Greenwood, perhaps the most talented young footballer at United, has had more than a year out of the first-team picture and the squad may have mixed feelings about his return – should he do so.

Greenwood is an innocent man by law but United’s statement regarding his future shows there is no guarantee he will be welcomed back, despite being contracted until 2025 (the club has the option of another year) and a multimillion-pound asset.

The Greenwood question is markedly different, though. And it is sure not to be solely Ten Hag’s call as the club considers its values, how the image of an institution should be perceived and commercial imperatives.


On Monday, there was a rumour on social media that suggested Mason Greenwood has been absolved of the rape and assault charges he faces based on the evidence shared by his former partner Harriet Robson.

Greenwood, 21, is out on bail but investigations into Ms. Robson’s allegations are ongoing. And for as long as it continues, Mason remains suspended.

The fact is Harriet’s audio recordings prove she was abused by him.

In a short statement released on his behalf, Greenwood said: “I am relieved that this matter is now over and I would like to thank my family, loved ones and friends for their support.

“There will be no further comment at this time.”

A Manchester United statement read: “Manchester United notes the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service that all charges against Mason Greenwood have been dropped.

“The club will now conduct its own process before determining next steps. We will not make any further comment until that process is complete.”

The most recent development came on February 2, 2023, when the Crown Prosecution Service dropped all charges against him, citing the withdrawal of key witnesses and “new material that came to light.”

Broady, a former Australian Open Boys’ Doubles winner, turned to social media to reflect on the issue and criticized the UK justice system by calling it “inept.”

“Mason Greenwood should never be anywhere near a professional football club ever again. Just goes to show how inept the criminal justice system is in the UK. We’ve all heard the recordings,” Broady tweeted.

A CPS spokesperson said, “We have a duty to keep cases under continuous review. In this case a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light meant there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction. In these circumstances, we are under a duty to stop the case.”

“We have explained our decision to all parties. We would always encourage any potential victims to come forward and report to police and we will prosecute wherever our legal test is met,” the spokesperson added.

From November 2018 to October 2021, Greenwood was accused of committing crimes involving the same woman. He had appeared in Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court in November while being accompanied by family members and wearing a dark suit and hoodie.

Greenwood removed the hoodie when he appeared in the dock to confirm his name and age for the brief five-minute hearing but did not enter a plea. At the time, Jason Pitter KC, the prosecutor, had acknowledged that it needed to be carefully considered before the case could move forward.
