Man United Manager Solskjaer Unhappy With FA Over Handling of Mason Greenwood

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed his unhappiness Friday at the Football Association’s handling of Mason Greenwood surrounding the teenage striker’s first call-up by England in the offseason.

Solskjaer said United tried to prevent the 18-year-old Greenwood from joining up with England, believing he needed some rest after his breakthrough season.

While on national team duty, Greenwood was put in front of the media for his first major public news conference, made his debut a few days later in Iceland, and then was dropped from the squad for breaching coronavirus rules by meeting up with women from outside the team bubble.
