MANCHESTER United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has denied he is the Premier League star arrested for assaulting his girlfriend.
The 24-year-old has faced “hurtful” rumors caused by the revelation that a Anonymous player has been fooled when police stormed his home, first reported by The Sun.
Following the report, social media was flooded with people speculating who the unnamed, internationally honored star might be.
Many pointed their fingers at Henderson, but the keeper was forced to quash the rumours.
He said on Instagram: “Can’t believe I have to do this but I just wanted to address the rumors that have come to light over the last few days.
“There are some sad people in the world who have attached my name to stories that are inappropriate, hurtful and completely untrue.
“I have a family that has even been affected by this so wanted to quell the rumors and move on.”
The Premier League star in question was arrested for an assault on his girlfriend after she called the police.
He is also said to have sent her abusive late-night texts.
The player hired an attorney before agreeing to pay her – believed to be a five-figure sum – in an out-of-court settlement.
A football source said: “This is quite worrying, especially after the claims about Greenwood.
“In this case, the footballer used his own money to get lawyers to deal with him and did not keep an eye on the public.
“He reached an agreement and that effectively silenced the girl in question and stopped the court action.
“Although her statement is very serious, and includes at least one allegation of domestic assault.”
Police confirmed that they were called, but the player could not take any further action because the “community resolution” was agreed.
The star, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested in 2019 and is no longer related to his accuser.
ACE TO WOMEN
Teresa Parker, of Women’s Aid and founder of Football United’s Domestic Violence Campaign, believes players’ money is used to wipe out abuse under the carpet.
“This case shows how significant power and money in football can be synonymous with allegations of domestic abuse – or other forms of violence against women – by players,” she said. is considered an issue that needs to be managed.
“As in this case, what can happen is that every attempt is made to make what is perceived as a problem go away.
“All football clubs and organizations need to have a domestic abuse policy in place, to ensure they don’t become an enabler and excuse for men who abuse their partners.”
