Andy Cole makes a surprise statement about Mason Greenwood

Andy Cole believes Mason Greenwood is not a perfect number 9

In MU’s 5-1 victory over Leeds in the first round of the English Premier League 2021/22, the player born in 2001 played in the center position and got a goal. When Edinson Cavani is older and Anthony Martial is unstable, the possibility of Mason Greenwood being used regularly in the central position is entirely possible.

However, MU legend – Andy Cole does not think Mason Greenwood will become the perfect number 9 of the Old Trafford team. He told Premier League Productions: “I don’t really think Greenwood wants to play as a centre-forward.”


“Playing in the front position is always under a lot of pressure. I also think that he is more suitable for a left or right role than playing at the top of the line. Greenwood has good pace and individual technique, but he’s not in the best shape. I also don’t see in him the skills of a top striker.”


“Erling Haaland and Harry Kane are typical number 9s at the moment, they have the ability to seize opportunities extremely well. These 2 players can also create chances and score goals themselves. I spoke to Manchester United’s technical director, Darren Fletcher, and he said that Greenwood doesn’t want to play at the front, I think that’s the right choice for him.”
