Man Utd Stars 'Shaken' By Greenwood Drama

Manchester United personnel are still reeling from the news regarding Mason Greenwood following his arrest on Sunday, pondering the potential short- and long-term ramifications for both club and player.

Greenwood Removed From FIFA Amid Allegations

A club the size of Manchester United perpetually deals with matters in the spotlight, but never have they had to confront an issue as disturbing this.

Players and staff at Old Trafford are said to be "shocked and appalled" by the footage that surfaced on Instagram on Sunday.

It was reported earlier in the week that many of the 20-year-old's teammates have unfollowed him on social media following the recent allegations made against him. 

A source has told the Daily Mail "everyone is shaken up" at the Theatre of Dreams, adding that "this is very different than the normal things they deal with".

Interim coach Ralf Rangnick and director of football John Murtough are said to have discussed the possible implications of having a player at the club who is alleged to have committed crimes this egregious.

The Red Devils were rapid in suspending the Englishman from all first-team activities until further notice, while Greenwood's boot sponsors Nike and club sponsors Cadbury and DHL have all condemned his alleged actions.

United will need to prepare for their fourth round FA Cup tie against Middlesbrough this Friday, and there are concerns over the concentration of all involved at the 20-time English champions. 

Greenwood was reportedly released from jail on bail on Wednesday.
