Official statement from Manchester United on Mason Greenwood


The future of Mason Greenwood at Manchester United has been a topic of discussion among supporters of the club and neutrals.

There have been rumours in the media that Mason Greenwood will be reinstated into the team after a series of meetings with the directors of the club.

However, Manchester United released a statement on its official website on Wednesday, August 16, 2023, to inform the public about the current situation of the player and how far they have gone with their internal investigations. The club confirmed that it was done with its investigation and the final decision will be made available to the public.

"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. This has 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. 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. 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."

The English international was suspended from the team following the incident with his girlfriend, who accused him of sexual and physical abuse. The midfielder has been cleared of all the charges that were brought against him.
