In Manchester United’s ongoing season, as is customary, several players find themselves on loan at various clubs. One of the standout names from this loan army is Mason Greenwood.
The young United forward is currently plying his trade at Getafe, and his journey has been a mix of highs and lows. Greenwood marked his Getafe debut on September 17 with a stellar performance against Osasuna, where his corner kick led to his team’s winning goal in a thrilling 3-2 victory.
However, the soccer gods quickly brought him back down to earth as Getafe suffered a 3-4 defeat at the hands of Real Sociedad, despite a late goal by Juanmi Latasa.
Greenwood made his entrance as a substitute in the 68th minute, taking up a position on the right side of the attack. Unfortunately, he couldn’t make a significant impact as his introduction coincided with his team trailing 2-3.
During his time on the pitch, Greenwood displayed flashes of skill in the attacking areas and even tested the goalkeeper with a well-struck shot late in the game. However, his overall involvement was limited, completing just two passes despite playing for almost half an hour, including added time.
The frenetic pace of the match seemed to pass him by, making it a challenging outing amidst the chaos. Despite a late attempt at goal, he couldn’t bring his team back in front as he did against Osasuna.
Greenwood has now made two consecutive appearances off the bench, gradually accumulating playing time. Given his undeniable quality and impact, particularly in the Osasuna game, it’s safe to assume that his debut start for Getafe is on the horizon.
Getafe’s upcoming fixtures include an away game against Athletic Bilbao, but the home clash against Villarreal on September 30 could be the stage where Greenwood earns his first start for the club.
