Roberto De Zerbi spent the last two years in England, but claims he is unaware of the background of the scandal involving the player he now wants to bring from the Premier League to French Ligue 1.

The Mason Greenwood case made significant waves in England last year, far beyond just football or sports circles. The young and talented striker was involved in physical and psychological abuse of his partner, and when the scandal broke, evidence in the form of videos, audio recordings, and photographs quickly circulated online.

Greenwood's girlfriend chose not to testify in court, so the case was dismissed. The couple is still together and has a young child.

In England, Greenwood quickly became unwelcome, and last summer he went on loan to Spanish club Getafe. This year, he will need to find a new club again, as his future at Manchester United seems unlikely. Several potential destinations have been mentioned.

Recently, Roma's Lazio was in the running, but currently, French club Marseille, recently taken over by Italian coach Roberto De Zerbi, is the most likely destination. De Zerbi, who spent the last two years in England with Brighton, made a surprising statement about Mason Greenwood. He claims not to know the background of what happened with the 21-year-old, despite being "close."

"Mason Greenwood is among the best talents in the world. I don't know the background of what happened. When someone becomes my player, they practically become my child, and I will always protect them," De Zerbi said. This statement has certainly not convinced the English public.

It is hard to believe that anyone who was in England during that period would not know the details of the Greenwood case, which was highly publicized.
