Nike Officially Suspend Relationship With Mason Greenwood

Nike have officially suspended their relationship with Mason Greenwood following the Manchester United striker's arrest.

The 20-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault after a woman accused him of assaulting her in images and a video uploaded to Instagram.

United have confirmed Greenwood will not be training or playing for the club 'until further notice', while Nike said they were 'deeply concerned' after the material emerged online in a prior statement.

The sportswear giant said in a new statement released on Monday evening: "We have suspended our relationship with Mason Greenwood. We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation."

Greenwood remains in police custody and additional time to question Greenwood has been granted.

A statement from Greater Manchester Police reads: "Detectives have been granted additional time to speak to a man in his 20s who is being held on suspicion of rape and assault of a woman.

"Inquiries are ongoing and the victim is being offered specialist support."

On Sunday morning, a video, audio recording and photos were posted to the woman's Instagram before her account was deleted later in the day.

Greenwood has not responded to any of the allegations made on social media at the time of writing.

United said the club 'does not condone violence of any kind.'

The England international rose through the ranks of United's academy and has been with them since the age of six.

He's scored six goals in all competitions this season and started their last game, a 1-0 win over West Ham United on January 22.

United removed all official merchandise including Greenwood from their club shop earlier on Monday.

Searching for the player's name online will instead give you a message of, "Sorry, your search for Mason Greenwood did not match any products."

He is also not included in the 'Shop by Player' section of the website.
