Manchester United fans have urged the club to return Mason Greenwood to the club after he scored a goal of the season contender for Getafe during their game against Almeria

Manchester United fans were left ruing the club’s decision to let Mason Greenwood depart when the forward scored a wondergoal as Getafe came from behind to beat Almeria 2-1 in La Liga on Sunday.

Almeria struck first when Adrian Embarba flicked a header towards the far post from a corner and Largie Ramazani couldn’t miss from a yard out.

However, Getafe restored parity as Greenwood drifted in from the right wing onto his left foot and unleashed a thunderous angled drive into the top corner to make it level the scores.

There was an element of luck when the turnaround was complete before the interval as in the build-up, Juanmi Latasa’s header was deflected into the path of Borja Mayoral, who struck a vicious first-time half-volley into the bottom corner.

Greenwood’s goal-of-the-season contender was the talk of among United fans online as they compared the struggles of the club’s forwards this season to the young striker’s form.

“Mason Greenwood is on fire, meanwhile Manchester United attackers can’t even score tap ins,” said a supporter.

Others even went ahead to say he was far better than many of the forwards at United combined.

“Mason Greenwood is the best young talent Man United have had since Cristiano Ronaldo,” commented another fan.

“Mason Greenwood definitely starts over Antony when he’s back at United.”

“Mason Greenwood is taking over La Liga so fast. If you still don't want him back in red I'm sorry. You're the problem,” commented another fan who wants Greenwood back at United.

“Mason Greenwood has more goals than Antony and Rashford combined this season.”

“Mason Greenwood has scored more league goals this season than Rashford, Antony, Garnacho, Sancho and Martial combined. Hard to believe Man Utd paid 100 million for Antony.”

“Mason Greenwood is who Manchester United fans think Antony is, has more league goals this season than all their attackers.”

Another fan summed up Greenwood’s situation in one tweet.

“Mason Greenwood; Was punished by his country for being a teenager. Was targeted and abused by the media. Reconciled with his girlfriend. He has silenced all his haters coming back from two years without football and putting up world class performances for Getafe.”

Greenwood, who has four goals and three assists in all competitions, was loaned out to Getafe on deadline day in the summer transfer window after United decided against reintegrating him into the squad after completing an internal investigation over his alleged rape and assault charges.

The forward had charges of rape and assault against a woman dropped by a Manchester court in February but United conducted their own investigation before making the decision in August.

Greenwood has not played for United since January 2022 when he was suspended by the club in the wake of the grave allegations against him.
