Gary Neville disappointed with the club's reaction to the Mason Greenwood case

Gary Neville has commented on Manchester United's decision to terminate Mason Greenwood's contract. The young Englishman will seek his happiness elsewhere. Greenwood is a child of this club and has done great things in a short period of time.

However, accusations of attempted rape and assault kept him away from football for some time. In the end, Greenwood was found not guilty. Gary Neville believes United made the right decision. 'Yes, they have. They finally got there.

It was clear from day one that he would not play for Manchester United again. They have got there, but their process has been pretty horrible. I think with Manchester United… When you have significant, difficult decisions it requires strong and authoritative leadership and that comes from the very top.

Manchester United don’t have that. On an issue like domestic abuse and violence against women, there needs to be independence.' - he said, as quoted by METRO.

Gary Neville and his reaction

The former right-back of Manchester United believes that the club did a totally bad job when it comes to the whole process from day one.

It seems that the club's leadership immediately accused Greenwood, who was under heavy criticism at the time. Greenwood is still under criticism, but the situation is much 'quieter' than then. ‘It shouldn’t be that Manchester United are the judge and jury on such a significant issue – not just for themselves – but for the whole game.

People talk of [it] affecting the reputation of Manchester United, but it is the Premier League as well. My view is that on issues of this importance and severity, they should be dealt with independently by a panel. It has been clear that Manchester United have not had the skill and ability to deal with this situation properly.

It’s been well above their grade of experience and ability.’ It is still unknown where Greenwood will continue his career.
