Two Qualities Mason Greenwood Has That Makes Him A Very Valuable Player

Born on October 1st 2001, Mason Greenwood is unarguably the hottest youngster at Manchester United right now. The 19 year old who came through the youth system made his first start for the Red Devils two years ago in a Europa league match against Astana which he scored the only goal of the game. Since then, he has enjoyed a consistent number of appearances in the first team.

Greenwood is a talented youngster and of all the qualities he possess, the following qualities stands out and it's making him a very valuable player.

1- Versatility

Mason began his career as a midfielder, but gradually evolved into a centre forward. He can play on the right flank, left flank or sometimes as a second striker, he is simply ubiquitous up front and that makes his versatility second to none.

2- Two-footed Finisher

Not only is the 19 year old clinical with his finishing, he does it with both feet. Naturally, he is left footed, but when you watch him play, the shot power and accuracy that he produces with his right foot is tantamount to what he does with his left. At one time he was seen scoring a penalty with his right foot and then taking a free-kick with his left, he is simply stunning and that's why he can play anywhere up front.

If Manchester United were to cash in on Mason Greenwood, they will certainly cash in big, the boy is talented and he proves it everyday. He recently won the player of the month award for the Red Devils after becoming the second teenager to score in three consecutive opening Premier league games. He could yet scoop the Premier league player of the month award, the first since he became a senior player, his aforementioned qualities makes him a valuable asset and Manchester United will be hoping he keeps it up.
