Manchester United Release Statement On Mason Greenwood After Fans Spot His Profile On The Club's Website

Manchester United have released a statement confirming that Mason Greenwood’s status at the club has not changed.

Greenwood was suspended by United in January after he was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.

The 20-year-old was later further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill.

He was subsequently released on bail but remained suspended from playing and training with United in the wake of the allegations.

Some United fans on social media recently pointed out that Greenwood remains listed as part of the first-team squad on the club’s website, leading some to speculate whether he could be reinstated.

However, United have now released a statement on the matter, confirming Greenwood remains unavailable for selection.

"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."

United removed Greenwood’s merchandise from club shops in the wake of the allegations, while Nike ended their sponsorship deal with the England international.

Greenwood was also removed from FIFA 22 and Konami's eFootball, while Football Manager 2022 has also confirmed he will not feature after their recent winter update.

Sports Interactive confirmed in a statement: "Any player or official serving an indefinite suspension from football, for whatever reason, has been removed from Football Manager in the latest update.

"If and when that suspension is lifted, the player or official will be reinstated at the next scheduled opportunity."
