    Keeping their distance

    Cristiano Ronaldo and other Manchester United aces have unfollowed striker Mason Greenwood after he was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault yesterday.

    Greenwood, 20, spent the night in a police cell after cops swooped over the allegations which came to light on Sunday morning.

    The Premier League club initially said it did “not condone violence of any kind," but later suspended the £75,000-a-week star as a police probe was launched.

    A spokesman for the club said: “Mason Greenwood will not return to training or play matches until further notice.”

    Now fellow stars have unfollowed their team mate, with striker Cristiano Ronaldo being the first after the allegations came to light.

    Jesse Lingard, David De Gea, Paul Pogba, Ederson Cavani and Scott McTominay have all unfollowed Greenwood on Instagram.

    Other members of the squad, including captain Harry Maguire, are still following the star.

    Speaking after the pair golfed together in Dubai, McIlroy said: “I saw him [Maguire] on the range this morning.

    “I was rushing to the first tee because I was late so I didn’t get a chance to see him hit any. It’s great to have those lads out here.

    “He seems like a great leader, a great motivator, the sort of personality that you would want to captain a football team and someone you look up to.

    “He’s actually a lot bigger than I realised standing beside him. Like standing next to him, he’s a big lad, I wouldn’t want to get tackled by him, that’s for sure.

    “Good to see him out there and hopefully, I think the break for everyone involved is probably needed and they can get back and be refreshed and end the season well.”

    More from United’s Brazilian brothers

    Fabio added: "When my brother came back after the first period, after 20 days of training with Manchester United, he was very excited about everything. He's grown a lot.

    "I didn't go with him the first time because I was with Brazil's under-15s, so he went on his own.

    "But when he came back he was really excited, he was talking about everything: how big the training ground was, the players he met, who he had been with Sir Alex Ferguson.

    "He was really excited. To be honest, we're twins, so of course he told me everything and more, but I couldn't feel the same enthusiasm as he did at that time."
