Mason Greenwood still suspended despite appearing on list of eligible U21 players on Manchester United Premier League squad list

    Mason Greenwood is still suspended by Manchester United despite the forward being named on an official squad list for the 2022/23 season.

    United confirmed their finalised 25-man Premier League squad on their club website on Wednesday. Although the 20-year-old academy graduate was not part of the 25, his name appears among the Under-21 players eligible for the first team this season.

    That led to speculation over whether Greenwood could be closing in on a return to action.

    But United maintain that there has been no change in the England international’s circumstances and he remains suspended by the club.

    As an employee of the club, he is automatically included on their U21 squad list as an option.

    Greenwood was arrested earlier this year on suspicion of rape and assault then further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and making threats to kill.

    Greenwood’s bail was due to expire in April but was extended after Greater Manchester Police (GMP) applied to the courts.

    It was further extended after a hearing in June.

    Greenwood’s last appearance for United came in January, against West Ham. He has scored 22 goals in 83 Premier League games for the side.

    He has been omitted from United’s Europa League squad this season and supporters have been blocked from buying shirts with his name and No 11 on the back.

    Sports manufacturer Nike has ended its sponsorship deal with the footballer and Electronic Arts (EA) has removed him from active squads on the FIFA 22 computer game.
