Solskjaer pleased with 'natural finisher' Greenwood after Man Utd win

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with victory over Inter Milan.

Mason Greenwood stepped off the bench to score the winning goal, as United made it three wins from three on Tour 2019 with a confident 1-0 victory over Inter Milan in Singapore.

The 17-year-old Academy youngster scored his first goal in senior football against Leeds United in midweek and followed it up with another strike, which displayed his devastating finishing ability.

Afterwards, Solskjaer said of Greenwood: "He's a natural finisher. He's practicing of course but he just knows where the goal is. Sometimes you get players like this and he's a natural scorer."

On the conditions of Victor Lindelof and Tahith Chong after they were forced off with injury, Solskjaer was upbeat.

“We don't know yet... I think they should be OK. We'll have to assess it (Lindelof) tomorrow. I don't blame the defenders for trying to stop him (Chong)."
