Mason Greenwood has now been suspended by Manchester United ‘until further notice’ after being arrested by the Police over allegations of rape and assault.
On Sunday, the player’s girlfriend Harriet Robson uploaded some pictures and audio recordings to her Instagram page in which she was shown with bruises on her body with the caption: ‘To everyone who wants to know what Mason Greenwood actually does to me’.
An audio recording – which has now been deleted along with the photos – also appeared to show a man, who Ms Robson refers to as ‘Mason’, forcing her to have sex.

Greater Manchester Police said it was working to ‘establish the full circumstances’, while the Red devils released a brief statement saying they ‘do not condone violence of any kind’ though would not make another comment until ‘the facts have been established’.
Later on Sunday, United released a second statement this time saying that Greenwood would not be taking part in the club training or matches.
The statement read: ‘Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.’
Greenwood is yet to respond to the allegations and shortly after United’s second statement Greater Manchester Police confirmed that he had been arrested and is currently in custody.
The statement read: ‘Greater Manchester Police were made aware earlier today (Sunday 30 January) of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence.
‘An investigation was launched and following enquiries we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. He remains in custody for questioning. Enquiries are ongoing.’
Manchester Police visited the home of Ms Robson on Sunday after she shared the videos and photos online, with the model giving a statement.
Her father, Alan, told the Daily Mail that she had not wanted the accusations to become public but was ‘hacked’, with Ms Robson ‘devastated’ by the events.
The pair have been dating since attending Mersey School in Greater Manchester together, though they did briefly split in 2020.
