Nike have decided to terminate their deal with Mason Greenwood after the Manchester United forward was arrested and released on bail.
Greenwood, 20, was under police custody on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman. He was then arrested further on charges of sexual assault and making threats to kill.
On Wednesday, he was released on bail before Ralf Rangnick broke his silence over the situation. The interim manager didn’t hide away from the fact that his players were talking about it all week.
Nike initially decided to suspend their relationship with Greenwood when the news first emerged on social media.
But now, after further consideration, Nike has confirmed they will no longer sponsor Greenwood with a fresh statement released on Monday.
“Mason Greenwood is no longer a Nike athlete,” they told The Athletic.
Greenwood has also been removed by the FIFA 22 computer game.
Moreover, United will exchange your Greenwood 11 shirt free of cost, which is a pretty good move from the club.
