THE football career of Mason Greenwood is over as far as Manchester United are concerned.

An internal investigation that was subsequently conducted by the Old Trafford club into Greenwood’s behaviour after he was arrested in January 2022, has now been completed the Premier League giants confirmed this Monday, August 21.

Even after a case against the 21-year-old including accusations of attempted rape, assault and coercive control was previously dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in February, his future at United was always hanging in the balance.

United issued a statement

A statement from the club read: ‘Manchester United has concluded its internal investigation into the allegations made against Mason Greenwood’.

It continued: ‘Our process commenced in February 2023, following all charges against Mason being dropped. Throughout, we have taken into account the wishes, rights and perspective of the alleged victim along with the club’s standards and values, and sought to collate as much information and context as possible’.

‘This has required us to proceed with sensitivity and care to obtain evidence not in the public domain, including from those with direct knowledge of the case’, the statement explained.

‘Based on the evidence available to us, we have concluded that the material posted online did not provide a full picture and that Mason did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged. That said, as Mason publicly acknowledges today, he has made mistakes which he is taking responsibility for’, it continued.

‘All those involved, including Mason, recognise the difficulties with him recommencing his career at Manchester United. It has therefore been mutually agreed that it would be most appropriate for him to do so away from Old Trafford, and we will now work with Mason to achieve that outcome’, the club concluded.

Greenwood issued a response

Greenwood has not kicked a ball for the Red Devils since his suspension after being arrested. Today’s decision was reportedly reached by United’s CEO Richard Arnold, along with Joel Glazer, one of the club’s American owners.
Despite Erik ten Hag and the majority of his squad backing the player, there was believed to be unrest among certain members of the staff when it was suggested recently that Greenwood should be given a second chance.

In a tweet, the respected Italian football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano posted Greenwood’s full statement that he made in response to the club’s announcement.

It now remains to be seen what becomes of the player who has been at Old Trafford since he was seven years of age.
