Manchester United forward, Mason Greenwood has been reported to be in a telephone conversation with manager Erik Ten Haag. It was reported that both the manager and the forward spoke for the first since the charges against greenwood was dropped.
Recall that Greenwood, 21, was facing a trial in November over allegations of rape, assault, and controlling behavior, but the Greater Manchester Police announced last week that the Crown Prosecution Service had dropped the charges due to a combination of key witness withdrawals and new evidence that emerged. The CPS stated that there was no longer a realistic chance of securing a conviction. This news must have come as a huge relief for Greenwood, who can now concentrate on his football career without the added burden of a legal case.
It was reported that Manchester United, Erik Ten Haag, recently made his first phone call to Mason Greenwood since taking over last summer. Prior to this call, all communication between the club and player was through a third party, following his arrest in January 2022. Ten Haag expressed concern for Greenwood’s well-being, both physically and mentally, and expressed relief that the charges had been dropped. The manager emphasized that any decision regarding Greenwood’s future with the club will be made by the club and not him
Greenwood is still currently unavailable for selection as the club is conducting an internal investigation into his conduct. There is no estimated timeline for when the investigation will be completed. Head Coach, Ten Hag, declined to comment on the situation last week. However, The Sun reports that the two had a phone call a few days after the charges against England international were dropped.
