Getafe sends a message to Mason Greenwood as footage surfaces of the Man United striker in training

Mason Greenwood was seen participating in training with Getafe for the first time since his loan transfer from Manchester United.

Earlier this month, it was announced that both United and Greenwood had agreed that his career would be best served away from Old Trafford. On the transfer deadline day, Greenwood finalized his loan move to the Spanish La Liga club, Getafe.

The Englishman was observed training alongside his new teammates on Tuesday, and you can view the footage below.

Whilst posting a video of Greenwood walking out for his first training session, the caption read: “We love you, @masongreenwood.”

Greenwood also sent a message to fans, he said in a video: “Hi Getafe fans, Mason here, I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started.”

Since Greenwood’s move to Getafe was confirmed, the Spanish club have received criticism from a domestic abuse charity.

Ana Bella Estevez of the Ana Bella Foundation said to theMirror: “Getafe executives should never have hired Mason Greenwood and should immediately overturn their decision. If you’re a public-facing organisation like Getafe there is no excuse to take a neutral stance on violence against women — you must take moral responsibility.”

However, manager Jose Bordales defended the club’s decision to bring in Greenwood, he said: “It is a very delicate situation to trivialise that issue. Everyone knows what happened and appropriate measures were taken.

“Everyone knows how it ended, with a non-conviction. He is a footballer of a very high level and arrives at Getafe with huge enthusiasm.”

Confirming Greenwood’s loan move, United said in a statement: “Mason Greenwood has signed for La Liga side Getafe on a season-long loan, subject to international clearance. The move enables Greenwood to begin to rebuild his career away from Manchester United.

“The club will continue to offer its support to Mason and his family during this period of transition.”
