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.”
