Every opportunity that Alejandro Garnacho has in the Manchester United first team, shows Erik ten Hag who has the necessary quality to enter their plans and be one of the fixed attackers in the rotation. However, after the great performance that the 18-year-old Argentine had in the match against Aston Villa for the League Cup, the Dutch coach dedicated a few words to him. And while he praised him for his talent and his improvement in recent engagements, he also had some warnings.

Grenachemade a very outstanding entry in the second half of the match that qualified the Red Devils to the next round of the Carabao Cup. He came on in the 62nd minute in place of France's Anthony Martial as his side were beaten 1-2 at Old Trafford, but provided two assists (the second was exquisite) for United to finally beat the Villains 4-2.

“He has been very good, how he has come off the bench and how he has had the impact he has had on the game. He has assisted, has dribbled and has thrown unchecks ”, valued Erik ten Hag at the end of the match.

However, the Dutch coach also said that Alejandro Garnacho has a long way to go: “He still has things to learn, but we are very happy with his development and what he brings to the team. Now, it depends on his attitude. If he continues to work, it is possible that he will play more. He wants to improve every day. He has to do the right things in his life, he has very good qualities.

The performances of Garnacho have really been very outstanding in the last weeks. With his two assists against Aston Villa, he became the youngest footballer (18 years, 4 months and 9 days) of Manchester United to record an assist double in official competitions during the last decade. The young Argentine attacker had just scored his first goal as a professional in the 1-0 victory against Real Sociedad on the last date of the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.

However, judging by the statements from those around the English club, Garnacho had attitude problems during the preseason but started to work better in recent months. According to his teammate Bruno Fernandes, one of the captains of Ten Hag, that was the reason why he hadn't had many opportunities until now.

“He has been good, but he knows we expect a lot from him. He is still very young. Everyone is very happy for him and satisfied with his goal. At the beginning of the season, during the tour, he didn't have the best attitude and that's why until now he hasn't had many chances to play”, said Fernandes in an exclusive dialogue with the BT Sport microphone after the European match played in San Sebastián.
