According to a report by The Athletic, Mason Greenwood has been causing issues behind the scenes at Manchester United. The report claims that the young forward has been known to criticise his teammates, including calling them “s***” to their faces. He has also reportedly referred to Cristiano Ronaldo as “dead” during his time at Real Madrid.
Greenwood’s blunt speaking has not gone unnoticed by United staff, who have had to intervene and correct him. However, they believe that his comments are a result of “youthful delusion”. His behaviour is said to have spread into his school life, with staff members at Ashton on Mersey not remembering him with any affection.
Despite his behaviour, Greenwood is reportedly desperate to continue his career at United. He has been suspended by the club since news of his arrest in January 2020 was confirmed. In February, charges of attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour against him were dropped. United have since stated that they will launch their own internal investigation to determine his future at the club.
Greenwood has been the subject of offers from clubs in Turkey, but United have rejected their proposals amid their investigation. It remains to be seen whether he will ever play for the club again.
The young forward is an expectant father with his partner and is said to be willing to do anything to get back playing for United. However, it is unclear how long the club’s investigation will last and what the outcome will be.
