A female fan held a placard with a profanity-laden placard condemning the club’s refusal to rule out Greenwood’s return.

It said, “Don’t let the women’s team decide, you spineless, motherless idiots.”

Others sang protest chants outside Old Trafford in the run-up to United’s start of the season.

The 21-year-old forward could return to the team after charges of assault, attempted rape and coercion were dropped earlier this year.

Greenwood has not played for United since his arrest in January last year.

Before the opener against the Wolves, a group called Female Fans Against Mason urged Greenwood’s Return United never to let him play again.

It said: “We call on the club to do the right thing.”

“For their fans, for their staff, for the millions of little boys and girls around the world who look up to our players as heroes and role models – and for the millions of women whose lives have been marred by violence and abuse.”

“Think of the decision-makers at the club: this goes beyond football.”

“This decision reflects you, your morals; who you are as individuals and as people.

“Will you side with the perpetrators or the abused? History will judge your decisions. Make sure you make a good choice.”

“We female Man United supporters demand that the club fulfill their duty of care to their female supporters and staff.

“Demonstrate a zero-tolerance approach to acts of violence against women by refusing to bring Mason Greenwood back on the team.”

The Crown Prosecution Service dropped the case against Greenwood in February after “key witnesses” withdrew.

However, the player remains suspended while United investigate the allegations themselves.

Last week, Greenwood was photographed training in a park while his father Andrew looked on as he held the footballer’s newborn baby girl.

The Sun exclusively revealed that top-level talks over a potential Old Trafford return are almost complete, while Greenwood has the support of his team-mates and manager Erik ten Hag.

However, he suffered a major setback to his hopes when he was dropped from the team’s provisional roster.
