Manchester United fans are planning to protest the potential reintegration of Mason Greenwood into Erik ten Hag’s squad this coming season.
Mason Greenwood has been suspended by Manchester United since January 2022 after allegations of violence and domestic abuse surfaced on social media.
Although his case was eventually dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service, United started their own internal investigation – with the outcome expected to be that he will not his have contract terminated.
This decision has caused much division among the club’s fans, with The Athletic reporting that a group of fans are set to protest against his potential return ahead of the Premier League fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday evening.
“Female Fans Demand No Greenwood Return – End Violence Against Women,” is the sign (see picture above). It will be on display to the right of the Holy Trinity statue on the forecourt between 18:30-19:30 BST, ahead of kick off.
“It’s time for the club to stand up and make the right decision,” one of the organisers anonymously told The Athletic. “It’s time to say, ‘We have high standards at United about how we expect players to conduct themselves and, if you do not meet those standards, you need to be moved out.’
“This is a tipping point for the club. Are they going to side with commercialism and trophies and money? Or are they going to take the side of match-going fans and the club being a social and community institution that we can be proud of, and proud to have as part of our identity?”
It should be noted that the organiser only agreed to speak to The Athletic on condition of anonymity due to fears of being targeted by Greenwood’s supporters.
The supporters are planning to protest across a series of Premier League fixtures in order to convey their point and have released a statement on social media platform X to explain why Greenwood should not be allowed back into the team, which can be read below.
They have asked for support from a large number of people who will protest the Glazer’s ownership of the club ahead of the fixture, gathering at the Holy Trinity statue outside Old Trafford before the fixture on Monday evening.
United are expected to release a statement confirming the future of Mason Greenwood soon, with the latest reports suggesting that this may come before the Old Trafford tie against Wolves – although the club continue to stay silent on the matter.
