La Liga is investigating a claim that Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham insulted Getafe’s Mason Greenwood during their recent game.
Getafe filed a complaint, and La Liga aims to act based on solid evidence. The incident occurred after Bellingham tackled Greenwood in Real’s 2-0 victory.
A viral clip triggered the investigation, though it’s unclear who the alleged comment was directed to. La Liga stated that a formal complaint was filed, and they are seeking a lip-reading expert’s report for a thorough examination.
Greenwood, on loan from Manchester United, faced controversy earlier, while Bellingham, a recent Real recruit, joined for 103m euros.
La Liga is currently investigating an incident involving Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham and Getafe forward Mason Greenwood during Real Madrid’s recent 2-0 victory. Reports suggest that Bellingham may have made insulting remarks towards Greenwood, his fellow Englishman, during the match.
Getafe lodged a formal complaint with the La Liga match director, prompting the league to take action. In response to the allegations, La Liga has employed a lip-reader to analyze the incident and provide a detailed report. The league intends to act based on the findings of the investigation.
Greenwood, 22, is currently on loan to Getafe from Manchester United until the end of the season. He faced suspension from the Premier League club in January 2022 following allegations of misconduct towards a woman. Despite charges, including rape and assault, being dropped in February 2023 after an internal investigation, Manchester United decided to let Greenwood continue his career elsewhere. The striker has since made a significant impact at Getafe, scoring four goals in 18 league appearances this season.
Bellingham, 20, has been a standout performer in La Liga since joining Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in the summer. The midfielder has emerged as the joint-top scorer in the division with 14 goals. The ongoing investigation adds an unexpected twist to what has already been an eventful season for both players.
