A trial date has been set for Manchester United footballer Mason Greenwood, who is accused of attempted rape, control and coercion and assault.
The 21-year-old actor appeared at Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court for a hearing on Monday.
The footballer, dressed in a black suit, white shirt and black tie, spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth.
Jason Pitter KC, prosecuting, asked for the trial to take place on February 10 next year.
The trial date has been set for November 27, 2023 and the trial is expected to last 10 days.
Requests for cases have not been entered.
Greenwood’s parents were in court for the hearing, which lasted less than 10 minutes.
Judge Maurice Greene granted Greenwood bail on his original condition.
The actor was first arrested in January on charges related to a woman after photos and videos were posted online.
He was granted bail but was arrested in October for trespassing.
Greenwood was remanded in custody after appearing at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on October 17.
A bail application was made in a secret court two days later and he was released from HMP Berwyn Prison, in Wrexham.
He was granted bail with conditions not to meet witnesses, including the appellant, and to live at an address in Bow Green Road, Bowdon.
The attempted rape allegedly took place in October 2021.
The controlling and coercive behavior relates to the period between November 2018 and October this year, when he allegedly made threatening and insulting comments to the complainant, as well as accessing and monitoring her social media accounts.
The actual injury case is for December 2021.
Just hours after it was reported on the internet earlier in the year, the player – who made one appearance for England – was banned from playing or training by the Old Trafford club.
Nike suspended and later canceled its sponsorship deal with Greenwood when Electronic Arts confirmed his removal from the teams involved in its FIFA 22 game.
