    Mason Greenwood ‘needs to see a sports psychologist’, says Crystal Palace star Andros Townsend

    Mason Greenwood ‘needs to see a sports psychologist’, says Crystal Palace star Andros Townsend amid Manchester United’s growing concerns over his attitude and lifestyle

    • Andros Townsend has urged Mason Greenwood to see a sports psychologist
    • The Manchester United striker’s attitude has led to criticism away from the pitch
    • He missed the Everton game because his performance in training was below-par
    • There are concerns at the club over Greenwood’s lifestyle, specifically his sleep 
    • Greenwood was also sent home from England duty in disgrace in September 

    Andros Townsend has urged Manchester United starlet Mason Greenwood to see a sports psychologist to help him through the difficulties he is facing at present.

    Despite his impressive breakthrough into the United first-team squad last season, Greenwood has attracted criticism off the pitch with the club increasingly concerned over his attitude. 

    Greenwood did not feature in Saturday’s 3-1 win at Everton with illness cited as the reason, but as Sportsmail reported on Tuesday, it is understood that his performance in training on Friday was below-par.

    There are also concerns at the club over Greenwood’s lifestyle, specifically the amount of sleep and rest he is getting to stay in the condition needed to perform at the highest level. 

    Last month it emerged that United had spoken to the 19-year-old over his time-keeping around the club. 

    Crystal Palace winger Townsend has now advised Greenwood to sit down with a sports psychologist to ‘help him through’ his struggles away from the pitch. 

    Speaking on talkSPORT, Townsend said: ‘Of course it starts with the player himself, but I can empathise with Mason Greenwood having been through that “build you up to knock you down” media scrutiny.

    ‘It’s tough and he needs players around him like Harry Magiure, experienced players who have been through it, to put their arm around him. He needs his manager to stay by his side, which I know Ole probably will.

    ‘He needs family and good friends around him, and the other thing is he needs to see a sports psychologist. Somebody who has spoken to other players in his position and who knows what’s going on from the outside to help him through it.

    ‘I have no doubt Mason Greenwood is a very young player who seems to have his head screwed on. Yes, he’s made mistakes, but, yes, he is young and learning. If he gets over this little blip he’s on then he will get to the other side a better player.’

    United were also forced to deny speculation on Monday that the teenager was involved in an exchange of words with Bruno Fernandes during a session at Carrington after he failed to chase a pass from his team-mate.  

    In September, Greenwood was sent home from England duty when he and team-mate Phil Foden broke Covid-19 protocol by inviting girls to the team hotel in Iceland. United issued a statement saying they were ‘disappointed’. 

    While Foden has been recalled for this month’s three international matches, Greenwood was omitted following discussions between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Gareth Southgate.

    It is understood that Solskjaer wanted Greenwood, who has only made four starts for his club this season and is yet to complete a full 90 minutes, to train at Carrington instead. 

    United are said to feel that Greenwood — who also admitted to ‘poor judgment’ in September after a video emerged of him inhaling nitrous oxide – needs to focus on his development as a footballer.

    Greenwood burst onto the scene last season, scoring 17 goals in 49 appearances for the senior side. This term he has two goals in eight games.
