The Mayor of Marseille, Benoit Payan, has made a very clear statement regarding the rumored transfer of English player Mason Greenwood to Marseille.

English forward Mason Greenwood appears to be unable to escape the shadow of the scandal that has tainted his career and forever marred his public image.

The Manchester United player is on the verge of transferring to French club Marseille, with reports indicating that a deal has already been reached with United. However, it was expected that negotiations would soon be overshadowed by the scandal from England, which led to his arrest for assaulting his partner, Harriet Robson.

Even the Mayor of Marseille, Benoit Payan, has expressed outrage over the club's intent to sign a player with such a controversial past.

"Greenwood's behavior is unacceptable and outrageous. Beating his wife... I saw the photos, and I was shocked. Beating your wife in such a way is inhumane, and such a person cannot have a place in my club."

"The values of the club are everything but this. It’s a disgrace. I will tell Pablo Longoria (president of Marseille) not to buy him. I do not want my club to be covered in shame because of someone who beats his wife," Payan said.

The scandal began in 2022 when Harriet Robson shared photos and video footage online of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Greenwood. Greenwood was arrested and suspended by his club, later being released on bail before being re-arrested for breaching bail conditions. While awaiting trial, there was a sudden twist as Robson withdrew all charges, reconciled with Greenwood, and the couple even welcomed a child shortly thereafter.
