Interim Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick was delighted by the display of “massive talent” Mason Greenwood and now wants to help him develop physically and mentally.

Wednesday’s Champions League encounter against Young Boys was a dead rubber as United were already assured of their place in the last-16 draw as Group F winners.

It gave Rangnick the opportunity to make 11 changes for his second match as interim boss, with United’s homegrown forward shining brightest and scoring an outstanding acrobatic volleyed opener in a forgettable 1-1 draw.

“He’s a massive talent – left foot, right foot, good on the ball. Also the way that he set up the goal for Fred on Sunday, so it’s about continuity.

“He has to develop physically but technically for his age he is a great player. My job is to develop him, to make an athlete out of him and if he manages to do that, he can become a regular player for this club.”

Reacting to Greenwood’s fantastic performance against Young boys, former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand likened Greenwood’s playing style to that of Robin Van Persie.

“Mason Greenwood’s movement for the goal is deft and the finish – bang. His style is much like Robin van Persie. He’s elusive, doesn’t get pinned by a defender. He knows how to find space.”
