scoring a few goals and even though I felt I could have performed better, the manager’s comments were ‘it’s hard to keep players who score out of the team’.
“It’s very, very difficult now to put a team out there without having Mason in my mind.”
United face Colchester at Old Trafford on Wednesday with a place in the League Cup semi-finals on the line, and Solskjaer is not treating the game lightly.
