'Unbelievable Greenwood is the best I've seen' - Foden in awe of Man Utd attacker's finishing ability

Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden says Manchester United teenager Mason Greenwood is the best finisher he has ever seen.

The 18-year-old has played a vital role in the Red Devils' latest victories against Brighton and Bournemouth, scoring three goals and registering an assist over the two matches.

The attacker has netted 15 times in 41 appearances in all competitions this term, leading to him being tipped to become a club legend by team-mate Luke Shaw, while former United striker Andy Cole praised his "freakish" ability to find the net.

Even his side's city rivals are in awe of the England Under-21 international, as Foden has been thoroughly impressed by his prowess in the box.

"Mason Greenwood, the best I've seen finishing wise. He's both footed. In and around the box, he's always going to score," he told Premier League Uncut.

"High up finishing wise compared to Sergio Aguero. For his age, he's unbelievable. I don't know how he does it, to be honest.

"Just the right type of shot, you know what I mean. He knows when to finesse or lace it and he shoots quick, the keeper is never stable or set."

Greenwood is not the only player to earn Foden's praises, as he singled out Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi for his dribbling skills and his Blues team-mate Reece James.

"He's rapid. I've played with him before. He's a talented player and he's quick off the mark. He uses it well," he added.

"Callum is very good at dribbling, to be honest. One vs ones, out wide in those areas, he's unbelievable.

"I like Reece James for physical. I think he's powerful. When I've seen him play he's done really well. He can defend and go forward, which I like to see. He's so strong."

The 20-year-old also praised Leicester midfielder James Maddison for his passing ability, saying:"Even the little passes in between the gaps, it's always with the right weight. He just kills the defence and breaks the lines, it just makes it easier for the people up front, they know they're going to be found.
