Solskjaer claims Man Utd whizkid Mason Greenwood is ready for England call-up at just 18


OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER says hotshot Mason Greenwood is ready for England NOW.

The Manchester United ace, 18, has had an unforgettable week, scoring three goals in the wins over Brighton and Bournemouth.

Greenwood could be part of Gareth Southgate’s squad for the rearranged Euros next year.

Solskjaer would have no worries about the teen taking his form to the international stage.

He said: “If you can handle playing for United, then you can handle playing for any team and Mason’s got the qualities that not many others have.

“So he could play for England’s full team or Under-21s, I don’t really mind. I know he’s doing well for us and it’s great to have him.”

Greenwood, 19 in October, only made his debut for the Three Lions Under-21s in September but has one goal in four games.

The United boss wants him to bulk up so he  becomes even more difficult for defenders.

Ole said: “Mason’s a naturally good finisher, so he’ll always score goals.

“He’s a humble boy, he wants to learn, he listens, he’s worked hard, you can see his fitness is getting better and better.

“He’s exciting to work with and we’ll keep building him up in the gym.”
