Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Gareth Southgate‘s decision to leave Mason Greenwood out of the latest England squad following his breach of Covid-19 protocol in Iceland.

Greenwood and Manchester City‘s Phil Foden were sent home in disgrace from international duty last month after inviting two girls into the team hotel.

Southgate left the pair out of his latest squad, announced on Thursday, for the friendly against Wales and two UEFA Nations League matches with Belgium and Denmark.

United manager Solskjaer said he had no issue with Greenwood not being called up for England duty having discussed the issue with Southgate.

‘Mason is one of the top strikers of the future for England and for sure he is going to play many games for England,’ Solskjaer said. ‘This now obviously has been a learning curve for him.

‘Mason has to reflect on where he’s at and what he needs to do, how to get to where he wants to get to.

‘I had a very nice chat with Gareth about our players and the England possibles. As I’ve said, games are very important for players to get some minutes but we’ll get loads of training into Mason. I respect Gareth’s decision, definitely.’
