Mason Greenwood forced to train alone on return to Man Utd training after England ax


Mason Greenwood was forced to train on his own after showing up to Manchester United for the first time since his shame in England. Striker Greenwood has been sent off from the England squad along with Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden, for breaking Covid-19 protocols.

The duo were sent home by boss Gareth Southgate after introducing two women to the English hotel in Reykjavik after their 1-0 UEFA Nations League victory over Iceland.

Upon arriving at United’s AON training complex, Greenwood learned he had to train away from the rest of the United squad, due to the potential risk of coronavirus.

It is understood that Greenwood underwent a light training session, under the supervision of United’s fitness staff, away from the rest of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

The 18-year-old, who was tested for coronavirus following his violation of international service protocol, is expected to join the United squad early next week.

Young forward Greenwood returned to Carrington on Thursday

Although United have issued a statement in which they expressed their “disappointment” at Greenwood’s conduct, because the episode occurred on international service, the club are unlikely to formally discipline him.

Greenwood, who made his way into United’s first team last season scoring 17 goals, is pushing for a starting spot in their Premier League opener, at home against Crystal Palace, a week tomorrow.

United striker Marcus Rashford has admitted that the success of big rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in winning the title in recent seasons has been a huge motivator ahead of the new campaign.

“I think it’s natural for anyone who plays for the club or for anyone who’s from Manchester,” Rashford said. “We have to use all of this as motivation to keep improving as a team.

“But we can’t lose sight of what’s important, and that’s developing our own team and keeping improving. ”
