Mason Greenwood will not return to training with the Manchester United team until next season.
This is stated in The MailOnline report, which claims that the club has informed the player that its internal investigation will continue for some time.
Greenwood expressed his desire to return to training as soon as possible and held extensive talks with club officials about this.
He has been suspended from office since January 2022 on charges of attempted rape, assault and causing bodily harm.
Although these charges were dropped, a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service acknowledged that the action was taken due to “a combination of the recall of key witnesses and the emergence of new material, meaning that there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.”
Make no mistake, the situation with Greenwood is still a difficult problem for many, and a number of people at the club do not want him to return.
A number of players of the men’s team are concerned about an alarming sound that appeared on the network last year.
And this feeling extends to the fans of Manchester United. Natalie Burrell, founder of the Manchester United Women’s Supporters Club, shares this opinion, saying: “I don’t think he should play for Manchester United again.
And even among those who really see a way back for the 20-year-old, there is a real sense of indecision, perhaps best expressed by United fan Margaret Regan, who, when asked by The Athletic how she would feel about Mason Greenwood returning to play for the club, said:
“I wouldn’t be 100 percent happy. I think I would choke on it, just for the sake of the club. But I wouldn’t be happy as a woman.”
Now that Greenwood is out of the game until at least next season, many at Old Trafford are likely to feel relieved.
Erik ten Hag could not be distracted, but perhaps more appropriately, it suggests that the club is seriously considering parting with the player for good.
