Phil Foden has issued a public apology for breaking coronavirus guidelines during his time with the England squad.

The Man City playmaker and Man United forward Mason Greenwood were sent home from international duty for inviting girls back to their hotel room on Sunday.

Both players made their senior England debuts in Saturday’s 1-0 Nations League win over Iceland, however they will play no part in Tuesday’s clash with Denmark.

In a statement on social media, Foden, 20, said: “Following the story which has emerged today regarding my actions in Iceland, I want to make a full apology.”

“I apologise to Gareth Southgate, to my England teammates, to the staff, supporters, and also to my club and my family.”

“When I was called up by Gareth for these games, my first reaction was that of immense pride.”

“To pull on that shirt for the senior team in my England debut was an incredible privilege.”

“I am a young player with a lot to learn, but I am aware of the huge responsibility I have in representing Manchester City and England at this level.”

Man City condemned Foden’s actions in a strongly-worded statement.

It read: “Manchester City FC are aware of the story which has emerged today from the England national team camp in relation to the behaviour of Phil Foden.”

“We have also seen the comments from England manager Gareth Southgate. It is clear that Phil’s actions were totally inappropriate.”
