The18-year-old Greenwood took the Premier League by storm this season, scoring 10 goals and netting a further seven in other competitions.

And Van Persie was not ashamed to say Greenwood is even better than he was as a teenager as he lauded the England U21 striker.

Solskjaer’s role changes that are bringing the best out of Anthony Martial
“When I watch him play, it just brings a big smile to my face,”

“He’s deadly with his finishing. The way he finishes is very unique. He’s 18 years old! As a young kid, I didn’t score many goals when I was 18 so Mason Greenwood is definitely doing better at 18 than me.”

Greenwood has enjoyed a remarkable breakout season, Van Persie also highlighted the role of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in getting the best out of Greenwood and assessed his former side’s chances in the Europa League

The Dutchman added: “ Solskjaer makes Greenwood one of the main guys and that is what you want. You want that coming from the coach

“And Solskjaer gives that to Bruno Fernandes, to Paul Pogba, to Mason Greenwood, to Marcus Rashford, to Anthony Martial and you can see these guys blossom with that, they love it.

“They have more control, they’re more bossing games and everyone knows that you have to be consistent if you want to be competing for trophies.

“They are more consistent now and if they keep doing that they are definitely contenders.”

United face Sevilla in the Europa League semi-finals after Fernandes’ penalty saw the Red Devils overcome Copenhagen in the last eight.
