MASON Greenwood was greeted by football fans chanting “Die” as he made his debut for Spanish La Liga club Getafe today.
His new team won 3-2 over Osasuna – but the fans were anything but happy with the new player.
It is the first time Greenwood has played in 20 months, with his last game for Manchester United coming against West Ham in January 2022.
The winger was subsequently suspended by United after being arrested on suspicion of rape, control and coercion and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
In February this year, the CPS dropped all criminal charges against Greenwood after “key witnesses withdrew and new material came to light.”
United’s internal investigation into Greenwood ended in August when the club concluded he would not play for them.
And today he played his first game while on loan at Getafe from the Red Devils.
When he entered the pitch in the 77th minute, some of the away team in the stadium shouted “Greenwood, die”.
Osasuna coach Jogoba Arrasate sharply criticized his fans for the taunts.
He told The Athletic: “The ‘Fuck Osasuna’ chants were very bad and the anti-Greenwood chants were also very bad.”
“He is a player for whom the justice system ultimately had the say.
“He is a very good player. But when we talk about songs, we should talk about all songs, not just some.”
GreenwoodsThe opportunity to play comes next Sunday when Getafe travel to the Basque Country to face Real Sociedad.
It came after Greenwood’s girlfriend was reportedly traveling with Getafe Wags as the couple adjusted to Spanish life.
Greenwood and his family are said to have had dinner with the club’s president, and a translator is also available upon request. MailOnline Reports.
The striker’s girlfriend, Harriet Robson, was also welcomed by Wags and visited Madrid’s shopping district.
