The club officially declared that Greenwood would no longer represent them, a decision revealed in a recent statement.
This decision was awaited as pressure mounted on United, especially after The Athletic hinted the club might be considering a different approach. TV presenter Rachel Riley was among those who voiced concerns over the club’s pending decision.
She had publicly announced, via Twitter, her intention to cease supporting Manchester United if they chose to reintegrate Greenwood into the team.
Her sentiments resonated with another female supporter she retweeted, who shared similar views about supporting the club if Greenwood remained a part.
