MASON GREENWOOD has infuriated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after twice turning up late for training.
The Manchester United manager had already warned him about his conduct following his expulsion from the England squad last month.

But the teenage star has now been axed from the last two United squads for the 4-1 win at Newcastle and midweek triumph over PSG.
Solskjaer has also grown sick of the striker’s general attitude so far this season.
His performance level has dropped significantly too not least in the 6-1 drubbing by Tottenham in United’s last home game at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer claimed ahead of the PSG game that it was not a disciplinary issue and that he was out the squad because he had a ‘niggle’.
The manager, however, refused to say what that ‘niggle’ was or when he got it.
Greenwood, 19, was also pictured swerving between posts during full training before the team flew out to Paris.
He now has some work to do to get back into Solskjaer’s good books.
It is unlikely he will start in the weekend’s home game against Chelsea given that United have produced two impressive performances without him.

It was the start of last month that Greenwood was expelled from the England camp after his debut against Iceland.
He and Phil Foden invited two girls back to the team hotel after the game in Reykjavik breaking strict team and Covid protocols.
Southgate was understood to be furious and left both players out of the Three Lions squads the three most recent internationals.
Solskjaer tried to defend Greenwood at the time claiming that the player had needed a physical and mental rest and should not have been called up for international duty.
