Manchester United boss Solskjaer explains reason behind Greenwood absence

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits withdrawing Mason Greenwood from the frontline.

However, Solskjaer insists the youngster maintains his full confidence.

He said today, "You have to take a step back sometimes, the boy's only 19, he's had a fantastic year, if we go a year back I left him out of the Carabao Cup against Chelsea, Mason stayed back and played against Doncaster in the Checkatrade Trophy to get game time, that's how far he's come. Now he's got 19 goals, made his England debut, scored in his first Under-21s game and of course the headlines are gonna be about when he scores and doesn't play.

“Everyone's allowed to not be well, if you're not well you can't train. He's been away eight or nine days from training, we're just building him up again and I have no doubts about him.

“He has a very good head on him and the talent is there for all to see."
