Mason Greenwood’s performances for Getafe and Manchester United’s struggles in front of the goal raise the question of whether Eric Ten Hag and the club’s board made the right decision when sending him out on loan. The 22 year old excelled in his team’s 3:3 draw with Atletico Madrid, and even received praise from Antoine Griezmann when the game concluded. After a detailed look at Greenwood’s and his Manchester United colleagues’ statistics this season, one jaw-dropping fact occurs. Mason Greenwood has scored 3 goals in 14 LaLiga outings so far in the 2023/24 season, while Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Rasmus Hojlund, and Antony have also scored 3 goals, but in a combined 55 matches.

On top of that, Greenwood has provided 4 assists, while only Rashford of the current Red Devils quartet has delivered a final pass – once. If we devide the goals and assists by the game time, then Greenwood gets involved in a scoring action every 146 minutes, while the current United players register a goal or assist every 807 minutes. Such stark contrast in efficiency underlines the impact Greenwood has had in LaLiga compared to the collective struggles of his former teammates at Manchester United.
Are you wondering how did Mason Greenwood perform when he was still part of Manchester United? He played a total of 83 Premier League matches, with a return of 22 goals and 4 assists. These figures translate to a goal involvement every 98 minutes, an achievement even better than his current one of 146 minutes with Getafe.
