Man Utd legend, Scholes names best finisher in the club

Paul Scholes, Manchester United legend, has identified Mason Greenwood as the club’s best finisher ahead of Marcus Rashford.

In fact, Greenwood has endured a difficult time in front of a goal so far this season, scoring just four goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for Man United after primarily operating from the right-wing.

The young lad started as central forward on Thursday night as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side thrashed Real Sociedad 4-0 in the Europa League round of 32 first-leg tie at the Juventus Stadium, thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes (2), Rashford and Daniel James.

 The19-year-old, who admitted that he wants to play as a striker after Man United defeated Real Sociedad, has seen the central forward role mainly occupied by Edinson Cavani this season.

“It’s between Rashford and Greenwood who plays in that centre forward role,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“I think the club and everybody thinks Greenwood is the best finisher at the club so, therefore, he would be better as the No9.

“The only problem is when Rashford’s played on the right, he hasn’t really found his best form, so they could switch around quite a bit.

“Give Greenwood chances he will score. He is destined to be a superstar. He’s got to keep his feet on the ground, keep working hard, and there’s nothing to stop him.”

While speaking after Man United defeated Real Sociedad in Italy, Greenwood said: “I’m happy to play on the right, I’m happy to play upfront, I’m not really sure.

“But I always wanted to be a striker when I was younger.”
