Manchester City have released a statement after Phil Foden was sent home from England duty for breaching Covid-19 rules in Iceland.

The statement read:

“Manchester City FC are aware of the story which has emerged today from the England national team camp in relation to the behaviour of Phil Foden. We have also seen the comments from England manager Gareth Southgate.

It is clear that Phil’s actions were totally inappropriate.

His behaviour not only directly contravenes strict guidelines related to Covid-19, but also falls well below the standard expected of a Manchester City player and England international.

The Club supports the FA regarding this incident, and officials from the Club are now in touch in relation to Phil’s enforced early return to the UK.

We have no further comment to make on this matter.”
