Mason Greenwood Arrested over Rape Claims on Social Media

Mason Greenwood, a 20-year Manchester United player, was arrested for assault on Sunday after a woman posted visual and audio allegations of rape and assault on social media. The lady claims to have been physically assaulted by the Manchester United forward. Greenwood has not responded to the allegations yet.

Despite originally being due back at training, Man Utd have now said that 20-year-old forward Greenwood will not play games or return to training until cleared.

The police did not release the identity of Greenwood but they provided information to clarify their investigation following rumors about him.

The Greater Manchester Police were made aware of online posts featuring images and videos of a woman reporting incidents of violence earlier today. An investigation was launched and following enquiries we can confirm that a man in his 20s has been arrested on suspicion of assault. That is the statement given by the police.

“He is still being questioned. We’re still investigating these events.”

Greenwood is a player that came up through the Manchester Academy and then into the first team. A year ago, his contract was extended to 2025.

Manchester United, as a club, does not condone violence of any kind.

When the allegations against Greenwood were first made public, there was no response from the star or any representatives. The silence has led to speculation about what will happen next.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust has said that Mason Greenwood won’t be returning to training or matches until further notice. They fully support the club’s decision.

Nike, which sponsors Greenwood, have commented the following in a statement through their spokesperson: “We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
