GREEN LIGHT FOR GREENWOOD
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has given the green light for Mason Greenwood to join up with England this month.
The Manchester United boss wasn’t happy his 19-year-old star was called up for the international break in September which saw Greenwood and Manchester City star Phil Foden axed after breaching Covid rules in Iceland. Solskjaer asked for
Greenwood not to be included in the September squad, feeling the youngster needed a break after playing 50 games last season.
That led to tension with Southgate – but the issue has been sorted with Solskjaer revealing he’s spoken with the Three Lions boss.
And he’s now content for Greenwood to join up for the friendly with the Republic of Ireland and the final Uefa
Nations League qualifiers against Belgium and Iceland.
“It’s Gareth’s decision who he wants in his team and I had a very good conversation with him before the last squad get together,” said the United boss.
“I don’t want to interfere. It’s his decision who he chooses and if he wants to pick any of my players they are available of course.”
