Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood made a dramatic start to his loan spell at Getafe as his new side beat Osasuna 3-2 in La Liga yesterday.
The 21-year-old’s extremely controversial move to the Madrid-based outfit has gained as much attention in England as it has in Spain and it has been reported this morning that Osasuna are facing punishment from the Spanish league after visiting supporters chanted “Greenwood, die” towards the forward.

After coming onto the pitch in the 77th minute with the scoreline at 2-2, the former England international’s shot was deflected out for a corner which resulted in the winning goal, headed in by central midfielder Nemanja Maksimovic.
Following the match, Getafe manager Jose Bordalas had to apologize for suggesting that Real Madrid superstar Jude Bellingham had played a big part in Greenwood’s transfer to Getafe.

The much-disputed transfer also led for sports brand Nike to come out and publicly confirm that they have no ongoing association with Greenwood, despite the player wearing their boots this weekend in his first professional match for over 18 months.
“The statement still holds true. Mason Greenwood is no longer a Nike athlete”, a statement read.
