La Liga president responds to Sir Jim Ratcliffe in fresh Mason Greenwood statement



| Last Updated:


La Liga president Javier Tebas has stated that he hopes Manchester United loanee Mason Greenwood stays in Spain beyond this season.

Greenwood, 22, moved to Getafe in the summer after it was confirmed that he would not return to United’s first-team squad.

In February 2023, the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) discontinued its case against the United player for attempted rape, assault, and coercive control. Greenwood denied all the alleged offences.

Originally, the plan was to reintroduce the academy graduate into Erik ten Hag’s side, but the club would undergo a U-turn following public backlash to the initial decision.

The winger has now played 25 games for Getafe since signing on loan until the end of the season. He has scored seven goals and registered five assists.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has recently explained that INEOS will be taking a fresh look at Greenwood’s situation, with the new co-owner not ruling out a return for the 22-year-old.

Since then, Javier Tebas has urged Greenwood to continue his career in La Liga after a positive start in Madrid.

Speaking at the Financial Times Business of Football Summit, the La Liga president said: “Maybe the circumstances have made it easier for him to come, but he’s a great player, and I have got no other comments to make.

“He’s doing really well at Getafe as a player and I hope he continues to be successful and he continues to stay in Spanish football because that’s always good for us.”

He added: “When someone isn’t condemned, what should we have done? This is what courts exist for. It is not up to me to know his case in detail. He is just another player.”
