Man Utd 'concerned about potentially stifling' Mason Greenwood as they set him on special shooting training programme

MANCHESTER UNITED are concerned about 'stifling' Mason Greenwood in training, according to reports.

The Red Devils teenager wowed fans last season, as he managed 17 goals in his debut campaign.

But things have been tougher this time out, with the 19-year-old managing only one goal in 17 Premier League outings.

Despite this, however, United are 'delighted' with his contribution.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his potential is enormous.

And Red Devils coaches are working on improving his skills on the training field.

According to The Athletic, Greenwood is being encouraged to score more goals at the near post.

Despite his lack of goals, Solskjaer recent gushed about the young winger's overall performances, following the 3-3 draw with Everton.

He said: "Mason was different class, the standout performer on the pitch.

"He’s improved and matured immensely.


"He’s working with some of the top forwards in the country.

"It’s exciting to see he’s come over his blip and is playing really well.”

Following his England debut in September, Greenwood failed to score in his first six Premier League appearances of the season.

A goal against West Ham followed in early December.

But he has failed to score in the 10 league games since.

He did manage a crucial FA Cup goal against Liverpool, however, and has laid on five assists in all competitions.
