Former United striker Andy Cole also suggested he had a ‘capricious’ skill for the goal.
Now even Foden, who plays for rivals Manchester City, can only be impressed by his talent in the box.
Mason Greenwood, the best I’ve seen in finish. He is both on foot. He always scores in and around the box, ‘he said Premier League Uncut.
‘High in finish [compared to Sergio Aguero]. For his age, he is incredible. I honestly don’t know how he does it.
Foden suggested that Greenwood was almost on the same level as teammate Sergio Aguero
“Just the right type of shot, you know what I mean. He knows when to fine tune or string it and he shoots quickly, the keeper is never stable or stuck. ‘
However, Foden not only limited his praise to Greenwood, but emphasized Chelsea pair Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James as two other young players to keep an eye out for.
(Callum’s) quickly. I’ve played with him before. He is a talented player and he shoots quickly. He uses it well, “he added.
“Callum is very good at dribbling, to be honest. One against one, widely spread out in those areas, he is incredible.
Greenwood has scored three goals in the last two Premier League games for Manchester United
“I like Reece James for the physical. I think he is powerful. When I see him play, he’s doing really well. He can defend and move forward, which I like to see. He is so strong. ‘
When it came to players in his own position, he claimed to be “impressed” with Leicester’s James Maddison.
Foden said, “Even the small steps between the holes, it’s always the right weight.
“He just kills the defense and breaks the lines, it just makes it easier for the people in the front, they know they will be found.
“I’m really impressed with him.”
