Mason Greenwood makes Getafe debut while on loan from Manchester United

Mason Greenwood has made his debut for LaLiga side Getafe on Sunday.

The forward, who is on loan from Manchester United, is making his first appearance in football since his suspension by the Red Devils in January 2022.

The 21-year-old left the club following the conclusion of an internal investigation into his conduct.

Greenwood was charged with attempted rape, assault and controlling and coercive behaviour, but those charges were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February.

The club announced in August that he would leave and eventually joined Getafe on loan on deadline day.

On Sunday, he made his first appearance for the Spanish club as he made a substitute appearance in the 78th minute.

He forced a corner that led to Getafe’s third in their 3-2 win over Osasuna.

It was Greenwood’s first match since Manchester United’s 1-0 win over West Ham in January 2022.

Speaking ahead of his debut, Getafe manager Jose Bordalas told Radio MARCA: “It was a surprise, we never thought we could get a player like that.

“But they [Man United] got in touch with our sporting director, we talked, we didn’t think it could happen but both sides made an effort [financially].

“He is a fantastic player. You have to be patient, calm, he hasn’t played in a year-and-a-half. We and his colleagues are helping him. He is integrating in a sensational way and I hope he can help us.”

His former Man United teammate Amad Diallo posted on Instagram about Greenwood’s debut.

He uploaded a picture of his TV showing Greenwood coming on for Getafe with love heart emojis.
