That’s according to a recent report from the Daily Mail, which claims members of the Red Devils’ backroom staff have been worried about the troubled striker for several months.
It has been suggested that the attacker has struggled to remain grounded after shooting to stardom, amplified by his whopping £75,000-per week contract.
This report comes after it was recently confirmed that Greenwood, 20, had been arrested on suspicion of assault and rape following shocking allegations made online on Sunday by former partner Harriet Robson.
It is perhaps no surprise to see United and its senior hierarchy work overtime to distance themselves from the disgraced footballer.
Although Greenwood’s future remains up in the air until more facts are established, there is no denying that his image is tainted and when it comes to public relations – Manchester United are notoriously conscious of their commercial reputation.
Last weekend’s eye-opening news would have undoubtedly shocked the club, but when there were supposed worries for such long a time, perhaps there were fewer surprises.
