In a La Liga clash between Getafe and Almeria at the Coliseum, Mason Greenwood, on loan from Manchester United, showcased his brilliance with a remarkable goal.

Cutting in from the right, the Englishman unleashed a powerful left-footed shot that soared past goalkeeper Luis Maximiano into the top corner, equalizing the score.
Getafe secured a 2-1 lead before halftime, with Borja Mayoral adding to the tally in the 45th minute. Greenwood’s loan move to Getafe was finalized during the summer transfer window, following a mutual decision between the player and Manchester United. This decision came after Greenwood’s suspension by United in January 2022 due to legal issues. The forward faced charges of attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behavior, and assault. However, all charges were dropped in February, leading to his loan move to Getafe.
Recent reports suggest the possibility of Greenwood returning to Manchester United, with sporting director Paul Mitchell reportedly monitoring his performances at Getafe. Despite the speculation, a source indicates that Greenwood is keen on extending his stay with the Spanish club, appreciating the warm welcome from both players and fans.
The source mentioned, “He really feared his career was over. Now he’s just so happy and wants to carry on playing and not think too far ahead.” Manchester United’s coach, Ten Hag, acknowledged Greenwood’s capabilities, stating that he has shown in the past that he is capable of scoring as a forward for the club. However, any decision regarding Greenwood’s return will not solely be determined by Ten Hag.
As Greenwood continues to make a positive impact at Getafe, his future remains uncertain, with potential discussions about his return to Manchester United adding an intriguing layer to the ongoing narrative of his career.
