‘You can tell his finishing is unbelievable’: Shaw explains how Greenwood reminds him of Van Persie

The left-back reckons Greenwood, Rashford and Martial are the best finishers at United.

Shaw raves about how beautifully Mason finishes his chances and perfectly slots his shots in the right corners of the goal.

When asked about who according to him are the best finishers at Man United, Luke Shaw told Sky Sports: “here are many good finishers in our team. I would say Rashy, Anthon. Mason has got beautiful finishing – he reminds me of when I was here with Van Persie.

“His finishing – he was so deadly in front of goal. Nearly every opportunity Van Persie had, he’d score and of course Mason is still very young but you can tell his finishing is unbelievable – both feet, left, right – beautiful technique and he normally slots it in the right corners.

“I think everybody knows. Of course he’s still very young and can improve and learn more but I think Mason’s finishing is really good.”

Mason Greenwood has attracted a lot of comparisons with Robin van Persie because of their similar technique and playing style.

The youngster himself is looking to improve as a centre-forward going forward and now that he’s signed a new long-term deal with United, Greenwood has plenty of time to unlock his ultimate potential in the years to come.
