Manchester United has provided a formal update on Mason Greenwood’s future plans.
After assault charges were dropped at the start of the year, United conducted an internal review of Greenwood’s status with the club.
“Following the dismissal of all charges against Mason Greenwood in February 2023, Manchester United has conducted a thorough investigation into the allegations made against him,” United said in a statement.
“We have heard from numerous people with direct involvement or knowledge of the case, and we have drawn on extensive evidence and context that are not in the public domain.”
“Throughout this process, the alleged victim’s welfare and perspective have been central to the club’s inquiries, and we respect her right to lifelong anonymity.”
“We also have obligations to Mason as an employee, as a young man who has been with the club since he was seven years old, and as a new father with a partner.”
“The fact-finding phase of our investigation is now complete, and we are nearing the conclusion of Mason’s future.”
“Contrary to media speculation, that decision has yet to be made and is currently under intense internal deliberation.” The Chief Executive Officer is ultimately responsible.
“When a decision is made, it 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 feelings it has elicited based on the limited evidence available in the public domain.” We appeal for your patience while we complete the last stages of this well-planned process.”
