Mason Greenwood coming back to Man Utd will make Old Trafford 'toxic' & 'full of booing', supporters' club founder says | The Sun

MASON Greenwood coming back to Manchester United will make Old Trafford "toxic" and "full of booing", says supporters' club founder.

The current-suspended striker, 21, hasn't kicked a ball for the Premier League giants since he was arrested back in January 2022.

He was charged with with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour before the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dropped the case in February this year.

And club bosses are now expected to make a decision imminently about his future in the squad.

Greenwood hasn't made an appearance Man Utd since but chief exec Richard Arnold is expected to announce his rumoured comeback after the Lionesses World Cup final against Spain on Sunday.

But last night Natalie Burrell, founder of Manchester United's Women's Supporters' Club, said the footballer should not make a return – admitting it would "destroy" the club.

Man Utd WILL welcome Mason Greenwood back into the fold next week

Speaking to Newsnight, she said: "I've been going to this club since I was a little girl. It's such an important part of my life.

"It's a community, it's everything, it's where I get a lot of my social life, a lot of my friends.

"It would just destroy that. It's destroying it now there's massive divides and protests.

"It's going to make it toxic if he does run out at Old Trafford, people are going to be booing him.

"Some might be supporting him and saying we should carry on supporting, but you can't support someone like that.

"I think it's all because they've not got a lot of striking options and this is an easy way to get someone in who's talented."

Natalie previously said she doesn't think Greenwood should play for the club ever again.

She added: "I just don’t want to see him training.

"I don’t want to see him in a [United] kit. I don’t want to see him ever coming out at Old Trafford again."

It comes after Countdown co-host Rachel Riley, 37, threatened to pull her support for Man Utd over the Greenwood scandal.

The maths whizz and Red Devils fan said she is considering ditching the club if Greenwood is allowed on the pitch again.

Greenwood could have his contract terminated, be put back into the first team, loaned out or sold.

Manager Erik ten Hag and the majority of the first team have suggested they were open to the idea of bringing the Greenwood back.
