The possible resurgence of Mason Greenwood has triggered a wave of dissent among Manchester United supporters, prompting a protest against their own club.
The Athletic recently unveiled a statement issued by a collective of female Manchester United fans. This statement serves as a robust expression of their discontent, specifically directed at the English forward’s anticipated comeback.
The focal point of their demand revolves around upholding a zero-tolerance stance against acts of violence targeting women. Their plea is unequivocal: the club must refrain from reintegrating Mason Greenwood into the squad.

Notably assertive, the statement casts a piercing question on the club’s decision-makers. It scrutinizes whether this pivotal choice will reflect the moral compass of those at the helm, delineating whether they will align with the perpetrators or the aggrieved.
In addition, the group takes aim at the PR machinery that has orchestrated a rosy narrative around Greenwood’s return. Their statement acknowledges the premise of second chances but draws a clear demarcation – aspiring to be a part of the world’s premier club mandates that actions are held against the highest yardstick of conduct.
The statement acknowledges second chances but boldly claims, “Threatening Your Partner With Se*ual Abuse Isn’t a Mistake; it’s targeted abuse”.

Previous accounts highlighted an internal investigation conducted by Manchester United, an extensive inquiry that reached its conclusion last week. The Dutch manager, Erik ten Hag, has played a pivotal role in the discussions that have influenced the club’s decisions concerning Greenwood’s fate.
Following his apprehension in January 2022, the forward has been notably absent from both match-day lineups and collective training sessions. Nonetheless, a glimmer of his dedication surfaced during the preseason, as he actively participated in training in recent months.
