Mason Greenwood, a Manchester United footballer, has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons after his girlfriend Harriet Robson accused him of sexual assault and physical violence. The 20-year-old is a key member of Manchester United’s current squad and is widely regarded as one of the club’s future superstars.
● Shocking news about Mason Greenwood
After being accused of assaulting his girlfriend, the young English striker has found himself in hot water. Robson’s bruises were photographed and posted to her official Instagram account. She also shared a video of blood trickling from her wounded lips on her Instagram account.
The images have gone viral on social media, with supporters uniting to criticise the Manchester United player. Robson closed her Instagram account after exposing Greenwood, but the photos have gone viral.
Robson also published a purported Greenwood audio recording in which the Manchester United footballer can be heard pushing her to have sex with him. The shocking charges levelled against Greenwood have sent shockwaves throughout the football community.
“We are aware of photographs and claims circulating on social media,” United said in a statement in response to the posts. “We won’t say anything else until the facts are known. The violence of any type is never tolerated at Manchester United.”
Greater Manchester Police sent a statement to Mirror Football that did not confirm any names but stated that they were investigating the situation.
The following was included in the statement: “Images and videos circulating on social media have been reported to the Greater Manchester Police. The exact circumstances are still being investigated.”
“We are very concerned by the distressing claims and will continue to closely watch the situation,” Nike, which sponsors the athlete, said in a statement to The Athletic.
The couple had been together since high school when they met at Mersey School in Greater Manchester, but they had broken up in 2020, before Greenwood’s England catastrophe.
Despite tight quarantine orders, the striker brought two Icelandic models into the team hotel with Phil Foden on his first call-up to the national squad.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Greater Manchester Police are investigating the allegations in order to get to the bottom of the situation.
The police department claims to be “aware of photographs and videos circulating on social media” involving the 20-year-old striker.
Enquiries have been initiated to learn more about the situation.
“Greater Manchester Police is aware of photographs and videos circulating on social media,” a representative for the force said in a statement.
Given that the police investigation is still underway, it’s more likely that they’ll remain silent on the matter.
Greenwood has 129 Manchester United first-team matches to his name, with his only England cap coming in September 2020.
After a Covid breach, while the international team was in Iceland, he has been dropped off of every England squad since September.
Gareth Southgate has been questioned several times about why Greenwood has not received more England call-ups, and the England manager has defended his choice on several occasions.
