Ole Gunnar Solskjaer uses experience to highlight value of Man Utd role to Mason Greenwood

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to hammer home the importance of substitutes to Mason Greenwood following the teenager’s cameo role at the weekend.

The Manchester United star came off the bench and provided an assist and a goal as the Red Devils came from behind to beat Tottenham 3-1.

Greenwood has found himself on the bench numerous times this term as he struggles to hit the heights of last season.

Despite that Solskjaer has regularly backed the forward and has used his own experience to underline the influence of those coming off the bench.

Greenwood told the club’s website : “Ole has told the story many times [about being a substitute] and I’ve watched it [the 1999 Champions League final] so I can never, ever forget that! He [Ole] was always ready, he always told me.

“We got told about it in the youth team, and I’m sure they still talk about it to this day.”

Greenwood was certainly primed at the weekend as he enjoyed a hugely productive 20 minutes.

His cross allowed Edinson Cavani to head home before his powerful finish sealed the game in stoppage time.

“I was very happy [after the game],” he added.

“Obviously you’ve got to be ready when you’re on the bench. You never know when you can come on and that’s what I was waiting for.

“I got told to come on and just wanted to go out there and do the best I could and, obviously, I provided two goals with an assist and a goal, and I was very proud of that.”
