Manchester United Players Removed From FIFA 22 After Being Arrested For Sexual Assault

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed’s Mason Green­wood has been removed from FIFA 22, after the foot­baller was arrest­ed on charges of sex­u­al assault and threats to kill.

Green­wood was brought in for ques­tion­ing over the week­end fol­low­ing social media posts from his part­ner, where she showed injuries that were report­ed­ly inflict­ed by Green­wood. Audio of threats made by the ath­lete were also shared, before every­thing was removed to begin a for­mal investigation.

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed, the Eng­lish Pre­mier League club that Green­wood plays for, has barred him from train­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing in match­es until the mat­ter is resolved. EA has also tak­en its own steps to remove the play from FIFA 22, updat­ing the active ros­ter to omit Greenwood–while also remov­ing him from FIFA Ulti­mate Team and Ulti­mate Draft.

Green­wood remains an option in the team in Foot­ball Man­ag­er 2022. The license hold­er Sports Inter­ac­tive stat­ed it “has not yet made a deci­sion as to Mason Greenwood’s sta­tus in Foot­ball Man­ag­er 2022 and will not do so until the find­ings of the cur­rent police inves­ti­ga­tion are made pub­lic,” accord­ing to a state­ment that was pub­lished in The Ath­let­ic.

EA’s removal of Green­wood comes after the price for his card in Ulti­mate Team mode sky­rock­et­ed after the alle­ga­tions broke. The devel­op­ers of the game attempt­ed to resolve this prob­lem by lock­ing the play­er’s price in place over the week­end, but the removal has made it clear that this will no longer be an issue.
