"If he keeps fit, it's up to him (to keep his place). The whole season he's had says a lot for him. He is just going to be better and better. In a couple of years' time he will be more or less the complete No9," he told via

Greenwood has been in-and-out of the starting lineup for United this season and most of the occasions, Solskjaer has opted to place the youngster on the bench in order to shed any scoring burden.
