Mason Greenwood's full statement & quotes

Manchester United announced on Monday that forward Mason Greenwood is set to depart from Old Trafford after an investigation surrounding allegations of attempted rape, charges from which he has been exonerated.

Greenwood was initially suspended by the Premier League club in January 2022 following the emergence of accusations against him on social media platforms. In October of the previous year, he faced charges including attempted rape, exerting controlling behaviour, and assault.

Although he was scheduled to go to trial on 27th November 2023, all criminal charges levied against him were dismissed in February.

Below are the quotes and statement from Mason Greenwood:

“Today’s decision has been part of a collaborative process between Manchester United, my family and me. The best decision for us all is for me to continue my football career away from Old Trafford, where my presence will not be a distraction for the club. I thank the club for their support since I joined aged seven. There will always be a part of me which is United.

“I am enormously grateful to my family and all my loved ones for their support, and it is now for me to repay the trust those around me have shown. I intend to be a better footballer, but most importantly a good father, a better person, and to use my talents in a positive way on and off the pitch.

“I did not do the things I was accused of, and in February I was cleared of all charges. However, I fully accept I made mistakes in my relationship.”
