Football is a funny old game. Clubs try to do things differently to suit their style. Manchester United’s mantra has always been the promotion and development of youth. That will never change.
The latest to benefit from that is Mason Greenwood. Within the space of a few days, the superstar teenager has made his Champions League and Premier League debut; against both PSG and Arsenal respectively.
Young English players coming through is what we all love to see, as it benefits us not only at club level, but on the international stage as well…
Greenwood will no doubt be hoping to don the Three Lions jersey in future, playing with some of the best players this country has to offer. One of those guys is Raheem Sterling.
Love him or hate him, you cannot deny his ability, class, and resilience. Today, he further proved his self-worth by sending a congratulatory text to Greenwood following his debut(s), the Daily Mail report.
At times like these, it’s so easy to get caught up in the domestic rivalry and forget about friends and such. This is an incredible, yet simple gesture from Sterling; a player who Greenwood will look up to and have the utmost respect for.
It’s these sort of things that define a man. It goes way beyond what happens on a football field, and for that, you have to salute Sterling. Fair play, young man!
