Ralf Rangnick admits he'd love to give Man United forward more game time after cameo vs Crystal Palace

Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has claimed that he would love to give ‘gifted’ Mason Greenwood more playing time after his fine display against Crystal Palace.

Greenwood entered the game as a second-half substitute and provided the assist to Fred’s second half stunner.

The England international, who has scored four goals in the Premier League this season, has been limited to substitute appearances following the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.

The 20-year-old started on the bench against Palace under his new boss, Ralf Rangnick, but came on late in the game and made a positive impact.

And Rangnick has promised that fans would get to see Greenwood make more appearances for the Red Devils in the future.

“Mason [Greenwood] did so well at the start of the season, I think he scored three or four goals in the first three games, he’s a very gifted homegrown player and I would love to give him more game-time in the future,” said Rangnick.

Speaking on his substitutes, the German boss said: “We wanted to win, desperately.

“For me, it was logical to bring Mason [Greenwood] on that position and Anthony [Elanga] and, in the end, Donny [van de Beek] to replace Bruno.

“It went well, we scored the goal and deserved to win in the end.”

Mason Greenwood contracted COVID-19 a day before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s last game in charge of Manchester United against Watford.

Upon his recovery, he made the bench against Chelsea last weekend but did not take any part as it ended 1-1 at Stamford Bridge.

He came on as a second-half sub against Arsenal and did the same against Palace, today.
