Manchester United have had some major concerns over the behaviour of Mason Greenwood.
That’s according to a recent report from the Daily Mail, who claims members of the Red Devils’ backroom staff have been worried about the troubled striker for several months.
It has been suggested that the attacker has struggled to remain grounded after shooting to stardom, amplified by his whopping £75,000-per week contract.
This report comes after it was recently confirmed that Greenwood, 20, had been arrested on suspicion of assault and rape (BBC News) following shocking allegations made online on Sunday by former partner Harriet Robson.
The 20-year-old will now remain embroiled in a serious investigation and will not feature for United for the foreseeable future – if again, at all (Sky Sports).
It is perhaps no surprise to see United and its senior hierarchy work overtime to distance themselves from the disgraced footballer.
Although Greenwood’s future remains up in the air until more facts are established, there is no denying that his image is tainted and when it comes to public relations – United are notoriously conscious of their commercial reputation.
Last weekend’s eye-opening news would have undoubtedly shocked the club, but when there were supposed worries for such long a time, perhaps there were fewer surprises.
