Man Utd and City slam Greenwood and Foden in brutal statements after England duo had girls back to hotel on England duty

MANCHESTER UNITED and Manchester City slammed Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden for breaking England's Covid-19 bubble.

The pair have been dumped from the Three Lions squad for the game against Denmark after inviting two girls to the hotel in Iceland, violating Covid rules.


Boss Gareth Southgate confirmed the shamed duo would be sent home.

Both players had made their international debuts in Saturday's 1-0 win over Iceland – Foden, 20, started the game and Greenwood, 18, came off the bench.

And their clubs did not hold back when condemning their actions in brutal statements.

A comment from United said: "Manchester United are liaising with the Football Association and are disappointed with the actions of Mason Greenwood over this situation."

A statement from City read: "It is clear that Phil’s actions were totally inappropriate.

"His behaviour not only directly contravenes strict guidelines related to Covid-19, but also falls well below the standard expected of a Manchester City player and England international."

Greenwood and Foden will not play in Denmark on Tuesday after reports from Iceland, including from newspaper DV, suggested the two girls posted photographs of the players on Snapchat.

The squad were exempt from Iceland's quarantine rules but still had strict rules to follow and were not allowed to meet any person outside the bubble.
