Footage Emerges Of Fan Confronting Mason Greenwood, He Reacted Angrily
| Last updated
Manchester United's Mason Greenwood was confronted by a fan in what appears to be the first public sighting of the player since he was arrested on suspicion of rape.
Greenwood was taken into custody in early February after an 18-year-old woman alleged that she had been assaulted in content posted to Instagram.
He was then further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill but then released on bail shortly after.
According to new reports, Greenwood is to find out whether he is facing charges in a matter of days.
But footage has emerged of the 20-year-old being taunted by a supporter while in public.
The England international, wearing black shorts, a white palms angels t-shirt and a snapback, was visibly irritated after the individual shouted "quarantine" and "sh***y a**e".
In the short clip which has gone viral on Tik Tok and other social media platforms, Greenwood was on his phone but turned around to motion for the man to leave him alone and stop filming.
Greenwood had been spotted sporting a balaclava in his Mercedes but this appears to be his most public sighting since his arrest.
Things had gone relatively quiet in regards to the case but The Sun say police are poised to submit a report to the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) "imminently".
A source told The Sun: "He’s still on bail but things are at an advanced stage. The police and CPS are currently discussing if there is a case or not to bring against him.
"There comes a point where a decision has to be made and things have reached that point."
Greenwood was suspended by United following his arrest and the club recently put a statement out maintaining that his status has not changed despite some fans seeing his name and photo on the website.
"There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” read the statement, as quoted by The Sun.
"We removed his profile from the club app soon after he was removed from the squad in January.
"This was in order to remove Mason from interactive elements of the app, such as team predictions etc.
"However, his profile was never removed from the website as he remains a Manchester United player, albeit not currently part of the squad while the legal process unfolds."
Nike, meanwhile, have ended their sponsorship agreement with the player and it's said he did not receive any compensation for the termination.
He was also removed from the FIFA 22 and eFootball video games, while United are not selling any merchandise involving him.
United have informed fans who purchased his shirt that they can exchange free of charge.
