Mason Greenwood has been warned regarding his discipline by Manchester United, with the 19-year-old’s late timekeeping a particular issue.

The forward has failed to report promptly on a number of occasions recently and so has been reminded of his responsibilities.

Greenwood, who enjoyed a breakthrough season of 17 goals last season, was not in Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s squad for United’s past two matches. These were the 4-1 win at Newcastle on Saturday and the 2-1 victory against Paris Saint-Germain in their opening Champions League group game on Tuesday.

Before the win in Paris, Solskjær was asked whether it was correct that Greenwood was not in the squad because of an off-field issue. The manager denied this and stated Greenwood had a “niggle”. Although it is understood the player has had a minor problem, he was also censured regarding his tardiness.

Greenwood is considered one of the brightest prospects to emerge from United’s academy so Solskjær will be intent that the forward retains focus.

The warning from United follows Greenwood being sent home last month from Iceland when with England. He and Manchester City’s Phil Foden breached Covid regulations when each invited a woman to a room at the team hotel. – Guardian
