Incredible Video Proves That Mason Greenwood Has Always Been A Generational Talent

An incredible video of Mason Greenwood's time in the Manchester United academy proves he has always been destined for the top.

The 18-year-old has made a huge impression at Old Trafford this season, with 16 goals in 42 appearances during a sublime breakout campaign.

Football fans across the world have begun to appreciate his prowess in front of goal, but what about the rest of his game?

Well, @MxZvGx_'s compilation from the youngster's academy days proves Greenwood is the full package and United have a very special player on their hands.

In the video, Greenwood can be seen leaving numerous defenders in the dust as he skips past them with incredible ease.

A wide array of neat passes are also on show, something he offered first-team fans a glimpse of when assisting Bruno Fernandes against Brighton and Hove Albion last week.

While being blessed with technical ability, one key element of Greenwood's post-lockdown form could be his improved physique.

He added 3kg of muscle to the triceps, biceps and quadriceps area during lockdown in a bid to improve his overall physical stature.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke glowingly of Greenwood's determination to return a stronger player.

"Mason is a young boy. He's still 18 and this lockdown period has done him all the good in the world because, at his age, they do develop and fill out" he told the Manchester Evening News.

"Mason's looking more and more like a man, so definitely it will help him.

"Sometimes early on you could see he was a kid. Now in training he can use his strength better and he has done really well over the three or four weeks we have been training now.

"And his quality in front of goal has always been there and now he has muscle to push defenders away.

"I am not sure it was deliberate but the fitness coaches have worked really well with him. He has got the rest and recovery period after for him what must have been an intense first full season with the first team. He is looking good."

Greenwood is already being earmarked for an England call-up in the near future and could be an important player for club and country in the coming years.
