Mason Greenwood: Manchester United striker is denied bail

Following an unsuccessful attempt at securing bail, Mason Greenwood has reportedly been remanded in custody with charges of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault.

The Manchester United player was first held after a voice recording emerged of an argument between a man and a woman.

The man appears to want sexual intercourse, while the woman does not. Despite her protestations, the man insists on proceeding with the act.

In addition, an 18-year-old woman posted several images online showing injuries that she claims Greenwood inflicted.

Consequently, Greenwood has not played for his club during the course of the investigation. Since his arrest 10 months ago, he has been suspended from playing or training for Manchester United.

Nike also terminated its sponsorship deal with Greenwood, and Electronic Arts confirmed his removal from active squads on its FIFA 22 game.

He had previously been out on bail, but the authorities reportedly arrested him in the Trafford area on October 15.

During the hearing at Manchester Magistrates Court, Greenwood arrived in a grey hooded Nike sweatshirt to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

However, he did not speak aside from this.

The attempted rape allegedly occurred in October 2021.

The controlling and coercive behaviour allegation reportedly took place between November 2018 and October 2022.

Greenwood also received an accusation of making threatening and derogatory comments. In addition, he supposedly monitored the women’s social media accounts.

The assault charge occasioning actual bodily harm allegedly occurred in December 2021.

After the sportsman’s appearance in court, his defence team apparently informed the press that they would attempt another bail application.
