Video: Rio Ferdinand and Peter Crouch offer Mason Greenwood advice in light of off-field misdemeanors

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and popular ex-pro Peter Crouch have both weighed in on the current controversy surrounding United youngster Mason Greenwood after his recent off-field behaviour whilst away on international duty with England.

Greenwood, 18, made his England debut earlier this month when the Three Lions beat Iceland 1-0 in the Nations League. What was supposed to be a joyous occasion for the teenager turned into a nightmare when himself and compatriot Phil Foden were caught after the match trying to break quarantine rules by inviting a couple of Icelandic women back to their hotel.

The pair hit mainstream headlines all around the world and were subsequently dropped by gaffer Gareth Southgate for England’s second match against Denmark, as per Sky Sports.

Both players have since come out and publicly apologised for their poorly judged actions and both Ferdinand and Crouch believe it’s now time to move on but do admit that when players are under such an intense spotlight they do need to be more mindful of their actions.
