Paul Scholes believes Mason Greenwood will become a better goalscorer than Marcus Rashford for Manchester United.

Greenwood scored his third goal of the season on Thursday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side sealed a 3-0 victory over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.

The 18-year-old played on the right flank in his latest appearance for United, but Scholes predicts that the forward will thrive in a more central role as he develops.

‘Everything seems so smooth,’ Scholes told BT Sport.

‘We talk about United not having a No.9 but he [Greenwood] could be a No.9 because of that sheer composure he has in front of goal.

‘He calms himself down, he takes a touch.

‘Marcus is capable of brilliant things and probably a scorer of great goals rather than a great goalscorer.

‘I think he lacks that little bit of composure.

‘I think Mason will eventually be a better goalscorer than Marcus.

‘But they both bring real quality to the team in forward areas which we’ve been lacking.’
