Scholes believes Greenwood has ‘great potential and is talented enough to be considered a regular starter up front for the Red Devils.

Greenwood, who has found himself playing primarily as a winger or No. 10 this season, is the Red Devils’ second overall scorer with five goals in all competitions.

Speaking on the Webby and O’Neill channel, Scholes shared his thoughts on the United striker and where he thinks Greenwood should play to bring out the best in him.

“Mason Greenwood is a brilliant player – great potential. The manager keeps taking him off; he’s almost become a little bit of a scapegoat, a little bit of an easy target because he’s a young player,” Scholes said.

“He should be playing up front for this team. As good as [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Edinson] Cavani are and have been throughout their careers, for Manchester United’s center-forwards to be 37 and 34 just tells us where the club is at.

“Greenwood has to be playing now – and in the future. He is a highly-talented lad and I’m frustrated when I watch him because you know he’s going to be the first man off every single time.

“He’s been shoved out in those wide areas – the lad is an out-and-out center-forward. He will score goals in this team – no doubt about that.”
