Mason Greenwood (22, Manchester United) expresses his dissatisfaction with the club that did not support him.
Britain’s ‘The Sun’ reported on the 4th (Korean time), “Mason Greenwood is disappointed with Manchester United who doubt him. He is considering playing in China instead of England.”
Manchester local prosecutors announced on the 3rd that they would drop the charges against Greenwood for attempted rape and assault. Greenwood was investigated by police for sexually assaulting his girlfriend in February of last year. After that, he was put under house arrest and was due to stand trial in November.
Prosecutors said, “The main witness has withdrawn his testimony, and there is no realistic prospect of convicting him as there is no possibility of new evidence coming out. We have a duty to stop the case.”
Greenwood made his United first team debut in 2018 and scored 35 goals and 12 assists in 129 games. Greenwood is still a part of the Manchester United first-team squad.
Manchester United said: “We inform you that the prosecution has dropped all charges against Greenwood. There will be no further comment.”
Regarding Greenwood, The Sun said, “Man Utd’s stance is that even after the verdict of acquittal, it will have time for its own consultation and judgment to judge Greenwood’s crimes.” “The player himself resents the club.”
The Sun said: “After being suspended for Manchester United last season, Greenwood used to tell people around him, ‘I’m not going to play in this team again’. He feels United doesn’t support him.”
Greenwood is considering playing for a club other than Manchester United. China is particularly mentioned. The Sun pointed out, “Greenwood is saying to those around him, ‘If you give me good money, I will be happy even if I play in China.’”
The media said, “Greenwood’s extreme views may have changed over the past few months, but he wasn’t happy at all.
