Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood is humbled to be likened to the club’s exceptional former striker Robin van Persie.
Chatting to Man United’s media in the popular Q&A feature where fans send questions from all over the world, Greenwood was asked to share his thoughts on reminding Red Devils fans about van Persie.
“It’s nice if people think I play like him and shoot like him a little bit. For an all-time great like him, it’s nice to have that little thing that people say,” the 19-year-old said.
“I used to watch him at United and obviously at Arsenal as well. He’s a good quality striker. I’ve watched a lot of football games and a lot of Premier League strikers and obviously pick up a few things and watch a few clips. It’s a nice little comparison,” Greenwood finished.
In the meantime, Greenwood and his teammates are preparing for the club’s third preseason friendly against Brentford on Wednesday.
