Greenwood was barred by Manchester United from taking part in training or playing any match until further notice. It can thus be concluded that he would not be seen on the football pitch for some time to come. The striker was also arrested on Sunday after these allegations and horrifying pictures surfaced on social media. A spokesman of the Greater Manchester police was quoted saying, "Greater Manchester Police was made aware earlier today (Sunday 30 January) of online social media images and videos posted by a woman reporting incidents of physical violence. An investigation was launched and following enquiries, we can confirm a man in his 20s has since been arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. He remains in custody for questioning.
