Mason Greenwood chants force La Liga match to be SUSPENDED as stadium announcer steps in

Getafe’s La Liga clash with Alaves was briefly suspended because of chants directed towards on-loan Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood, 22, has been with Getafe all season, with United having decided last August that it was best for him to continue his career away from Old Trafford. In February 2023, he had charges of attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm – all of which he denied – dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service

During his loan spell with the Madrid-based club, Greenwood has been subject to chants related to the allegations. Saturday’s game away to Alaves was latest to involve such chants, as play was halted for two minutes shortly after Alaves took an early lead

It’s understood that some staff members from Getafe continued to take issue with what was being said towards their 22-year-old loanee throughout remainder of the game. Club officials are yet to reveal whether or not they plan to lodge a formal complaint to La Liga.

Alaves held on to claim a 1-0 win, subjecting Getafe – who had substitute Ilaix Moriba sent off in the 95th minute after his second yellow card – to their fourth successive defeat. Greenwood played the full 90 minutes but was unable to add to his tally of eight goals and six assists in La Liga this season.

Mirror Football understands that the once-capped England international won’t play for United next season, with the Premier League club considering a second loan spell or permanent sale. Greenwood has a contract with his boyhood club which runs until June 2025, although United have the option to extend it by a further 12 months.
