Mason Greenwood played his toughest La Liga game against Rayo Vallecano, MySportDab reports.
He bagged the first red card of his career in the match after a fallout with the match referee Figueroa Vasquez.
Three Getafe players saw red in the match with Greenwood the second of the three players to be sent off.
Juanma first met his marching orders from Vasquez before Greenwood, and then Damian Suarez.
In a disappointing game for the Madrid-based club, they ended the match with 8 men and Rayo Vallecano capitalize on the depleted numbers of their opponent to run away with a 2-0 win, thanks to a brace from Camello.
Mason Greenwood’s red card stoke controversies as he did not foul a player to be booked but met his marching orders after apparently protesting Figueroa Vasquez’s officiating.
Greenwood whined on Vasquez’s decision not to award Getafe a freekick after he was fouled by his opponent.
Spotting the 22-year-old fumed on his refereeing decision, Vasquez issued him a red card, sending him off.
In his match report, Vasquez explained that Mason Greenwood used a swear word in him, hence his decision to send him off.
“In the 50th minute the player (12) Greenwood, Mason Will John, was sent off for the following reason: For addressing me in a sign of protest and raising his arm, in the following terms: “F*** you”.
”Once sent off, he takes the finger to the temple making a repeated gesture as a sign of disagreement with the decision made.”
Mason Greenwood has denied the allegations, saying he did not direct the swear word on the referee. According to him, he said “f**k sake,” not “f**k you” which Vasquez has alleged.
Reports from Spanish outlets claim investigations have begun into the allegations with Greenwood facing a possible four-match ban if found guilty.
