Mason Greenwood has been picked for Manchester United’s Premier League U21 team.
Mason Greenwood has not played for Manchester United since his arrest by Greater Manchester Police on January 22…
Mason Greenwood has been named to Manchester United’s Premier League U21 squad, despite the fact that the Red Devils have suspended him until further notice. The England international has not played for his club since January 22, when Ralf Rangnick’s side defeated West Ham 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to Marcus Rashford’s 93rd-minute winner.
Greater Manchester Police detained the forward on suspicion of rape and assault on Sunday, January 30.
United promptly suspended their highly-rated teenage talent, claiming that he will be unable to train or play for the club ‘until further notice.’
Greenwood’s bail was extended following a court hearing on June 24, according to Greater Manchester Police.
He has yet to play for Manchester United, who have kept faith in the 20-year-old striker.
Despite being left out of Erik ten Hag’s 25-man squad, Greenwood has now been nominated to Manchester United’s official Premier League roster for the 2022/23 season.
Because the athlete is still under the age of 21, he has been named to the club’s U21 squad, which features a long line of academy stars.
Greenwood is not expected to play for the team in any capacity right now.
United has not commented on the topic since their original statement in January, in which they stated their player was suspended indefinitely.
“We will not make any additional remark until the facts are determined,” it said.
“Manchester United does not support any form of violence.”
Even if Greenwood is finally allowed to return to play pending the outcome of the police inquiry, the forward may have his work cut out for him trying to get back into this new-look United team.
Ten Hag paid a lot of money to bring in former Ajax winger Antony, and the Brazilian took little time settling in, scoring on his debut against Arsenal in a 3-1 triumph.
Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford are both in fine form and are expected to be named back to Gareth Southgate’s England squad after a solid start to the season.
