Mason Greenwood changes Instagram bio after having charges dropped

Mason Greenwood, a professional footballer for Manchester United, has made changes to his Instagram bio after having all charges against him dropped. 

The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed last week that the 21-year- old’s charges of attempted rape, assault, and coercive control had been dropped more than a year after his arrest.

Greenwood, who remains suspended by Manchester United, issued a statement in response to the news but has not commented further since.

Since then, he has modified his Instagram profile by removing more than 100 posts, leaving only nine, removing his display image, and altering his bio.

Following the changes, Greenwood’s bio on the platform now reads: “@manchesterunited @nikefootball.” However, he has been dropped from his Nike sponsorship.

After Greenwood’s bio change came to light, a spokesperson for the company told The Sun: “Mason Greenwood is no longer a Nike athlete.”

Greenwood will also remain absent from the FIFA video game series despite the charges against him being dropped, as EA Sports announced he would not be reinstated on their most recent game.

United will conduct their own investigation before deciding what to do with Greenwood, who has been suspended since his arrest.

The players at Old Trafford have reportedly made their position clear, fearing that Greenwood’s return would be a distraction during the season.

A source told The Sun: “The players are open to him returning to the team but the scrutiny could be massively distracting. The dressing room is the happiest it has been for ages and no one wants to rock the boat.”

Prior to changing his Instagram account, Greenwood had issued a statement in response to last week’s dismissal of his charges.

The statement read: “I am relieved that this matter is now over and I would like to thank my family, loved ones and friends for their support. There will be no further comment at this time.”
