A statement from Old Trafford said: "Man United are liaising with the Football Association and are disappointed with the actions of Mason Greenwood over this situation."

City also commented on the issue: "It is clear that Phil’s actions were totally inappropriate.

"His behaviour not only directly contravenes strict guidelines related to Covid-19, but also falls well below the standard expected of a Man City player and England international."

After playing their first game in the 1-0 win over Iceland in the Nations League, both players will not be available to play against Denmark on Tuesday, September 8.

The pair invited two ladies into their hotel rooms in Iceland and the visitors posted photographs of the players on Snapchat.

It is understood the duo will be fined £1,360 each by Icelandic police for the legal breach of Covid-19 restrictions.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Manchester United's Mason Greenwood, along with his national team colleague Phil Foden, risk being sanctioned after being caught on camera with bringing girls to the England team in Iceland.

Both youngsters made their debut in Three Lions' 1-0 victory over Iceland in last weekend's UEFA Nations League encounter.

Daily Mail quoting Icelandic outlet DV claims both players failed to honour the guidelines given to the players for their safety amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Legit.ng also reported that Raheem Sterling has come under attack for blaming Liverpool defender Joe Gomez when he conceded a penalty against Iceland during their Nations League clash.

Both players have been involved in a row while on duty for England and almost came to blows before a Euro 2020 qualifier back in 2019.

The Nations League game against Iceland produced two red cards and two penalties which saw the Three Lions run away with an injury-time penalty scored by Sterling.
