Man Utd drop all Mason Greenwood merchandise from the club’s online store

Manchester United have dropped all Mason Greenwood merchandise from the club’s online store following his arrest on suspicion of rape and sexual assault.

The 20-year-old was detained on Sunday after allegations were made that a woman had suffered serious injuries at the hands of the England international.

Greater Manchester Police said it had been made aware of “online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence”.

The force said: “An investigation was launched and following inquiries we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault.

“He remains in custody for questioning. Inquiries are ongoing.”

Police officers were pictured visiting Greenwood’s Cheshire home on Sunday afternoon and he remained in custody on Monday.

A Manchester United club statement added: “We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established.

“Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.”

United later confirmed that Greenwood will not be available for selection or allowed to train until further notice.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust posted on Twitter: “The club has now confirmed that Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.

“MUST fully support the decision of the club in this regard.”

Now the Red Devils have seen fit to make all club kit and other merchandise bearing Greenwood’s name unavailable to purchase from its online store.

While his name still appears in the ‘Shop by Player’ section, along with other senior male and female stars, clicking on it to attempt to purchase a Greenwood shirt now diverts to the homepage.

Searching for his name in the toolbar similarly diverts to a page that declares: “Sorry, your search for Mason Greenwood did not match any products.”

Nike, who sponsor Greenwood, has said it is “deeply concerned” by the allegations made against Greenwood, and said it was “continuing to monitor the situation”.
