Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood is going through a tough time, at the moment. After impressing with his goal-scoring prowess since the restart, Greenwood has witnessed a drop in form while seeing his name dropped from the Manchester United’s Premier League squad for a couple of matches. He has been dropped from the England national side as well. 

The 19-year-old has managed to net just two goals so far for Manchester United in the 2020-21 season and there were reports that the Red Devils are growing concerned with Greenwood’s attitude and lifestyle with other reports suggesting the youngster is not getting enough sleep.

“Mason Greenwood has just lost a close friend to suicide and has been endlessly attacked and abused by football fans and the media for months now, leave the kid alone.”

Earlier, Crystal Palace forward Andros Townsend urged Greenwood to see a sports psychologist in a bid to get rid of his problems. 

“He needs players around him like Harry Maguire, experienced players who have been through it, to put their arm around him,” Townsend said on talkSPORT, per the Daily Mail.

“He needs his manager to stay by his side, which I know Ole probably will.

“He needs family and good friends around him, and the other thing is he needs to see a sports psychologist.

“Somebody who has spoken to other players in his position and who knows what's going on from the outside to help him through it.”
