Footballer Mason Greenwood remanded in custody after court appearance


Footballer Mason Greenwood has been remanded in custody after appearing in court today charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault. The Manchester United forward faces three counts relating to the same woman.

Greenwood, 21, of Bowdon, will spend more than a month on remand after a district judge at Manchester Magistrates’ Court elected not to grant him bail.

He was wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey jogging bottoms, while members of his family sat in the public gallery.

The professional footballer was flanked by two dock officers as he entered the court.

Greenwood confirmed his name, date of birth and address at the beginning of the hearing, before the court heard the details of the charges against him.

Proceedings were then adjourned until later on Monday morning by District Judge Mark Hadfield, when a decision on his bail arrangements was decided.

Following his arrest, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said it had authorised Greater Manchester Police (GMP) to charge Greenwood.
