He also revealed which player he is most excited to make a connection on the pitch with.

Mason Greenwood’s comments about the work he was putting in in pre-season should have Manchester United fans very excited.

He said that he has been working on his strength and speed, and it’s definitely noticeable. While he will always be feared for his incredible finishing, he is starting to accelerate away from defenders in a way that he wasn’t when he first broke into the senior team.

Mason Greenwood on pre-season work

He said: “I feel like I’ve had a good pre-season working with the fitness staff here. We worked on a bit of my strength and a bit of my speed.

“It all plays out into the start of the season so I’m happy with what I’ve done. It’s all about the next game.”

He also discussed how excited he is to get a chance to play with Jadon Sancho at United.

He said: “We’re bringing in world class footballers like Raphael Varane, and obviously bringing Jadon in as well. They’re both good assets to the team and I’m sure they’ll do excellent this season.

“But to play with Jadon, a young forward, and when Rashy comes back… It will be nice to play with them all together.”

Two goals in two for Mason Greenwood

Greenwood has got off to a great start in the Premier League this season, bagging two nice goals in two games.

He started the first game of the season (against Leeds) as the central striker, and played excellently. The following week against Southampton, he was pushed out wide, but still managed to come up with a goal that was set up by Paul Pogba.

Speaking after the Southampton game, Roy Keane said that his only fear for Greenwood’s development is playing in too many positions and failing to lock down a spot in the team as a result.
