Manchester United star Paul Pogba says he will keep ‘pushing’ Mason Greenwood to reach the top after insisting there’s ‘more’ to come from the teenager.
The striker hit his 16th goal of the season in United’s 3-0 win against Aston Villa and Greenwood was United’s standout performer at Villa Park.
The 18-year-old has scored four goals since the Premier League resumed and he looks more equipped to deal with the physicality of defenders, with reports claiming he put on 3kg of muscle during the three-month break.
Pogba grabbed his first goal in nearly a year-and-a-half and the Frenchman looks considerably happier at Old Trafford given the improvements around him.
That’s reflected in the mentor role he’s been playing for Greenwood and Pogba says the teenager must not rest on his laurels after his recent fine form.
‘I enjoy this kid [Greenwood] in training and in the games,’ Pogba admitted to Sky Sports.
‘I will keep pushing him to be at the top. He has so much to do again. He can do even more.
‘What he’s doing right now is just his talent. He shows he can play in this team.’
United’s win means the Red Devils are unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions and they will gain a place in the Champions League if they win their remaining four Premier League matches.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted on Wednesday that he wants Pogba to sign a new deal at the club, with the midfielder’s current deal set to expire in 2022.
However, the Frenchman was coy about the prospect of staying at the club when he was asked about his future afterwards.
‘Right now i have been injured for a very long time, I have focused on myself to get back and help the team as much as I can,’ said Pogba.
‘This year we have two goals to go for the Europa League and the FA Cup so we focus on that’.
