Mason Greenwood 'Likes' Instagram Post Defending Off-Field Issues At Manchester United

Mason Greenwood 'Likes' Instagram Post Defending Off-Field Issues At Manchester United

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has 'liked' a social media post that explains exactly why he's had a tough season.

Reports on Monday claimed Greenwood was omitted from the latest England squad at the request of United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 19-year-old missed Saturday's 3-1 win over Everton through illness, but it's believed Greenwood's attitude in training is concerning club staff.

He looks to have hit back by 'liking' an Instagram post stating fans should "leave the kid alone."

It reads: "'Greenwood looks tired' 'Greenwood isn't trying hard enough' 'Greenwood needs to fix up' Mason Greenwood just lost a close friend to suicide and has been endlessly attacked and abused by football fans and the media for months now, leave the kid alone."

United legend Gary Neville also shared his thoughts on the message and urged fans to read it.

Greenwood scored 17 goals in all competitions for United last season as they came third in the Premier League.

But this season has seen him in and out of the team for a number of reasons.

Greenwood put in a 'lethargic' display in training on Friday and staff are concerned a lack of sleep is hindering his development.

He is also reportedly 'failing to understand the process' when it comes to 100 per cent commitment in training.

In addition, the club's worries stem from his conduct when last on international duty, which saw him and Phil Foden break coronavirus protocol by inviting Icelandic women back to their hotel.

United haven't given up on Greenwood and hope he can mature into the world class talent he possesses.

Former United striker Andy Cole has hit back at Greenwood's critics and said he's still a 'baby' in the footballing world.

"He's a star in the making. If he gets his head right then he's definitely a star in the making. One hundred per cent," Cole told The Mirror.

"I'm hoping he will come through this. What's really upset me through this situation is I'm not sure why everyone keeps hounding him the way they do.

"He's a baby. If you don't make mistakes when you're a baby, when do you make your mistakes? In your 50s? He's a boy and he's made mistakes, he's held his hands up, let him go out there and play his football.

"Now judge him on his football because if we're judging him as an 18-year-old boy against what the average 18-year-old gets up to then we'll see what they all get up to."
