Manchester United star Mason Greenwood is capable of emulating the achievements of Ballon d’Or winner Michael Owen, the club have been told.
Greenwood has been a revelation this season for Manchester United and hos performances this season has meant that he is now an invaluable member of the first team, especially after adding 16 goals to his name under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Owen managed 18 top-flight efforts in 1997-98, but Neville believes Greenwood is capable of matching the ex-Liverpool frontman and other precocious talents such as Robbie Fowler and Wayne Rooney.
“You look at his impact as a young player and you think about some great careers – Michael Owen was a Ballon d’Or winner,” former United defender Neville told Premier League Productions.
“You’ve got to keep your feet on the ground and you’ve got to protect the lad and there is a long way to go, but ultimately the quality of his development and the rate of his development is up there with some of the great young players that we’ve seen.
“You think about the front three for United, [Bruno] Fernandes, [Paul] Pogba – that lad can be absolutely anything he wants to be.”
Greenwood is a very exciting talent that has all the ability to go on and become a big star for United, so if he is able to keep his head down, work hard and stay focused, he could become one of the best wingers in the game.
There has been alot of talk about the young man over the past few months, but people need to realise, that he is a very young player that needs the right people around him, or he could head in the wrong direction.
