Mason Greenwood joined Manchester United when he was a child and, while still only a teenager, already has over 20 goals for the first team.
On Tuesday, his contract extension until at least 2025 was announced by the club, to mark what has been a good few weeks for the youngster.
Last month, Greenwood scored one and assisted another as we knocked rivals Liverpool out of the FA Cup. While his overall goal tally is lower this season, his involvement is on the rise.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Greenwood has spoken about what it means to him to play for United.
When you join the club at seven years old, you just dream of playing for the first-team one day. I’ve worked so hard to reach this level and the last two years have been amazing. There is so much that I want to achieve in the game and I know that this is the perfect environment to play my football.
With the support from the manager, his coaching staff and so many great players to learn from; I know that I am developing every single day. There is a lot more to come from myself and this team and I am so committed to working hard week in, week out to help the group achieve success.
I want to repay the club for the support that everyone has given me over the years and show everyone just what I am capable of.
