 Manchester United | Latest updates on Mason Greenwood.


After Mason Greenwood was detained in January, Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick alluded to the continuing police inquiry as a “human tragedy.”

Before being detained on charges of rape and assault on a young lady, the academy graduate was a regular in the team. He was later jailed on charges of sexual assault and making death threats.

Greenwood was immediately suspended from all club activities by United. Since the charges were made public, he hasn’t played or trained with the squad.

Rangnick addressed the consequences to reporters on Friday afternoon, both to Greenwood as a man and to the team.

Rangnick said (via The Mirror): “The issue around Mason was a disaster for everybody.

“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.
