Man Utd Say No Decision Made On Mason Greenwood’s Future After Report Striker May Return To Club

Manchester United have released a statement saying a “decision has not yet been made” on the future of Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood has been suspended from the club since January last year following claims of domestic abuse which emerged on social media.

He was charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour. Those charges were later dropped.

In a statement the club said: “The fact-finding phase of our investigation is now complete, and we are in the final stages of making a decision on Mason’s future.

“Contrary to media speculation, that decision has not yet been made and is currently the subject of intensive internal deliberation. Responsibility ultimately rests with the Chief Executive Officer.

“Once made, the decision will be communicated and explained to the club’s internal and external stakeholders.

“This has been a difficult case for everyone associated with Manchester United, and we understand the strong opinions it has provoked based on the partial evidence in the public domain. We ask for patience as we work through the final stages of this carefully considered process.”

The club said its investigation had “drawn on extensive evidence and context not in the public domain, and we have heard from numerous people with direct involvement or knowledge of the case”.

“Following the dropping of all charges against Mason Greenwood in February 2023, Manchester United has conducted a thorough investigation into the allegations made against him,” the club added.

“Throughout this process, the welfare and perspective of the alleged victim has been central to the club’s inquiries, and we respect her right to lifelong anonymity.

“We also have responsibilities to Mason as an employee, as a young person who has been with the club since the age of seven, and as a new father with a partner.”

It follows a report in The Athletic that suggested club chiefs were planning to bring Greenwood back into the first-team squad.
