After Mason Greenwood was detained in January, Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick alluded to the continuing police inquiry as a “human tragedy.”
“It was a human disaster, it’s a personal [disaster]. It’s not good for himself, obviously, and for his family it hasn’t been good but it also hasn’t been good for the club. He was regularly playing at the time.
”The headlines in January brought a great deal of shame to everyone connected to the club — and to a point I don’t think he will can ever return to the team, even in the case that his charges are dropped.
In terms of updates on Greenwood, we are expecting a hearing to be held in June.”
Rangnick also expressed a desire to bring in a new forward in the January transfer market, but the board turned on the opportunity to bolster the team midway through the season.
Julian Alvarez would have made sense, but Manchester City beat us to it.
