“F*** you” – Referee report detailing why Mason Greenwood was sent off revealed



| Last Updated:


The referee report detailing what led to Mason Greenwood’s red card for Getafe against Real Vallecano on Tuesday afternoon has been published.

Mason Greenwood‘s positive form while on loan at Getafe took a turn for the worse on Tuesday afternoon after he became one of three players sent off as Getafe lost 2-0 against Real Vallecano in La Liga.

Greenwood has not played for Manchester United since January 2022 after being arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse, although the charges were eventually dropped by the CPS. He has since travelled on loan to Getafe for the season, where he has scored five goals in 15 appearances.

Against Vallecano, Greenwood was shown a straight red card by referee Jorge Figueroa Vasquez in the 50th minute of the fixture, and his match report detailed the altercation which led to his decision.

“In the 50th minute, the player (12) Greenwood, Mason Will John, was sent off for the following reason: For addressing me in a sign of protest and raising his arm in the following terms: ‘F*** you’,” the report reads.

“Once sent off, he takes the finger to the temple making a repeated gesture as a sign of disagreement with the decision made.”

Greenwood, however, reportedly insisted that he was saying ‘F***’s sake!’ rather than directing the swear word specifically at the referee.

If the events detailed in the report are found to be true, Greenwood could face up to a four-game ban, meaning he would miss La Liga fixtures against Espanyol, Osasuna, Granada, and Real Madrid.

The player has been linked to Barcelona in recent weeks, with the club reportedly wanting to offer him their No. 10 shirt in a £40 million attempt to sign Greenwood this coming summer.
