Goal’s NxGn 2020 award winners have been announced, with the football website running the rule over the best teenage talents in the beautiful game.
Real Madrid’s Rodrygo was the winner in the men’s category, with Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati coming second and Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood placing third.
It’s an impressive achievement considering he only made his Premier League debut around 12 months ago, but some United fans aren’t happy with the 18-year-old’s final ranking.
In fairness, Greenwood has scored 14 goals in all competitions this season – including five in the Premier League – whereas Rodrygo’s bagged nine and Fati’s netted five.
The game isn’t all about goals, of course, but that’s perhaps why some Red Devils fans are claiming that a bias towards La Liga’s top clubs has pushed Greenwood down to third, with several declaring the United forward is better than his Barcelona and Real Madrid counter-parts.
