Manchester United ‘aware’

A spokesperson for the club said while they do not “condone violence of any kind”, further comment will only be made once “the facts have been established”.

This comes after “images and allegations” began circulating on social media which implicated the 20-year-old United academy graduate.

Harriet Robson’s injuries

Greenwood’s girlfriend, Harriet Robson, said she was the victim of abuse at the striker’s hands and shared shocking photos on Instagram detailing her injuries.

With blood streaming from her lips, she said, “To everyone who wants to know what Mason Greenwood actually does to me.”

In one of the videos shared on her Stories, Robson’s face was severely bruised. Other images showed bruises on her arms and thighs.

She also shared a graphic audio file of what appears to be Mason forcing her to have sex with him.

Robson has since deleted the posts from her Instagram feed.

Greenwood and Robson first began dating when they met at Mersey School in Greater Manchester; however, the couple parted ways in 2020.

Twitter users react

Netizens expressed their outrage on Twitter, with one user saying Greenwood’s audio file should serve as a “reminder to everyone that consent exists in relationships as well”.

“You never force or coerce your partners into having sex. No means f*** no”, @camstormf said, while another user added:

“Just woke up to the Greenwood news. So lost for words. No woman deserves to go through that abuse.” The user concluded:

“As a Man Utd fan think I speak for all here when I say Mason Greenwood should have his contract terminated immediately”.
