Osasuna fans release scathing Mason Greenwood statement to La Liga



| Last Updated:


Getafe loanee Mason Greenwood played against Osasuna on the weekend after their supporters published a statement about the Manchester United forward.

Greenwood, 22, joined the La Liga side in the summer after United’s internal investigation into the charges against the player.

He was arrested on suspicion of attempted rape, assault and coercive control in January 2022 and despite those charges being dropped, it was decided that Greenwood would leave the club.

Getafe signed the academy graduate on loan on deadline day and he has since scored five goals and assisted four times.

Greenwood’s debut for the Spanish side came against Osasuna in mid-September, where he was targeted by the away supporters with chants of ‘Die, Greenwood’, which led to Osasuna being fined.

The 22-year-old faced up against the same team on Sunday and received similar chants during the narrow 3-2 defeat.

According to Cadena Copa, their ultras group had urged all fans to condemn Greenwood’s presence on the pitch and also the decision of La Liga president Javier Tebas to allow the player to join the league.

Their statement read: “La Liga allows a detainee accused of attempted rape, assault resulting in actual bodily harm and controlling and coercive behaviour to compete in its competition. Once again, economic interests take precedence over the fight for a society without any type of oppression. A rapist will play on Sunday in our house.”

Greenwood’s future at Old Trafford is unknown and a permanent decision will likely be made in the summer.

There are several clubs who have been linked to the forward, including the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
