'Greenwood is better than Rashford' - Man Utd starlet is 'a defender's nightmare' and a 'fantastic talent', says Yorke
Mason Greenwood is better than Marcus Rashford, according to Dwight Yorke, who has described the Manchester United starlet as a "defender's nightmare" and a "fantastic talent".
Solskjaer has been rewarded for placing his trust in a talented young forwardwith little previous senior experience, as he has hit 18goals in 47 appearances across all competitions.
Most of those outings have come from the bench, but he has enjoyed a prominent role in Solskjaer's starting XI since last month's top-flight restart.
The England international recently earned a place in the Old Trafford record books for scoring in three consecutive matches, becoming only the second teenager to achieve the feat alongsideclub legend Wayne Rooney.
Rashford is also enjoying a fine individual campaign, having hit a career-high total of 22 goals, with his potential now starting to be fulfilled after three years of development as a promising academy graduate.
Yorke thinks Greenwood is progressing at an even faster rate than his team-mate, and expects him to continuehis current trajectory with Solskjaer on hand to "guide him".
The former United striker told Apollo Tyres: "He is getting all the praise right now because he is certainly hot at the moment with what he is doing. The trend at United is that the young players have always been getting chances.
"Under LVG Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, they have not got their chances. Ole has come in and recognized that part of Man Utd. Mason, under Jose, probably would not have got a game.
"Mason is a defender's nightmare. If you look at us in the last 2-3 years, we have been passing sideways, now these guys are driving teams back into their own area. He is a fantastic talent.
