Mason Greenwood, a forward for Manchester United, is now free to continue a soccer career that appeared to be on track to make him one of the game’s biggest players a year after his arrest.
But we don’t know where he goes from here.
The Crown Prosecution Service last week dismissed the attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault allegations against the 21-year-old Greenwood, who previously represented England at the international level.
Although he will probably be anxious to start playing again after being sidelined for a year, United believes he will need to hold off a little longer.
United declared on Thursday that it would “perform its own process before deciding the next actions.”
The endeavor has no deadline, and Greenwood is not anticipated to resume training or be given consideration for selection until it is finished.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, remarked on Friday, “I can’t say anything about that.” I refer to the club’s statement and am unable to contribute anything at this time.
With billions of supporters and lucrative sponsorship deals worth hundreds of millions of dollars, United is one of the most well-known soccer clubs in the world. Greenwood’s image and commercial appeal are likely to be taken into account when deciding how to proceed, in addition to soccer.
