Manchester United star Mason Greenwood was spotted looking through a booklet of tactics.
Manchester United’s tactics have been exposed by Sky Sports after Mason Greenwood was filmed reading through a booklet of tactics. The youngster was being brought on by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and spotted looking through some United tactics.
Greenwood was being primed to replace Jesse Lingard with the youngster scoring after coming on.
He may have been helped by his last minute glances at the tactics sheet on the sideline.
But United fans were fuming at Sky Sports for the way they filmed the moment from above.
One wrote on social media: “Disgusting that though from sky”
Another added: “Wouldn’t do that to anyone else”
And a third wrote: “Can’t we sue them for this”
A fellow United supporter put: “It’s annoying they were showing it”
With one more writing: “MASON GREENWOOD JUST READING TACTICS BOOK, SKY SPORTS REVEAL OUR TACTICS”
Solskjaer has previously praised the finishing of Greenwood, who he has used in parts this season.
“It’s a process at this club: some of the younger players need to grow and take their first steps,” Solskjaer said.
“If you don’t throw them in at some point you don’t know what you’ve got.
“I’ve always done this wherever I’ve been, and if you have good young forward players they will win you games.
“He’s [Greenwood] still very young but he’s been maturing in the last six months.
“When I first came here I found a kid who just wanted to play with his mates in the under-18s, but now he’s knocking on the first-team door and his appetite is growing.
“I don’t want to put too much pressure on him at this stage, I just want him to go out there and enjoy himself.
“He’ll be all right when the ball lands at his feet because he’s one of the best finishers I’ve seen, but the game is all about working hard and closing down when you don’t have the ball.
“Finishing might look as if it comes naturally to Mason, but I don’t actually believe you get gifts like that from birth and I’ve seen how hard he works in training.
“His technique is brilliant, and that is a result of constant practice and repetition.”
