Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has been accused of domestic violence by his girlfriend Harriet Robson.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, a story was put out on Harriet’s Instagram account showing the bruises on her body with a caption stating: “To everyone who wants to know what Mason Greenwood actually does to me”.
The series of disturbing images clearly indicates a physical attack. She later posted an audio clip in which Greenwood was being abusive and threatening her.
The news has shocked United fans waking up this morning, as they fear what’s in store for the 20 year old.
United have released a statement this morning saying ‘We are aware of images and allegations circulating on social media. We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established. Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.’
Reports on Twitter claim that the Greater Manchester Police have been informed, but this has not as yet been confirmed.
Of course, one should not come to a conclusion before hearing both sides of the story, so United fans will be hoping for a prompt response from Greenwood.
There may also be other explanations, for example Ms Robson’s account could have been hacked and the photos and audio faked.
However, the fact that the story has not been taken down is an ominous sign that she did post it herself.
