Mason Greenwood is facing another backlash from the Manchester United fans after photos emerged of the striker inhaling nitrous oxide at a party week before he was sent home from Iceland while on England duty.
Greenwood and teammate Phil Foden had been apologized last week after breaking COVID rules while in Iceland; a move that saw the duo miss England’s UEFA Nation’s League clash against Denmark.
The Sun showed the 18-year-old filling a balloon with nitrous oxide from a canister before appearing to inhale to the substance.
Inhaling nitrous oxide, also known as 'laughing gas' or 'hippy crack', can have serious health risks including heart attacks and brain damage, while prolonged use can lead to memory loss and vitamin deficiency.
The report indicates the United ace last night admitted poor judgement and said he had been made aware of the health risks.
A source for the Sun suggested Greenwood inhaled the gas in a Manchester apartment, with the video uploaded by the girl he partied with on Snapchat.
