Mason Greenwood marked his return to professional football by making his debut for his new club, Getafe, on Sunday.
The 21-year-old striker, who is on loan from Manchester United, entered the game as a substitute during the second half in a thrilling 3-2 victory against Osasuna.
Greenwood will be spending the entire season with Getafe, as Manchester United chose to part ways with him after a six-month investigation into his behaviour.
A criminal case against Greenwood, stemming from his arrest on charges of attempted rape and assault, was dropped in February.
Although Greenwood has a contract with Manchester United until 2025, it is unlikely that he will play for the club again.
Before his debut for Getafe, the striker had not played a competitive match since January 22, 2022. During his 18-month suspension from United, he underwent an individual training program away from the club to prepare for his return to professional football.
It’s worth noting that during the match, a small group of Osasuna fans expressed negative sentiments towards Greenwood.
“The chants [against Osasuna] were very bad and the chants against Greenwood were very bad too,” he said. “He is a player who, in the end, the justice system had its say.
“He is a very good player. But if we talk about chants, we should talk about all the chants, not just some.”
