After receiving public outcry due to leaked claims, Manchester United is prepared to reverse course on Mason Greenwood’s anticipated return to the squad.
The Red Devils’ efforts paved the way for Greenwood’s return to the first team.
United, though, have reportedly been shaken by the backlash they’ve received from supporters, domestic abuse organizations, and politicians, as reported by The Sun.
Greenwood has been on indefinite suspension after a young woman made charges against him after seeing photos and videos of him online.
The Crown Prosecution Service stated six months ago that the case against the 21-year-old, which included attempted rape and violence, had been dropped.
United’s CEO Richard Arnold reportedly told employees in the first week of August that he planned to confirm Greenwood’s return after the company’s internal probe concluded.
However, the response to the plan to confirm Greenwood’s return was negative, with some club personnel threatening to go on strike.
