Man United say Mason Greenwood’s status ‘unchanged’ and social media speculation over reinstatement is not true

Man United have clarified that there has been no change to Mason Greenwood’s status at the club.

The 21-year-old was trending on social media after some fans pointed out that his profile was still visible on the club’s website, leading to some speculation that he may be reinstated.

Greenwood was suspended from playing or training by United following the forward’s arrest in January by police in connection with the alleged rape and assault of a young woman.

He was later released on bail and a statement from the club at the time said he would be unavailable for the club until further notice.

United have responded to the claims on social media saying they are false.

“There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” the club said.

“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.”
