Mason Greenwood criminal charges dropped 1 year after arrest

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has had the attempted rape and assault charges against him dropped. This was confirmed by the Crown Prosecution Service in a statement, discontinuing legal action against the 21-year-old. 

Greenwood was arrested in January 2022 after charges emerged in October. The charges pressed against him also included controlling coercive behaviour, which were from the same complainant. 

Mason Greenwood has charges against him dropped a year after arrest 

“Criminal proceedings against a 21-year-old man in connection with an investigation opened in January 2022 have, today, been discontinued by the CPS,” the official statement from the Prosecution Service read. 

And in response, Manchester United have also issued a statement saying that they will conduct their own investigation before any other comment has been made.

“Manchester United notes the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service that all charges against Mason Greenwood have been dropped,” it read. 

“The club will now conduct its own process before determining next steps. We will not make any further comment until that process is complete.”

There has been no timescale placed on the internal investigations that will be carried out. However, they are unlikely to take too long. United have refrained from engaging with the matter due to the criminal investigation that was going on. And now that it has been discontinued, they will conduct their own assessment of the matter to determine the circumstances around his arrest.

Whether or not we will ever see Greenwood in a Manchester United shirt again is difficult to say. The trade-off is whether United would be open to taking a risk on their PR to field someone with criminal charges against them. The player’s career has been on hold ever since the matter, as he has not been allowed to play or train with the first team.
