EPL: Teddy Sheringham names Greenwood’s best position at Manchester Utd

Former Manchester United striker, Teddy Sheringham, has named Mason Greenwood’s best position at the club following the arrival of interim manager, Ralf Rangnick.

Greenwood, who has been used as a right-winger in the past, has enjoyed an astonishing rise from Man United’s academy to the Red Devils’ first team in recent years.

The 20-year-old made his debut under former Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in March 2019.

The England international has now established himself as a senior player at Man United.

But Sheringham believes Greenwood knows how to score goals and should play a centre-forward role for Rangnick’s side.

“I saw Denis Irwin in Dubai and I spoke to him about Greenwood,” Sheringham told the Manchester Evening News.

“I said I thought that’s where Greenwood was going to be heading [playing at centre-forward]. He said to me, ‘no, he’s more of a number 10’. Again, he’s scored his goals throughout his United career, youth career, but Denis thinks he’s more of a number 10.

“I thought he was developing as a number nine and you know, United were planning on keeping him there for the long run, learning off Cavani. Denis sees it a little bit differently and he sees Greenwood more often than I do.

“He [Greenwood] definitely knows where the goal is. I love the way he finishes, very, very clever. Whether he gets in the six-yard box enough for a centre-forward, I don’t know. He scores good goals rather than a lot of goals more often than not, I think.

“If he’s going to learn, if he’s going to be a number nine, then he needs to get in the six-yard box a little bit more often.”
