Man Utd make Mason Greenwood promise in response to fans bombarding club email

Reaction to the VAR decision that cost Wolves a penalty against Man Utd | Football Digest

Manchester United have issued a fresh statement in response to concerned fans bombarding the club’s email over Mason Greenwood’s potential return. Many supporters against the 21-year-old’s potential reintegration made their voices heard on Thursday.

On Wednesday, United announced they were in the closing stages of their “thorough” six-month investigation into Greenwood’s Old Trafford future.

Greenwood hasn’t played or trained since his arrest in January 2022, before he was later charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour.

The No 11 denied the allegations he faced, and the Crown Prosecution Service dropped all charges against him in February of this year, sparking United’s probe.

Simultaneous to United’s update, The Athletic reported that chief executive Richard Arnold had already told club figures of Greenwood’s impending return.

Arnold allegedly had plans in place to announce the decision at the start of August but delayed going public.

In response to Wednesday’s news, #GreenwoodOut was trending on Twitter, and many fans shared the club and Arnold’s emails to protest against Greenwood’s return. United have since responded.

The Red Devils have again denied that a decision had already been made but promised that they are listening to fan concerns and will communicate the final call when Arnold has made it.

It read: “Thank you for taking the time to email Manchester United. We note and understand your strength of feeling on this matter.

“This has been a difficult case for everyone associated with the club, and we recognise the strong opinions it has provoked.

“Since charges were dropped against Mason Greenwood in February, we have conducted our own investigation into the allegations made against him, and we want to assure you that the welfare and perspective of the alleged victim has been central to the club’s inquiries.

“As a club, we are extremely mindful of the views of our supporters, but we also believe that our decision in this case should be based primarily on the findings of our investigation.

“As communicated yesterday, despite media reports, we have not yet reached a final decision. When we do, we will communicate and explain it through club channels.

“We assure you that we are listening carefully to your views and ask for patience as we work through the final stages of this considered process.

“Kind regards, Manchester United Football Club.”

The Sun report Greenwood could return to Carrington as early as next week. However, the recent spike in backlash may extend United’s deliberation further.
