Mason Greenwood has apologised after a video emerged appearing to show him inhaling laughing gas.
18 years old Manchester United forward admits to ‘poor judgement’ after inhaling laughing gas.
The English international appeared to inhale nitrous oxide from a balloon in a video, reportedly filmed a number of weeks ago, which was shared on social media platform Snapchat.
Sky sports reports that Greenwood is currently training away from the rest of the Manchester United squad as he awaits the results of a coronavirus test.
In his words, he apologized: “I have now been made aware of the health risks associated with this practice and accept that even trying it, as shown in these historical pictures, was poor judgement on my part.
“I strongly urge others not to follow my example.
“As an 18 year old I am learning all the time, however, this week I have also learned that I will be judged to a higher standard because of my career as a footballer and I must respect that in future. I am determined to repay the faith shown in me by my manager and coaches.”
His apology comes just a week after he and his friend, Manchester City Phil Foden, 20, were sent home from England duty for breaching coronavirus protocols
They were sent home from squad last week by Southgate after he and Phil Foden breached quarantine rules while on international duty in Iceland, by Inviting Girls over to the hotel.
