Mason Greenwood, who joined Getafe on a season-long loan from Manchester United, has scored his first goal in La Liga.
Mason Greenwood, a temporary transfer from Manchester United to La Liga side Getafe, has made his public debut following his first goal for the team on transfer deadline day. The 22-year-old scored during Sunday night’s 2-2 tie between the Spanish team and Celta Vigo, posting a reflection on the game on social media.

Within two minutes of kickoff in an intense first half, Borja Mayoral had given the visiting Getafe the lead, but Jonathan Bamba pulled Greenwood’s team back. After Domingos Duarte was sent off in the 29th minute, Getafe was reduced to 10 men; however, Greenwood gave his team another lead four minutes later, and Jorgen Stand Larsen equalized just before halftime.
Greenwood’s goal was preceded by Mayoral’s excellent long ball play, which he brought down. The striker then skillfully sidestepped two Celta defenders and played the ball over to the back post, where Greenwood was waiting to score.
After the tie, Greenwood posted on Instagram, saying, “Happy to score my first goal for @getafecf amazing team spirit to come away from the game with a point.” three images from the match, two of which show Greenwood having fun with his new teammates, are captioned.
Greenwood’s goal in a 3-0 victory over Brentford on the road marked his first goal for United since January 2021, but even though he was just out on loan, it might have been his last for the team. He will be leaving Old Trafford, the club confirmed, following a protracted investigation that was wrapped up in August.
Greenwood, who was arrested last year on suspicion of attempted rape and violence, is making an effort to resume his football career. In February, the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the accusations.
Greenwood has made five appearances for Getafe thus far, including two starts. He has also received a lifeline for his international career and already contributed an assist for his new squad.
He only appears unlikely to play again for England under Gareth Southgate, but he qualifies for Jamaica, and their head coach, Heimir Hallgrimsson, made a suggestion that he might be called up at some point.
Regarding the possibility of Greenwood playing for Jamaica, Hallgrimsson stated, “We would like to have the best talent on our team.” “If he gets his former fitness and former levels, then for sure he would have that level to help Jamaica.”
