Man Utd coach outlines message club are sending to Greenwood and Williams

Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have been urged to keep their feet firmly on the ground if they want to be established first-team players at Man Utd in the long term.

The duo have forced their way into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans at Old Trafford this season after breaking into the senior set-up.

Greenwood is regarded as one of the brightest talents in the United youth ranks, while Williams has also been plucked out of the academy to become a regular starter down the left flank.

Kieran McKenna is one of the coaches at United credited with the pair's development, but he insists there is still a long way to go for them both.

"Those two that you have mentioned have certainly made a good impact this year," McKenna told  The Impartial Reporter.  "They have played a lot of games and shown that they can operate at this level.

"The messages that we are continually giving them is that it is very, very early days in their career and they need to keep their feet on the floor and continue working hard in training, not take anything for granted and still appreciate day-to-day the privilege of the position that they are in."

Greenwood boasts a decent scoring record in the United side, notching 12 times this season despite being largely reduced to appearances as a substitute.

Williams has actually made three more league appearances than Greenwood this campaign, but has earned the trust of Solskjaer, who often deploys the 19-year-old in front of Luke Shaw at wing-back.
