Greenwood removed from Konami games till further notice

Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood has been removed from Konami’s football games “until further notice”.

Greenwood, 20, was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of rape and assault. He was further arrested for sexual assault and threats to kill on Tuesday, and was then released on bail pending further investigation on Wednesday.

Konami, a global partner of United since 2019, has removed Greenwood from their football games as a result.

The games manufacturer said in a statement: “In light of the serious allegations made against Mason Greenwood, the player will be removed from our football titles until further notice.

“Specifically for PES 2021 on mobile, users cannot newly obtain the player, but existing owners are unaffected. KONAMI condemns violence of any kind. While police inquiries are ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further.”

On Tuesday, EA Sports confirmed that Greenwood would be removed from FIFA, the popular video game.

Sports Interactive, maker of Football Manager, said it has not yet made a decision on removing the United forward from its game.
