Mason Greenwood’s attempted rape trial will begin on November 27 of next year.

The Manchester United footballer, 21, appeared in Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court this morning for a 10-minute hearing.

Greenwood, dressed in a black suit, spoke merely to offer his name and residence. There was no plea entered.

Judge Maurice Greene re-bailed him until February 10, when he is scheduled to appear in court for a pre-trial hearing.

On October 15, Greenwood was formally charged with:

Between November 1, 2018 and October 15, 2022, engage in controlling and coercive behavior.
Assaulting someone and causing them bodily harm between December 12 and December 31, 2021

According to the Crown Prosecution Service, all three charges are related to one accused victim who cannot be identified at this time.

Following her first court appearance on October 17, Greenwood was denied bail and remanded in custody by a magistrates court judge. Three days later, he was released after a successful appeal.

United has suspended Greenwood “pending the conclusion of the judicial process.” Before being accused, the club stated that he was being paid in full during his suspension, which was in the region of £75,000 per week.

On January 22, he made his last Premier League debut against West Ham United. When the charges initially appeared, he was quickly dropped by a number of sponsors, including Nike. He was also expelled.
