Solskjaer delighted with 2-goal Man Utd whiz Greenwood: But don't forget Martial

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with two goal Mason Greenwood after their 5-2 thumping of Bournemouth.

Solskjaer, however, was keen to ease the hype around the teen.

He said, "Yeah, he's a fantastic goalscorer and the moments he chose the goals for us today were very important moments, especially the second one.

"You know he has a left foot to come inside but I think defenders will have to think about the outside because he can score with his right foot too. He's a very talented boy and we'll just nurture him as well as we can, and give him more and more minutes."

Solskjaer also hailed the wonder strike from Anthony Martial.

"What a goal and Bruno's free-kick of course! Anto has done that before, but today was a sweet strike and he's just got to 20. Marcus got to 20, so the two of them can settle down a little bit with that and don't have to chase that next goal, because that is a milestone for everyone."
