Mason Greenwood football career in tatters over his future uncertainty with the new season set to begin in August.
As a new season approaches, troubled attacker Mason Greenwood is still not considered for Manchester United.
Last month it was confirmed that Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has had his police bail extended once again as investigations continue.
Although he is currently free on bond, an investigation into the allegations of “rape and abuse of a young woman” and “suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill” is still underway.
Another application to extend his bail was made more than six months after the shocking allegations surfaced, and it was duly approved during a hearing at the end of June.
However, there has been little further information that has been made public, and the only real certainty is that Greenwood remains indefinitely suspended by Manchester United until the police clarify its position on the case.
This uncertainty puts Mason Greenwood football career in tatters with the new season set to begin next month.
Recently, talk started to do the rounds on social media suggesting that he could soon be set to return to training with United, but these rumours were quickly and emphatically refuted.
Man United have reaffirmed their “strong condemnation” of violence after he was arrested, although the club are still said to be paying his full salary (reported to be £75,000-a-week) as the police investigation continues.
The club made their new 2022-23 shirt available for sale a few days ago, but as the Daily Express points out, the store: “won’t enable fans to buy their new home shirt with Mason Greenwood’s name and number on the back.”
Greenwood has not spoken publicly since the story broke, but he was recently pictured for the first time since he was arrested, while a video has also emerged showing him being taunted by a ‘fan’.
A video shows a man seemingly shouting comments such as “quarantine” and “sh***y a**e” at Greenwood, who is is clearly exasperated by the interaction, and seemingly swipes his hand for the man to leave him alone.
Recently, there has been some social media debate over the fact that his profile was still visible on Manchester United’s website, but United repeatedly reiterated that Greenwood’s status at the club remains unchanged.
“There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” the club said.
“We removed his profile from the club app soon after he was removed from the squad in January. This was in order to remove Mason from interactive elements of the app, such as team predictions etc.
“However, his profile was never removed from the website as he remains a Manchester United player, albeit not currently part of the squad while the legal process unfolds.”
