On January 30, another shock occurred in the English Premier League – the police of Greater Manchester arrested 20-year-old Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood, who is accused of raping and causing bodily harm to a girl named Harriet Robson. Making bets on MU games is better on best betting site in Tanzania here. It was she who posted images and videos of her abrasions on her body on social networks, publicly condemning Greenwood for physical abuse and attempts to force her to have sex.
The management of Manchester United reacted instantly – Greenwood was suspended from training with the team even before his official arrest, and did not return to them even after he was released on bail. At the same time, according to media reports, the Red Devils, for their part, continue to fulfill the terms of the contract with Greenwood, paying him a salary.
The situation with Greenwood has become the third in the current season of the English Premier League, directly related to the players of the participating clubs, who are accused of sexual crimes. Last summer, it became known that one of the Premier League players was arrested, whose name was not disclosed at first, but later it became clear that this was Everton’s Icelandic legionnaire Gylfi Sigurdsson. The 32-year-old midfielder is accused of sexual crimes against minors (in other words, pedophilia). And although after his arrest, he, like Greenwood, was released on bail, in the camp of “taffy” the reaction was immediate – the Icelander was removed and his future career in football is under a huge question.
We must not forget the case of Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy, who is also not up to football these days. At the moment, the Frenchman is charged with participation in at least eight episodes of sexual violence, and this player spent 134 days behind bars before he was also released on bail in January of this year until the final verdict of the court was announced.
In fact, such cases, alas, are not uncommon in modern football. Many players who get to the top level simply lack the intelligence and education, not to mention high moral standards, to properly behave in society. Easy money falling on them at a “tender age” leads to the formation of false, if not perverted, values and outlooks on life. A number of footballers simply believe that they are allowed in this world, if not everything, then almost everything, and any responsibility can be trivially paid off or deftly evaded with the help of legal loopholes.
