Manchester United have issued a brief statement after charges of attempted rape, assault and coercive control against Mason Greenwood were dropped on Thursday. The 21-year-old has been out of competitive action for the duration of the saga, last appearing for the Red Devils in January last year.

Greenwood was arrested just over a year ago and he faced one count of controlling and coercive behaviour, one count of attempted rape and one count of occasioning actual bodily harm. All three charges related to the same woman but they were dropped following the ‘withdrawal of a key witness’. 

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) claimed that the case had to be stopped due to the witness’ withdrawal and ‘new material’ that came to light, adding: “[There is] no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.”

Hours later, United released a statement of their own, which read: “Manchester United notes the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service that all charges against Mason Greenwood have been dropped. The club will now conduct its own process before determining next steps.”
