Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has compared Mason Greenwood’s ability to score with both feet to that of former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 18-year-old has scored eight goals in nine starts in all competitions this season, including one in United’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle United on Boxing Day.

And Man Utd boss Solskjaer has likened Greenwood‘s ability with both feet to that of Juventus’ Ronaldo.

Solskjaer said: “There is not too many I can remember like him who has every single technique.

“He’s not just 50-50 with both feet but probably 60-60! Cristiano can score just as many with his left and they are proper strikes.

“But Mason can curl the ball with both feet, he is an exceptional finisher. He has got the lot.

“He’s young and has got a lot to learn, he knows that. He needs to head the ball like Marcus Rashford can.

“I don’t think we are going to see the best of Mason for a couple of years.

“But I can remember when I was 18 but I was nowhere near the level playing at he was.”
