According to Mirror, it was thought earlier that the determination of Mason Greenwood’s future at Manchester United will rely on the outcomes of the club’s inquiry, rather than being influenced by the viewpoints of the women’s team.
United had wanted to make a decision before their Premier League opener against Wolves but that timeline has now changed. It had emerged last week that as part of their investigation, the board would also consult players from the club’s women’s team amid protests.
Controversy Surrounding Greenwood’s Arrest
In January 2022, Mason Greenwood’s final game for Manchester United was during their 1-0 Premier League triumph over West Ham at Old Trafford, in which he was part of the starting lineup. However, following his arrest, the 21-year-old forward was placed on suspension by the club.
Although the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control against him in February, Manchester United’s leadership initiated an internal inquiry. Following the new season, the club’s board has to now conclude the investigation and reach a resolution soon.
Will He Return To Action At Manchester United?
Mason Greenwood exhibits a distinctive attribute in his precision when it comes to finishing. His innate ability to score is complemented by an extraordinary composure when facing the goal. On the field, Greenwood’s level of maturity goes beyond his age, evident in his capability to execute forceful long-range shots, composed conversions in one-on-one scenarios, and delicate touches that locate the corners of the goal.
While Erik ten Hag holds an appreciation for the Academy Graduate, the process of reintegrating him into the team remains in a state of delay. Numerous fans have expressed their dissent online, and their protest was even visible during the Premier League kickoff against Wolves, still some feel that he should be brought back at Old Trafford. The resolution of the internal investigation is eagerly anticipated to shed light on his forthcoming path. Nonetheless, if given the chance to make a comeback and rejuvenate his career, it would signify a noteworthy achievement for the academy graduate.
