Following the statement made by the Crown Prosecution Service on Thursday about Masson Greenwood, the club’s head coach Erik ten Hag has come out to say what he thinks and how he feels about the whole matter. The court dropped all the charges against the 21-year-old after the key witnesses withdrew their involvement.
Erik ten Hag Reserves his Comment on Greenwood’s Possible Return to Training
Manchester United is to “conduct its process” before deciding what to do next, with Greenwood still suspended by the club. When the head coach was asked about it, he said: ”We have always to focus on the game, no matter what.”
He was arrested in January 2022 amid allegations surrounding images and videos.
He was later charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
Within hours of the allegations surfacing at the beginning of 2022, the forward, who has made one appearance for England, was suspended from playing or training with the Old Trafford club. Asked whether he had anything to say on Greenwood, Ten Hag said: “No. Nothing. I can’t add anything, I refer to the statement of the club.”
On whether he has spoken to the England striker and whether he was part of the club process, the Dutchman added: “As I said, at this moment, I can’t give a comment about the process. He said: “I can’t say anything about it, I refer to the statement of the club and, at this moment, I can’t add anything.”
