Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Gives His View On Mason Greenwood’s England Axe

3 months ago

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he understands why England boss Gareth Southgate left Mason Greenwood out of his latest squad.

The pair invited two women into the team hotel, following England’s 1-0 Nations League win over Iceland, and were sent home when their actions came to light the following morning.

Southgate omitted the pair from his latest squad, with United boss Solskjaer – who spoke with the England boss this week – acknowledging the decision to leave him out will ultimately benefit Greenwood.

“Mason is one of the top strikers of the future for England and I’m sure he’s going to play many games for England,” said Solskjaer.

“This now has been a learning curve for him, Mason has to reflect on where he’s at, what he needs to do and how to get where he wants to get.

“I had a very nice chat with Gareth about our England players and it’s important, at this time, for players to get some minutes.

“We’ll get loads of training in for Mason, and I respect Gareth’s decision.”
