Manchester United striker, Mason Greenwood apologized for breaking the COVID-19 Protocols
The United attacker was sent home from England duty on Monday after reports in Iceland claimed he and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden had met up with local girls in the team hotel and consequently broken strict Covid-19 rules.
The pair were both fined £1,360 for the breach of pandemic rules and both were criticised by England manager Gareth Southgate and their respective clubs.
Greenwood apologize in his statement below:
“Having now had the chance to reflect on what’s happened, I can only apologize to everyone for the embarrassment I have caused.
“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 apologize 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.”
