Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has issued an apology after he was axed by England for meeting girls in a room at the team’s hotel in Iceland at the weekend.
‘Having now had the chance to reflect on what’s happened, I can only apologise to everyone for the embarrassment I have caused,’ read a statement from Greenwood.
‘It was irresponsible of me to break the COVID-19 protocols which are in place to protect players, staff and the public.
‘In particular, I want to apologise to Gareth Southgate, for letting him down, when he had shown great trust in me. Playing for England was one of the proudest moments in my life and I only have myself to blame for this huge mistake.
‘I promise my family, the fans, Manchester United and England that this is a lesson I will learn from.’
