Greenwood on van Persie: It’s nice if people think I play and shoot like him

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.
