MASON GREENWOOD’S second goal against Bournemouth had goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale desperately screaming at his defenders before he launched a furious X-rated outburst at them.
The Manchester United forward, 18, fired an emphatic right-footed strike past the Cherries stopper to make it 4-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
“Don’t let him turn! Don’t let him turn!”

But despite a second excellent finish from the teenager, Ramsdale went from desperation to pure rage.
With the game played behind closed doors, the England Under-21 keeper could be heard shouting at his defenders as United played the ball around the edge of the box.
Ramsdale repeatedly bellowed: “Don’t foul!”
But as Bournemouth struggled to get the ball away, Nemanja Matic poked it across for Greenwood.
Ramsdale implored Diego Rico: “Don’t let him turn,” but the Spaniard could do nothing as the teenager worked the space.
And Greenwood, who had earlier beaten the goalkeeper for pace as he equalised following Junior Stanislas’ shock opener, unleashed a venomous strike.
Ramsdale again got a hand to the ball but could not do enough to keep it out.
And he exploded with an almighty “f***!” before turning to his defenders, angrily demanding: “Who you f***ing talking to?” as Greenwood ran off to celebrate.
The goal was Greenwood’s eighth in the Premier League and 15th overall this term in what has been an impressive breakthrough season.
Bruno Fernandes whipped in a free-kick to round off the scoring in the 5-2 win which helped United keep the pressure on the top four.
Greenwood has already surpassed Wayne Rooney’s record at Everton in 2002/03 and boasts a minutes-per-goal record of 115.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for the academy graduate, admitting has never seen a teenager with such emphatic striking in front of goal.
Solskjaer – who tipped the youngster to surpass his own Red Devils total – said: “No, I don’t think I have.
“I have seen Wayne Rooney at the same age and Mason is a specialist finisher and specialist goalscorer he knows exactly what to do with the ball when he’s on the pitch.
“If he shoots he will score, he is going to get better and his general play has improved.
“I don’t want to compare him to Rooney or Ronaldo as that’s not fair and he’ll create his own career.
“He’s doing it his own way. Both of those have had fantastic careers and I’m sure if Mason keeps on doing the right things and making good decisions he’ll have a fantastic career too.
“It’s Mason’s first season but we’ve always known there’s a special kid there.”
