Greenwood appeared at the Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester for a hearing on wearing a black suit, black tie and white shirt today November 21, 2022.

Greenwood's parents were present at the hearing although they didn't with the forward only being asked to confirm his name when he appeared before the prosecutor.

The United forward has been granted bail by Judge Maurice Greene with the same conditions as the first bail that he was granted few months ago.

He was given bail with conditions not to contact witnesses, including the complainant, and to reside at an address in Bow Green Road, Bowdon.
