Manchester United winger, on loan to Getafe, has faced persistent taunts from fans throughout his time in La Liga. Opposition supporters have specifically targeted the 22-year-old during away games.

In Greenwood’s recent match against Alaves, the abuse continued. The game was paused in the 18th minute as officials attempted to calm the crowd, but the harassment persisted without further intervention.

Getafe has expressed frustration over La Liga’s failure to uphold its promises, with rules stating that matches should be suspended if such incidents occur repeatedly. Getafe’s coach, Jose Bordalas, told DAZN about the lack of action in Spain: “They have sung ‘Greenwood die’ and the protocol says that when it happens a second time, the game has to be stopped and the players have to go to the locker room. I have read it. And the referee has not done it. If they are the first to not comply with the protocols, it will never stop.”

Despite the hostility, Greenwood has maintained focus and enjoyed a successful stint at Getafe, reaching double digits in goals scored this season. He is now rumored to be attracting interest from clubs like Juventus, Atletico Madrid, and Napoli for a summer transfer.
