OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has heaped praise on Mason Greenwood after he used his time in lockdown to pack on some muscle.

The young forward, 18, was already a favourite of the Manchester Unitedboss - having scored 12 times in just 16 starts this season.

But Greenwood was clearly keen to make the most of his time in lockdown, returning looking "more like a man", according to his boss.

Solskjaer said: "Mason is a young boy. He's still 18 and this lockdown period has done him all the good in the world.

"At his age, they do develop and fill out and Mason's looking more and more like a man, so definitely it will help him.

"Sometimes early on you could see he was a kid.

"Now in training he can use his strength better and he has done really well over the three or four weeks we have been training now.

"And his quality in front of goal has always been there and now he has muscle to push defenders away."
