Rachel Riley: I’ll Withdraw Manchester United Support if Mason Greenwood’s Return is Confirmed
The recent statement from Manchester United concerning the future of Mason Greenwood has prompted a response from TV presenter Rachel Riley, who has expressed her stance on the matter.
Riley, known for her association with Premier League coverage, has stated that her allegiance to Manchester United would be challenged if the club continues to retain Mason Greenwood in its ranks.
Manchester United is yet to finalize its decision regarding the future of forward Mason Greenwood, who last featured for the first team in January 2022. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dropped charges of attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behavior, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm in February this year.
In light of recent reports suggesting Chief Executive Richard Arnold’s communication to Old Trafford personnel about Greenwood’s imminent return, the Premier League club released an official statement on Wednesday. Greenwood’s contract with Manchester United extends until 2025.
Rachel Riley’s unwavering support for Manchester United has been widely known. Nonetheless, she has expressed her stance on the Greenwood situation, potentially reconsidering her allegiance to the club if his return is confirmed.
“I won’t be able to support United if Greenwood remains at the club,”Riley posted to her 685,000 Twitter followers. She also shared a number of letters from fans also expressing their concern.
Greenwood has played 129 career games for United, scoring 35 goals. He also won one senior England international cap, back in 2020.
