Peterborough United Director of Football Barry Fry has told This Is Futbol that he would take Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood to the European Championships this summer if it were his decision, with the possibility being heightened by the revelation that manager Gareth Southgate can now pick a squad of 26 players instead of 23
Greenwood has been in fine form for United this season, particularly in recent weeks.
The 19-year-old has scored four goals in his last four Premier League outings, while also laying on an assist against Tottenham Hotspur.
Do you think Greenwood can become world-class?
In total, he has scored nine goals and registered six assists this term, playing primarily in a right wing position under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Greenwood has won one cap for England, playing 12 minutes in the Nations League clash with Iceland in September.
There has been a level of controversy surrounding Greenwood at international level – he was excluded from the squad following that fixture after breaking COVID-19 protocols.
He has not been in the squad since but Fry believes that he should be included in the squad for this summer’s tournament.
Speaking to TIF, Fry was asked if he would take Greenwood, and said: “I would, yes.
“Yeah, because he can come in from either flank and he can play down the middle.
“But I think I’d be in the minority with that, because I’m a United fan.”
