Female fans of Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL) are protesting. They are protesting against the reinstatement of a player who has been accused of sexual misconduct.
The player in question is Mason Greenwood. The 21-year-old striker was accused of sexual assault and later found not guilty of a sex offense after the charges were dropped.
Despite his acquittal, United are cautious about reinstating Greenwood. The moral question remains. It’s not an easy sell, and it’s hard to let go of a talented player. Greenwood is contracted to United until 2025.
United have been mulling it over, but have yet to come to a conclusion. It’s a matter of keeping him or sending him out on loan to another team. The Red Devils hope to make a decision on Greenwood’s future before the EPL kicks off. Local media are weighing in on a return to United. In particular, head coach Eric ten Hagh is said to want Greenwood back.
As United’s decision time approaches, United fans have taken to the streets in protest. “As United prepare for their opening game of the season, United fans have taken to the streets to protest against Greenwood’s reinstatement,” The Sun reported.
The protesting fans held signs that read, “Women fans demand. Stop violence against women. No to Greenwood’s reinstatement,” they protested with placards that read.
“It’s time for the club to make the right decision. The club must set a high standard and if a player doesn’t meet it, they must leave. This decision will mark an 토토사이트 important turning point for the club.”
“It’s a test of whether the club will side with commercialism and money or the fans. The female fans don’t want Greenwood back. His return is a slap in the face to the fans. It would be an attack on all United fans,” he said, sending a strong message.
