In a shocking revelation, Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, 20, was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.
Manchester United took no time in issuing a statement, saying that Greenwood will not play or train during the period the police and the club work to establish the full circumstances around the images and an audio file currently circulating on social media since Sunday.
A Greater Manchester Police statement said: “Greater Manchester Police were made aware earlier today (Sunday 30 January) of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence. An investigation was launched and following enquiries we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. He remains in custody for questioning. Enquiries are ongoing.”
A statement issued by United read: “Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.”
The club also said they would launch an investigation before announcing Greenwood’s suspension. The statement said: “We are aware of images and allegations circulating on social media.
“We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established. Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.”
The statement from the Premier League club was issued in response to allegations being posted within images and audio that are no longer visible on a woman’s Instagram account. However, the audio clip is now available on YouTube and other platforms.
