Mason Greenwood, 18-years-old, issued an apology statement today through Manchester United.
“Having now had the chance to reflect on what’s happened, I can only apologize to everyone for the embarrassment I have caused,” the young superstar said. ““It was irresponsible of me to break the COVID-19 protocols which are in place to protect players, staff and the public.
“Playing for England was one of the proudest moments in my life and I only have myself to blame for this huge mistake. I promise my family, the fans, Manchester United and England that this is a lesson I will learn from.”
