Mason Greenwood's Instagram post after scoring his first goal for Getafe has reached over a million likes in less than 24 hours.
The 22-year-old joined the La Liga side last month for the 2023/24 season from Manchester United and made his league debut earlier that month in Getafe's 3-2 win over Osasuna. Greenwood now has his first goal for the club after he put the team 2-1 ahead in the first half of their game against Celta Vigo. The lead didn't last for long as nine minutes later, Rafa Benitez's side equalised as both teams picked up a point.
It's been a less than stellar start for Greenwood's new team who sit 11th in the league, having won just two of their opening nine league games and has conceded the joint-third most goals in La Liga. The Bradford-born forward took to Instagram after the game where he posted snaps of he and his team-mates celebrating his goal while writing: "Happy to score my first goal for Getafe, amazing team spirit to come away from the game with a point".

Greenwood's arrival in Spain came after controversy over a potential return to Manchester United where he was expected to suit up for his parent club after a lengthy internal investigation. The Premier League club stated their plans were to begin his return to the first-team set up which was widely criticised by football fans as well as Women's Aid, the domestic violence charity.
The club then back-tracked on his return and instead sent him out on loan as their statement back in August read: "All those involved, including Mason, recognise the difficulties with him recommencing his career at Manchester United. It has therefore been mutually agreed that it would be most appropriate for him to do so away from Old Trafford, and we will now work with Mason to achieve that outcome."

The charges he faced were dropped in February earlier this year which brought about the potential for Greenwood to be reintegrated into the team – but a review led to him being sent out on loan.
