Man United supporters fume over Gareth Southgate’s Mason Greenwood comments


Manchester United’s supporters have taken to social media in their droves on Thursday night, to respond to fresh comments on the part of Gareth Southgate, regarding Mason Greenwood.

Kane in/Sancho out

The latest Three Lions squad was of course unveiled earlier today.

Ahead of a pair of crunch World Cup qualifiers versus Albania and San Marino over the coming weeks, Gareth Southgate selected a 25-man strong panel expected to guide their nation to a spot at next year’s Qatar showpiece.

A whole host of recognisable names were included, with the likes of Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford, as expected, handed call-ups:

However, just as much chatter surrounded those not opted for by Southgate, with Emile Smith Rowe and Fikayo Tomori having no doubt been left feeling hard done-by.

A trio of Manchester United attackers will too be forced to watch on from home when their country return to action in a little over a week’s time, with none of Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood or Jesse Lingard having been deemed worthy of a place in the Three Lions’ setup this time round.

‘Only chance…’

And, as outlined above, on Thursday night, Southgate’s comments surrounding his decision not to call up one Red Devils star in particular has caused quite a stir online.

The player in question? Mason Greenwood.

Speaking to the media this evening, the England boss was drawn on United talent Greenwood’s latest international omission, and went on to explain:

‘This is his [Greenwood] and his family’s only chance [to make a success of his career] and they are understandably a lot more cautious than we might be.’

‘He [Greenwood] recognises if he doesn’t get it right over a longer period, doesn’t nail down the situation at Manchester United then maybe there isn’t an England career anyway.’

The 2nd set of comments outlined above, however, have not gone down at all well with the Manchester United faithful…

Taking to social media on Thursday night, supporters of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have made no secret of their frustrations with Southgate, with just some of the many highlights showcased below:
