Manchester United star Mason Greenwood has reflected on his season’s performance and compared it to that of the former campaign.

Manchester United wonderkid Mason Greenwood says he has enjoyed a better season this year than the last campaign.

The youngster burst into United’s first-team in spectacular fashion in 2019 and has netted 12 goals across all competitions this time around, with seven of them coming in the Premier League.

And, despite scoring less and enduring a significant barren spell, Greenwood is adamant that his overall performances have been at a higher level than ever before.

“I think I’ve done better than last season,” Greenwood said as per ESPN. ‘The performances when I wasn’t scoring, I still think I was playing well. I don’t think I was playing poorly.

“The final end product might not have been there and obviously towards the end of the season it’s kicked in, but I still feel like I’ve done a lot better than I had last year.”

“My goals and assists might not seem like it but in my opinion, and maybe the players around me, I feel like I’m more of a player for the team now as well.”

Greenwood added: ‘You’ve still got to defend. You can’t always just score, you’ve still got to do the other sides of the game.

“It’s good to be back on the scoresheet and doing well, but I’d choose the team first and I’d rather have a good performance than just to score one goal and to not play well.”

“I’d rather do it for the team because, at the end of the day, it is a team sport and that’s what I’m here to do.”

“To be a part of the team and hopefully goals and stuff can help the team as well.”
