MASON GREENWOOD has been staying behind after Manchester United training to improve his finishing technique.
The 17-year-old striker has made a stunning start to senior life at Old Trafford, scoring twice in as many matches.
He bagged United's goal last night in their drab 1-1 draw with lowly Rochdale, who they went on to beat on penalties, with the youngster scoring from the spot.
Greenwood has been a shining light for the Red Devils and is seen as a first-team star of the future.
The youngster has been impressing boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his backroom staff with his incredible attitude.
The English forward has been spending 20 minutes extra working on his finishing inside the penalty box.
It is understood he is often one of the first to arrive at their Carrington training complex every morning.
And he is then the last to leave, as he works hard in extra sessions of movement and technique.
Greenwood has also been working on penalties, with United already missing twice from the spot this season.
An Old Trafford source said: “Ole loves the example Mason sets for someone so young and inexperienced.
“The coaches highlight Marcus Rashford's efforts and discipline to the younger ranks as the example pathway to the first team.
“He is first to arrive and last to leave. He loves to put in the extra time and he is going to go far.”
Meanwhile, Greenwood has scored as many goals in open play this week as Marcus Rashford has in SIX-MONTHS.
