Man Utd loanee Mason Greenwood among scorers as Getafe win 12-0 in Copa del Rey

Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood was among the scorers for Getafe during their 12-0 win over Tardienta in the Copa del Rey.

Spanish top flight clubs are entering the Copa del Rey during the ongoing second round, with Getafe drawn against the sixth division side.

Unfortunately for the lower-ranked hosts, the game was quickly over as a contest, with Getafe scoring five goals in the opening 35 minutes.

Greenwood scored twice, netting on 15 and 55 minutes before being substituted on the hour mark.

Seven other players scored in the match, including former Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral, who netted a brace late on to make it 12-0.

Ireland youth international John Joe Patrick Finn also got on the scoresheet for his first goal in senior football.

Greenwood made his debut for Getafe in September, his first appearance since being suspended by United following his arrest on suspicion of rape and assault in January 2022.

The following October, he was charged with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The charges were discontinued in February 2023. In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service said that ‘a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light meant there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction’.

United then conducted their own internal investigation into Greenwood’s behaviour, and concluded in August that the forward would leave the club via mutual consent.

He completed a loan move to Getafe, where he will spend the rest of the 2023/24 season, on transfer deadline day.
