Man United's Rashford on Ronaldo comparison: It's a compliment

Mason Greenwood Manchester United 2019-20

Manchester United legend Lou Macari believes Mason Greenwood is ready to make an impact for the Red Devils now with his goals.

He said: "I told them to be more us [at half-time], be more Man Utd, I know it's hard for players when you change but in the second-half we just found a rhythm, made more passes forward, more runs forward, were pressing and got our goals".

There have been rumours Pogba's injury is just an excuse for him not to feature as he is said to be refusing not to play in order to force through a move this winter.

The Red Devils needed a win to cement the top spot in their Europa League group but they were unimpressive in the opening half where AZ had a couple of genuine chances to find the breakthrough.

The 18-year-old won the penalty converted by Juan Mata, before wrapping up a comprehensive 4-0 win with another stunning strike, becoming the youngest player to score a brace for United in major European competition.

'The first time I saw him he stood out and I took a picture with him.


Rashford was being saved for United's Premier League game against Everton on Sunday.

'I do remember the kid because I remember talking to Noah about that.

"Don't let them play so much because they're good on the ball, and it worked out well", the 23-year-old said when asked about the team's second-half performance after the match as reported by Manchester Evening News. 'It's something we're proud of, it's in our DNA.

He is in the best goal-scoring form of his career after netting 13 goals in his last 14 games but the England man insists it will mean very little unless United can turn this season into a success.

"Obviously there's a lot of young players in the squad and in the starting XI so we're sort of learning as we go along", Rashford said.
