Manchester United legend Gary Neville has revealed his favourite player at the club amongst the current set. He revealed the identity of his favourite Manchester United player while he was fielding questions on Twitter. According to Gary Neville, England international Mason Greenwood is his favourite current United player before adding that no one comes close to Greenwood for him including Cristiano Ronaldo. Gary Neville and Cristiano Ronaldo were teammates atOld Trafford before the latter moved from Manchester United to Spanish team Real Madrid in 2009.
Neville has been impressed with Greenwood who burst onto the scene two seasons ago having come through the club’s academy. He scored in each of the three Premier League games this season but has failed to find the back of the net in the last three games in the same competition.
Manchester United had a dream start in the Premier League this season with England striker Greenwood getting one of the goals as the Red Devils secured a thumping 5-1 win over Leeds United. Bruno Fernandes is the playmaker at Manchester United and he scored three goals during the game to take the match ball home.
Greenwood then scored the only goal of the game for Manchester United who were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton to make it two goals in two league encounters. The young Englishman made it three goals in three games with the lone goal as Manchester United picked up their first win away from home in the new Premier League campaign via a 1-0 victory over hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers. His late goal gave Manchester United the three points on offer ahead of Wolves.
Manchester United picked up six points from theirnext three league games to add to the seven points from the first three games and Greenwood was not amongst the goals in those three league games against Newcastle United (home), West Ham United (away) and Aston Villa (home).
