Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood has come under fire for abusing his girlfriend after picture, video and audio evidence of the attacks were published to her social media page.

Harriet Robson and Mason Greenwood have been seeing each other since the United front man’s school days but trouble has attacked their paradise in the form of domestic violence meted out by Greenwood.

Robson posted a series of Instagram posts that she claims are injuries she suffered from Greenwood physically abusing her. She also posted an audio clip which is believed to be of the 20-year-old English forward forcefully demanding sex from her to further make matters worse.

In the posts, Robson, who is a social media influencer, can be seen bleeding badly from her lip and is bearing very prominent bruises on her thighs, body and arms.

She captioned the series of posts: “To everyone who wants to know what Mason Greenwood actually does to me.”

The posts have since been deleted from Harriet’s Instagram account but have been circulated on several blogs, news platforms and social media accounts.

Manchester United release a statement on Greenwood

Greenwood has been touted as Manchester United’s future, drawing comparisons to Robin Van Persie for his finishing ability and a young Cristiano Ronaldo for his driving runs and shot accuracy.

He has also been talked up by club legend Sir Alex Ferguson, who regards him as one of the best young players in the world. Ferguson said: “He’s got the coolness and the coldness of a great striker.

“He never panics, his shots are always low, he’s always inside the posts. He’s shown great qualities.”

Greenwood is one of United’s top scorers this season, scoring six goals in 24 appearances for the club, and is a key member of the team. He has been a valuable member of the squad since he broke into the first team in 2019, but has had several disciplinary issues trail him in the club.

Those disciplinary issues also followed him to the national team on his debut, when, after playing just once, Greenwood and Foden brought women into the national team camp. As a result, he has been excluded from the side since then in order to allow him to mature into a more disciplined player.

Calls to United to take Greenwood off their books have intensified following the latest debacle, and the Red Devils have released a statement to that effect.

The statement reads: “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.”

Greater Manchester Police also issued a statement on the issue, per Mirror Football which read: “Greater Manchester Police is aware of images and videos circulating on social media. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.”
