Piers Morgan has unleashed his wrath on unruly footballers who broke strict quarantine rules by having girls in a hotel bedroom.
Mason Greenwood, 18, and Phil Foden, 20, have been accused of breaking Iceland’s strict quarantine rules after having girls in a hotel bedroom.
England boss Gareth Southgate confirmed that the duo have been dropped and will not travel with the rest of the England squad from Iceland to Denmark this Monday afternoon ahead of England’s Nations League group game.
Furious Good Morning Britain host Piers took to Twitter to express his anger and slam the players as “selfish, reckless and stupid”.
The morning telly favourite, 55, grumbled on his social media page: “Their selfish reckless stupidity is bad, obviously.
“But how were they able to do this? Footballers need babysitting – by security guards – to protect them from themselves.”
Piers was responding to a tweet by Times reporter Martin Ziegler, which read: “Phil Foden + Mason Greenwood will not travel with rest of England squad from Iceland to Denmark this afternoon after breaking bubble in Reykjavik with girls.
“Gareth Southgate to confirm shortly.”
Greenwood and Foden’s “recklessness” has been condemned by their respective clubs, Manchester United and Manchester City.
Icelandic outlet DV claim to have Snapchat videos from two girls who met the England pair at the team’s hotel.
England’s players have been under strict rules during their time in Iceland, which included some exemptions for elite sports, according to DV.
The outlet reported: “According to the terms of the exemption, the players were not to meet anyone outside of their own team members outside of the field and were only allowed to go to practices and games.
“The rules the players were subject to have been confirmed by KSI, Iceland’s national Football Federation.
“According to DV’s source, the players were not even allowed to meet their families.”
