Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has told his players to focus on football after teammate Mason Greenwood had all criminal charges against him dropped.
The prosecution said on Thursday that charges against the 21-year-old were dropped after key witnesses stood down.
United must “go through their own process” before deciding what to do next, with Greenwood still suspended by the club.
“We always have to focus on the game no matter what,” Ten Hag said.
Greenwood was arrested in January 2022 amid allegations regarding images and videos.
He was later charged with attempted rape, authoritarian and coercive behavior and assault causing actual bodily harm.
Hours after the allegations surfaced at the start of 2022, the striker, who made one appearance for England, was suspended from playing or training with the Old Trafford club.
When asked if he had anything to say about Greenwood, Ten Hag replied: “No. Nothing. I can’t add anything, I refer to the club’s statement.”
On whether he spoke to the England striker and whether he was part of the club’s process, the Dutchman added: “As I said, at the moment I cannot comment on the process.
“I can’t say anything about it, I refer to the club’s statement and, at the moment, I can’t add anything.”
The BBC understands Greenwood will not return to training or playing until the club’s process is complete.
