Man Utd title winner Berbatov tells Greenwood: Learn from this quickly

Manchester United title winner Dimitar Berbatov has urged Mason Greenwood to learn quickly from his England axe.

Greenwood and Manchester City's Phil Foden were sent home after the 1-0 win over Iceland after details emerged that they had brought two women into the team hotel.

"I hope his England antics don't hamper his chances [of Man United selection]. We have all been young players and done stupid things," Betfair Ambassador Berbatov told the Mirror.

"He will get some sort of a punishment, he can apologise and learn from those mistakes and hopefully they'll never be repeated again.

"Given the right environment, that is United, the players and manager around him, he is in the right place to become a great player - but only if he remains focused and chases that goal. He needs to stay in the right lane.

"Yes, you are going to have difficulty going forward with your career, you'll have ups and downs, but stay focused. If he can do that he will be OK."
