Mason Greenwood of Manchester United was remanded on Monday after making an appearance at Manchester Magistrates’ Court for alleged flagrant breach of his bail conditions, according to reports. Greenwood’s second arrest was due to the player breaching the terms & conditions of his bail, officials say. Greenwood’s next court date has been scheduled for November 21st. The player will reportedly be brought before the Manchester Crown Court.

The Manchester United forward was originally arrested back in January 2022 after pictures, video and audio were posted to social media alleging Greenwood assaulted & threatened to kill a woman. The player was later charged with attempted rape of a woman, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault.

Shortly after that, Manchester United suspended the young player as part of its disciplinary action. A team spokesperson met with media and emphasized that such alleged behaviors are not what the team condones under any circumstances.

“Manchester United reiterates its strong condemnation of violence of any kind. As previously communicated, Mason Greenwood will not train with, or play for, the club until further notice.”

Multiple sponsors & brands, such as Nike, quickly severed all ties and connections with Greenwood. He was once considered one of the best young players in the game. In addition, EA Sports has reportedly removed Greenwood from its “FIFA 22” video game by making him unavailable in its digital packs and its draft in Ultimate Team mode.

Individual merchandise with Greenwood’s name was removed from the team’s store, courtesy of the team’s shirt sponsor TeamViewer. Cadbury has reportedly suspended all of its advertisements of Greenwood pending the outcome of the player’s legal case, but has openly remained steadfast in its business relationship with Manchester United as an organization.

“Cadbury does not condone violence in any form,” the company said. “Our partnership is with the cub itself and not the individual players. However, while these allegations are being investigated, any marketing or products we create with Manchester United will not feature this player. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
