Mason Greenwood pays tribute to Manchester United teammate Edinson Cavani, branding the Uruguay international "a top striker".

Mason Greenwood has paid tribute to "top striker" Edinson Cavani, with the Uruguay international impressing since arriving at Manchester United last summer.

Cavani has scored five times in 18 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions, including four goals in 12 Premier League outings.

Greenwood has featured alongside the 33-year-old in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first XI this season, and the youngster has revealed his admiration for the South American.

"He's a top striker, you can tell the second he came here," Greenwood told United's official website. "The stuff he does, the way he dresses himself, the way he trains, the way he does everything right as a footballer, really.

"He reminds me a lot of Juan [Mata] who's here as well, and Nemanja [Matic] - two great professional players. It's always good to have them in your team, as a young lad, to look up to."

Greenwood has only netted one Premier League goal this season but both scored and assisted during United's 3-2 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup last weekend.
