Mason Greenwood granted bail with next court date set for November 21

Mason Greenwood, a Manchester United and England footballer, was granted bail on Wednesday morning and will now be released from custody.

The 21-year-old is accused of rape, controlling and coercive behavior, and assault.

On Monday, the Manchester United academy product appeared in Manchester Magistrates’ Court and was remanded in custody.

On Wednesday, a bail application was heard in private at Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court.

Following the hearing, a court spokesman stated that bail had been granted, with the conditions that no contact with witnesses, including the complainant, be made and that the defendant reside at an address on Bow Green Road in Bowdon.

Greenwood did not show up for the brief hearing.

He is scheduled to return to court on November 21.

The three charges all pertain to the same woman.

The player was arrested for the first time in January on allegations involving a young woman after images and videos were posted online.

He had been on bail since, but was arrested on Saturday in the Trafford area for an alleged breach of conditions.

The controlling and coercive behavior occurred between November 2018 and October of this year, during which time he is accused of making threatening and derogatory comments to the complainant, as well as accessing and monitoring her social media accounts.

The charge of assault resulting in actual bodily harm was filed in December 2021.

The forward, who has made one appearance for England, was suspended from playing or training with the Old Trafford club within hours of the allegations surfacing online at the start of the year.

Greenwood’s sponsorship deal with Nike was suspended and later terminated, while Electronic Arts confirmed his removal from active squads in its Fifa 22 game.
