Man Utd attacker Rashford in awe of 'frightening' Greenwood

Marcus Rashford was in awe of teammate Mason Greenwood after Wednesday's 4-0 win over Leeds United in Perth.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Greenwood would be in contention for starting spot in the Premier League opener against Chelsea, after then 17-year-old scored the opening goal within seven minutes against Leeds.

Speaking about Greenwood, Rashford said: "You have to understand people's characteristics. He's quite a laid-back person, so I don't think it does him any good to put things in his head constantly.

"But his natural abilities are frightening and the manager is doing a good job guiding him in the right direction. The more he does that the more his talent will come through."
