Manchester United (Man United) striker Mason Greenwood (22), who was charged with attempted rape and assault, will not appear in court. Reuters reported on the 3rd (Korean time) that “police and prosecutors have withdrawn all charges against Greenwood.”
Greenwood’s ex-girlfriend claimed to have been assaulted and forced to have unwanted sex with Greenwood in January of last year, and posted related videos and pictures of bruises on social media (SNS). The police immediately launched an investigation, and Greenwood was charged with attempted rape and assault nine months later in October.
However, his case came to an end when prosecutors decided to drop Greenwood’s prosecution. A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office explained the reason to Reuters, saying, “Key witnesses either did not attend the trial or withdrew their testimony, and it is difficult to come up with a conviction realistically by combining newly revealed information.” 메이저놀이터
Greenwood made his first-team debut for Manchester United in 2019 after joining the Manchester United youth team at the age of 7 and has grown into an up-and-coming player. In total, he scored 35 goals and 12 assists in 129 appearances, and in February 2021 he extended his contract until 2025. However, his career took a toll when he was embroiled in a scandal, with his sponsorship from Nike being cut off and his official website profile deleted.
United have ruled out Greenwood from training and matches after the allegations came to light. Greenwood’s last business trip was on January 22 last year. Upon hearing the news of the withdrawal of the charges, Manchester United said: “The club will conduct its own process to determine next steps. Until this process is completed, we will not be making any further statements.”
Greenwood issued a statement saying, “I am relieved that the matter has been resolved. I would like to thank my family and loved ones for their support. I will not comment further on this matter at this time.”
