His son’s image rights company had its assets rise by £341,000 to almost £1m when Manchester United banned him, and the court charged him with rape and assault resulting in bodily harm to his ex-girlfriend Harriet Robson.

  1. Mason is a young man and appears to be from a stable family with good values. He should be afforded the opportunity to recover from the indiscretions of his youth, in keeping with the decision of the court.

  2. This young lad is still a valuable asset to our team .Being here as a woman supporter in Africa where democracy is mostly flaunted, dropping Greenwood was the most shocking act I expected to see after the real courts of democracy had ruled unless if British people are saying they no longer have confidence in their courts like us here. It’s sad and embarrassing at the same time.
