Getafe game suspended after fans aim chants at Mason Greenwood as manager releases furious statement

Getafe game suspended after fans aim chants at Mason Greenwood as manager releases furious statement

Getafe's latest La Liga match was briefly paused by the referee.

Getafe's La Liga clash against Deportivo Alaves was briefly suspended after fans aimed chants at Manchester United loanee Mason Greenwood.

Greenwood has spent the entire season on loan at Getafe after Manchester United completed an internal investigation into his behaviour last year.

The investigation commenced after charges of attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour and assault against the 23-year-old were discontinued by the CPS last February, who cited 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'.

Greenwood has scored eight goals and provided six assists in La Liga this season, with the forward Getafe's third-highest goalscorer behind Borja Mayoral (15) and Samu Omorodion (nine).

But he could not add to his tally in Getafe's away clash at Alaves on Friday night, which Jose Bordalas' side lost 1-0.

On 18 minutes, the match was briefly stopped by referee Jorge Figueroa Vazquez amid audible chants of 'Greenwood, die' towards the Manchester United loanee.

An announcement over the PA system asked home fans to stop their chanting towards the forward, and according to the Daily Express, the chants decreased once the message was sent.

Bordalas, however, was incensed with how the situation was dealt with by the referee, claiming to media after the game had concluded: "The referee slammed the door at the end of the game.

"He said, 'I'm sick and tired of putting up with this team'. Imagine if any player or coach had said that. They would have sanctioned us.

"Now there is no sanction for the referees? It's what we can't understand. He says, 'I'm fed up with this team'. It always happens to us with this referee, it doesn't happen to us with any others.

"There was a very important detail. They sang, 'Greenwood, die'. The protocol says that when it happens a second time, the game must be stopped and the players must go to the locker room.

"It has not been done, and if the referees are the first to not comply with the protocol, the insults and racism will never end."
