Man Utd star shows public support for Mason Greenwood on Getafe debut

A Manchester United star appeared to show public support for Mason Greenwood on the player's debut for Getafe.
Greenwood came off the bench to make his Getafe debut against Osasuna in La Liga this afternoon, in what was his first competitive appearance since his arrest in January 2022 following allegations surrounding material which was published online.
In August United said Greenwood would leave by mutual agreement after a six-month internal club investigation. The Old Trafford club's decision came after criminal charges against the player, including attempted rape and assault, were dropped in February.
Diallo posted an Instagram story of Greenwood coming off the bench to make his debut for the La Liga side, accompanied by two heart emojis.
In October 2022 Greenwood was charged with attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
However, the charges were dropped in February 2023, after the Crown Prosecution Service said key witnesses had withdrawn and new material had come to light, meaning there was "no longer a realistic prospect of conviction".
United subsequently started their own internal investigation into the matter.
In a statement last month, Greenwood said he had "made mistakes" and took his "share of responsibility", but added: "I did not do the things I was accused of."
Meanwhile, United's stated in August that "based on the evidence available to us, we have concluded that the material posted online did not provide a full picture and that Mason did not commit the offences in respect of which he was originally charged".
