Video footage has surfaced capturing Mason Greenwood’s inaugural training session with Getafe, and the La Liga club has openly declared their affection for the Manchester United loanee.
Greenwood, the talented Manchester United winger, embarked on a loan journey to Getafe for the season on the recent deadline day. In a snapshot shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, Greenwood proudly displayed a Getafe jersey as a symbol of his affiliation with the club.
He has now actively participated in his very first training session with the Madrid-based squad, and the club has shared a video showcasing the 21-year-old English international in action. In this captivating clip, Getafe affectionately expressed, “We love you Mason Greenwood.”
Enthusiastic fans attending the open training session could be heard cheering for the player, displaying their excitement as they vocally celebrated his goals during a shooting drill, as seen in a separate video clip.
Mason Greenwood recently broke his silence about his transfer to Getafe with a heartfelt video message addressed to the club’s supporters. In his message, he conveyed his happiness, stating, “Hi Getafe fans, it’s Mason here. I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started.”
Notably, his loan agreement is said to include a provision allowing him to return to Manchester United if the temporary move doesn’t prove successful.
This loan deal comes after a challenging period for Greenwood, as he had not participated in competitive football since January 2022 due to legal issues. He was arrested on suspicion of rape, assault, and making threats to kill, but all charges were subsequently dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service in February. However, Manchester United conducted their internal investigation and announced in August that Greenwood had no future at Old Trafford.
As he joins Getafe, Greenwood will don the No.12 jersey, and fans eagerly anticipate his potential debut after the international break, slated for September 17 against Osasuna.
Currently, Jose Bordalas’s Getafe side sits 14th in the LaLiga standings, facing a slow start to the 2023/24 campaign
