Mason Greenwood has been added to Konami’s eFootball 2023. The Manchester United star, along with his namesake Mason Mount were added to the team’s roster and players can now buy them off the Standard List.
Konami is United’s official video game partner. The official squad list was announced on Saturday in the game’s new release. eFootball’s developers had decided to remove Greenwood’s avatar from their 2022 database following the English forward’s arrest.
Mason Greenwood was arrested in January 2022. In October he was charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behavior and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The 21-year-old denied all charges before they were dropped in February.
The United star has not played since January 2022. He does have a contract till 2025, with the Premier League club holding an option to extend for one more year.
Man United and manager Erik Ten Hag have not made any official statements on Greenwood’s potential return to football. However, the eFootball 2023 feature seems like a positive for the forward.
