Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has labeled Mason Greenwood the best finisher he has ever played with. The Frenchman has played with a number of top strikers for club and country over the years, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku, Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappé.
Mason Greenwood got off to a sparkling start to the 2021-2022 season and has found the back of the net in all three of Manchester United’s games in the Premier League this season.
The 19-year-old enjoyed a breakout campaign during the 2019-20 season when he scored 10 goals in 31 league appearances for the Red Devils. He managed to score just seven times in the Premier League last season, but showed glimpses of his return to his best form towards the end of the season.
Mason Greenwood’s Manchester United team-mate Paul Pogba praised the attacker for his finishing ability. Pogba believes Greenwood is the deadliest finisher he’s ever played with.
“Mason, I think he’s more left footed, he dribbles more with his left, but to shoot he can shoot with both, his finish is unreal. I think he’s the best finisher I’ve seen, trained with so far. He’s incredible, I wish he could score more goals and improve us and help us win titles,” Pogba told Stadium Astro.
Manchester United’s incredible summer transfer window could lead to Paul Pogba signing a new deal this season
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has had an impressive start to the 2021-2022 season. The 28-year-old has so far provided five assists in just three Premier League games.
However, Pogba has yet to commit his future to Manchester United and has less than a year left on his current contract with the club.
Manchester United have so far managed to sign Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo. The Red Devils have made a statement of intent and are currently one of the favorites to win the Premier League title this season. This could entice Paul Pogba to sign a contract extension with the club over the course of the season.
