Mason Greenwood 'makes thoughts clear' over Spanish FA's Jude Bellingham investigation

Mason Greenwood 'makes thoughts clear' over Spanish FA's Jude Bellingham investigation

Greenwood has reportedly made his thoughts clear.

Mason Greenwood has reportedly made his thoughts clear on the Spanish FA's investigation into Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham allegedly made a comment towards Greenwood during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Getafe last month, in which the two players started for their respective sides.

Getafe made a complaint to La Liga, and the alleged incident was then referred to the Spanish FA (RFEF).

The report read (via ESPN): "After the match, messages were detected through social media regarding a possible incident in which visiting player Jude Bellingham allegedly insulted local player Mason Greenwood in English after a game play.

"Numerous media outlets have reported on this incident, as evidenced in the attached incident report."

Neither player, nor Real Madrid or Getafe, have publicly commented on the alleged incident.


On February 14, The Sun reported that the RFEF had appointed a judge to investigate the complaint, with a judgment to be reached in the following two weeks. A judgment in the case is yet to be announced.

Now, The Sun claim that Greenwood has asked for the case to be dropped, as he does not want Bellingham to be punished for any alleged comment.

The 22-year-old is currently playing on loan at Getafe from Manchester United, after an internal investigation into his behaviour concluded that the forward would leave Old Trafford by mutual consent.

He hasn't played for United since January 2022, before he was arrested on suspicion of rape and assault. He was subsequently charged with attempted rape, engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm in October.

Those charges were discontinued last February, with the CPS stating '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'.

New United minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe, whose INEOS company will take over footballing operations at Old Trafford, told The Athletic that the club would make a 'fresh decision' on Greenwood's future.

He explained: "The process will be - understand the facts, not the hype, and then try and come to a fair decision on the basis of values, which is basically: Is he a good guy or not, and answer, could he play sincerely for Manchester United well, and would we be comfortable with it and would the fans be comfortable with it?"

Ratcliffe also said: "What we need to do when having issues like that is understand the real effects - not the hype. Then we need to make a fair decision in light of the club's values. That is what we need to do and that is how we will deal with it."

SPORTbible has contacted Getafe CF for comment.
