Solskjaer stressed that Greenwood should have been rested after his breakthrough season with the club

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood’s first England call-up ended with him being disciplined for breaking Covid-19 rules but club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Friday the 18-year old should not have been part of the squad.

Video footage this month showed Greenwood and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden allegedly inviting women to their hotel rooms after England’s 1-0 Nations League win over Iceland in Reykjavik and both players were sent home.

England boss Gareth Southgate said the duo would have to regain his trust before they can be considered for selection again but Solskjaer stressed that Greenwood should have been rested after his breakthrough season with the club.

United’s off-season was also disrupted by captain Harry Maguire’s suspended prison sentence of 21 months and 10 days after being accused of various charges following an alleged brawl during a family holiday on the island of Mykonos.

The 27-year old England defender has maintained his innocence and was granted a full retrial after appealing against the verdict.

Solskjaer, however, said that the incident could be on Maguire’s mind as he returns to the pitch.
