Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood has been filmed inhaling hippy crack weeks before his England troubles.
The teen was in hot water last week after he and Manchester City Phil Foden were sent home from England duty after being caught breaking Covid-19 protocols by reportedly inviting Icelandic girls back to their hotel.
Now, the Sun have obtained footage showing Greenwood and a friend appearing to inhale laughing gas weeks prior to the England furore.
Greenwood has tonight released a statement urging others not to follow his lead after learning of the health risks associated with inhaling the gas.
Speaking about the video, filmed on Snapchat, a source told the Sun: “Mason often goes to the apartment after nights out and likes to have a good time.
“But he should know better given he’s a top sportsman.
“He has been a bit silly doing it, and especially allowing it to be videoed.
"A lot of people around Manchester are doing it at parties — quite a lot are Mason’s age.
“The canister looks like a really big one where you’d get much more laughing gas in one hit. You can get as many as 20 hits in one go.
"This was Mason and his friend getting together and having what they thought was a laugh.
"But he has learned a few hard lessons recently and this could be another one.”
Tonight in a statement issued through United, Greenwood said: “I have now been made aware of the health risks associated with this practice — and accept that even trying it, as shown in these historical pictures, was poor judgment on my part.
