Messi or Ronaldo? Greenwood makes his pick
Manchester United wonder-Kid Mason Greenwood made his choice between Messi & Ronaldo.
The current Red Devils forward is a big fan of both superstar performers.
during a Q&A session on United’s official website to make his selection, Greenwood said;
“For me, it’s always got to be Messi. He’s just on another planet.
“Ronaldo is obviously amazing, a physical, great athletic footballer, but to do what Messi does at his size
what he’s done for Barcelona and winning that trophy [Copa America] for Argentina, he is just on another level.”
Overlooking one Ronaldo, given his strong ties to United, may come as something as a surprise
but Greenwood admits to taking inspiration from another.
He added on his favourite skill, which was once favoured by the iconic Brazil international striker:
“My favourite skill move was the stepover and I still use it to this day.
“It’s my favourite skill move. I used to watch the Brazilian Ronaldo
as he would always pull one out on the goalkeepers and defenders.
“I used to practice at the parks and stuff and used to do it in training sessions, then that would lead on to games.
Now, it’s just stuck with me, it’s a little skill move that I practice.”
Greenwood is, at just 19, in the process of carving out his own career at the highest level.
He has plenty of sporting heroes to look to for guidance
with one of those being a big United supporter who boasts eight Olympic gold medals.
Pressed on who he would most like to meet, Greenwood said: “Any celebrity in the world? For me, it’s got to be Usain Bolt.
I used to love my athletics when I was younger.
I used to love watching it with my parents and two sisters.
He is a good inspiration, a world leader in what he used to do. It’s probably him.”
