Mason Greenwood ‘banished from Man United training after England expulsion’

Published

on

Manchester United have reportedly informed Mason Greenwood that he must train on his own for the foreseeable future.

At the beginning of the week, Greenwood and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden were removed from the England squad for inviting two Icelandic girls to their hotel room, actions which broke coronavirus regulations in operation at the venue.

While both prospects have since apologised, they have faced heavy criticism, and it now appears that Greenwood has put his participation in United’s next competitive fixture in doubt.

According to The Sun, the 18-year-old has been told that he can only arrive at the club’s training facilities when manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the rest of the first-team squad have left the premises.

The report suggests that this will be enforced for ‘the next few days’, subsequently ruling Greenwood out of a pre-season friendly against Aston Villa at the weekend.

United do not begin their Premier League campaign until September 19, when they play host to Crystal Palace.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
