Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clears the air about Manchester United youngster as the Norwegian believes that the forward will make a comeback soon
Manchester United haven’t had a good start to their League campaign as the Red Devils were beaten twice in their first five games this season. Apart from their mediocre outings in the Premier League, a couple of squad members have been criticized for their misconduct in the past few weeks.
In August, Harry Maguire was arrested on charges of physical assault during his vacation in Mykonos Islands, Greece. The former Leicester defender was however released on bail and had his prison sentence suspended as it was his first offense and the charges were classed as misdemeanors.
The Red Devils, however, faced more criticism as one of their young forwards breached Covid protocols during international duty with England. Mason Greenwood found himself in troubled waters after he and his teammate Phil Foden invited Iceland girls to their hotel rooms. The English international also delved into more controversy as he was filmed inhaling laughing gas at a party.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has not commented on the controversies but has instead indicated that the forward is in line to make his return against Chelsea this weekend. The 19-year-old made his last appearance in a humiliating defeat against Tottenham just before the international break.
The Norwegian boss defended the youngster as he said,” You do [make a target for yourself] when you play well and I’m not concerned at all with Mason making a target for himself. He came in, played fantastically, he made his first start against Tottenham last season, was brilliant, kicked on. He made a mistake for England and suddenly the English press goes after him.”- Express
Last season, Greenwood’s contribution in the final third proved to be vital as last season as the 19-year-old chipped in with 10 goals in his 31 appearances in the Premier League. With Ole’s backing, the youngster is now expected to return to his best form and help the Red Devils to at least clinch a spot in the top four in the ongoing league campaign.
