 After a fantastic display against Newcastle United on boxing day, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has compared Mason Greenwood to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Greenwood smashed home his eighth goal of the season in the 36th minute of the game against Newcastle United.

The high flying teenager has really been impressive since Ole Gunnar Soskjaer brought him into Manchester United first-team squad and has always been repaying the manager's faith in him.

After the game against Newcastle, Solskjaer was impressed with the young lad and praised him for his performance.

Speaking with the Sun he said: 'There is not too many I can remember like him who has every single technique. He's not just 50-50 with both feet but probably 60-60.'

'Cristiano can score as many with his left and they are proper strikes. But Mason can curl the ball with both feet, he is an exceptional finisher.'

'He has got the lot. He's young and has got to learn, he knows that. He needs to head the ball as Marcus Rashford can.'

'I don't think we are going to see the best of Mason for a couple of years. But I can remember when I was 18 but I was nowhere near the level playing at he was.

Soskjaer also addresses the situation when Greenwood tries to score from outside after latching onto Fabian Schar loose pass.

'He is confident and knows he can score from outside and I'm not going to tell him it was the wrong decision,' He added

'If you take that away from Mason you take the loads away. He is a great striker and he's got a knack for hitting the target.'
