Mason Greenwood.

It comes after her father said she was ‘completely devastated’ after sharing gory images showing cuts and bruises she said the England striker, 20, caused.

He said he was also gutted because the Manchester United star ‘has been part of our family for two or three years.

Two officers were spotted at the family home in Stockport, Greater Manchester, today and took her statement.

This morning Ms Robson, 20, posted videos on Instagram of a huge cut on her lip as well as bruises across her legs and hip.

Manchester United said it was aware of the allegations, police said they are looking into it while Greenwood’s sponsor Nike said the company was ‘deeply concerned.

Athletes such as sprinter Adam Gemili and politicians including Caroline Nokes slammed the footballer and wished Ms Robson well.

An updated statement from Manchester United this afternoon said: ‘Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.’

It comes after Mr Robson told MailOnline the family had been devastated by the news.
He said: ‘The first thing we knew about this was at 6 am this morning. It is dreadful. I’m just coming to terms with it all.

‘As a father, you don’t want to know things like that happening to your daughter. The police have been around and she has made a statement to them.

He added: ‘She is completely devastated by it all.’

Ms Robson had taken to her Instagram stories to share images and videos of the abuse she claims she suffered.

The first clip showed her with blood dripping down her chin and chest from a huge cut to her top lip.
She wrote: ‘To everyone who wants to know what Mason Greenwood does to me.’

It was followed up with an image of her right knee littered with bruises as she sat on a sofa.
The next picture showed her eyes filled with tears and what appeared to be a black mark on the ceiling behind her.

A third photograph was of what looked like her hip with a large purple bruise spread across the joint.
She also shared a Snapchat shot from her home in Stockport, Greater Manchester, featuring bruises up her left arm.

And a final photograph showed another mark across the top of her left arm and shoulder.

The pair separated after it emerged Greenwood had a tryst with an Icelandic model that saw him kicked out of the England football squad in 2020.

But they reunited eight months later in November that year and shared videos of them larking around at home.

Greenwood has had a series of run-ins with his club team following his ‘general tardiness’.

In September 2020, Greenwood was sent home in disgrace by England after he and Phil Foden broke Covid protocols by inviting two women back to the hotel in Iceland.

Both issued public apologies, with Greenwood promising to learn from his ‘huge mistake.’

Foden was invited back into the England team, scoring twice against Iceland this week, but Greenwood was not immediately.

MailOnline also revealed how Greenwood got into further trouble for holding rowdy house parties throughout the coronavirus lockdown at a secret address.

The young striker rented the three-storey home through Airbnb ‘five or six times during the pandemic where neighbours complained they were kept awake.

Greenwood and Harriet are from Wisbey, near Bradford and have known each other since their school days at Ashton on Mersey School in Greater Manchester.

The striker was still at the school when he became Manchester United’s youngest ever player in the Champions League, making his debut against PSG aged 17.

Dubbed United’s ‘new wonder kid’ he broke into the first-team squad in 2020, scoring ten goals before football stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Domestic abuse charities, athletes and politicians rushed to wish Ms Robson well and question Greenwood’s actions.

Charity Women’s Aid said: ‘Distressing posts being circulated on social media today #MasonGreenwood.
‘It is essential that all employers, including those in football, take domestic abuse very seriously and we hope Man Utd do in this case.’

The statement added: ‘Solidarity with Harriet Robson. #FootballUnitedAgainstDomesticViolence.’
British sprinter Gemili said on Twitter: ‘It’s happening every day to thousands of men and women. We all need to raise awareness to help combat domestic violence.’

Tory MP Ms Nokes put: ‘Investigation into allegations about Mason Greenwood is for @gmpolice not @ManUtd - and Harriet Robson needs support for her bravery in speaking out.’

Jess Phillips MP said: ‘I had never heard of Mason Greenwood before. I hope he faces the full force of the law, unlike so many people accused.’

She added: ‘Until the case is settled it would be unfathomable that he be allowed to play.’
