There were reportedly chants calling for Mason Greenwood’s death as the Manchester United striker made his Getafe debut in the 3-2 win over Osasuna.

Greenwood was suspended by United last year over allegations relating to a young woman after images and videos were posted online and was charged with attempted rape and assault, among other charges. However, the Crown Prosecution Service announced in February this year that the case had been dropped.

Greenwood looked brilliant and was involved in his side’s winning goal, winning a corner from Nemanja Maksimovic.
Stefan Mitrovic had previously scored Getafe’s first goal, but Iker Munoz equalized just before half-time.
Jose Carmona headed the hosts’ lead back in the 51st minute, but six minutes later a penalty from Ante Budimir secured the second equalizer and that was the extent of the goal tally before Greenwood’s substitution.
Unused substitute Fabrizio Angileri received a red card for inconsistency in the closing stages, but Getafe held on in the 10 added minutes to secure victory and maintain their unbeaten home record. Their next game is next Sunday against top club Real Sociedad.
