Alejandro Garnacho set challenge by Erik ten Hag

Alejandro Garnacho shone for Manchester United vs Leeds on Sunday.

Garnacho, who is still just 18 years of age, is enjoying an excellent breakthrough campaign with Manchester United.

The Argentine’s latest outing came as the Red Devils saw off bitter rivals Leeds by two goals to nil on Sunday.

Garnacho came off the bench the Peacocks and scored a superb goal to wrap up the win for United.

However, earlier in the week – also vs Leeds – Garnacho did come in for some criticism.

Now, Erik ten Hag has been discussing the Garnacho criticism and set a challenge to the teenager.

Ten Hag told MUTV on the back of a win at Elland Road when asked about the criticism that has come Garnacho’s way: “It’s normal. He’s a young player and he has to learn a lot. We saw on Wednesday he was making great actions but not finishing. I think he had to finish in that moment.

“It has to do with focus but also with preparation. Today it was the same. In the first minutes he was not in the game and you have to be ready. After the first goal he improved and showed his great skills, his pace, his dribbles, his timing and it was a great finish too.”
