​Man Utd hero Blackmore: Greenwood can be special

Manchester United talent Mason Greenwood will miss the UEFA European U17 Championships with school duties, but the 16-year-old has left such a mark in England's qualifiers, that he is still a most talked about star.

Clayton Blackmore, a former Academy coach at United and club legend, is not surprised and says it's only a question of what heights Greenwood's career will reach.

"We don't know how good he is going to get. He's still growing," he told MEN Sport.

"He's great on the ball and very good with both feet. He's the first person I've seen that takes penalties and free-kicks with his wrong foot. I've never come across anyone like that!

"He's got a great chance."
