BRADFORD-BORN Mason Greenwood returned to a football pitch for the first time in 20 months earlier today.

On Sunday, the 21-year-old made his first appearance for his new club Getafe, coming off the bench against Osasuna with 13 minutes of the contest remaining.

Greenwood made the switch to Spain on deadline day after it was announced last month that he would continue his career away from Manchester United.

He was suspended by United last year over allegations relating to a young woman after images and videos were posted online.

He faced charges including attempted rape and assault but the Crown Prosecution Service announced the case had been discontinued in February this year.

Greenwood had a hand in the home side's winner in the 3-2 win, earning a corner from which Nemanja Maksimovic scored.

Earlier, Stefan Mitrovic opened the scoring for Getafe but Iker Munoz equalised just before half-time.

Jose Carmona headed in to restore the home side's lead in the 51st minute but Ante Budimir's penalty six minutes later levelled things up for a second time and that was the extent of the goalscoring prior to Greenwood's introduction.

Unused substitute Fabrizio Angileri received a red card for dissent in the closing stages but the hosts held on during 10 added minutes to seal the win and maintain their unbeaten home record.

Getafe's next match is at high-flying Real Sociedad next Sunday.
