Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho names his favourite position to play in

Alejandro Garnacho has made quite the name for himself in recent weeks.


The 18-year-old is the latest top talent to emerge from Manchester United’s academy and has so far featured 10 times for the Red Devils.

Garnacho scored the only goal of the game as Man United beat Real Sociedad in their final Europa League group game.

He then came off the bench vs Fulham and netted a crucial goal in injury time to hand Erik ten Hag and co. the three points.

Now, in a recent interview, the Argentine has been discussing that goal:

“For the Fulham goal, I’d been keen to come on and we were drawing one each at the time,” he explained to club media.

“The situation in the game was just right for the counterattack, and for running at people, which is what I like to do.

“I played a one-two with Christian Eriksen and he put me in with a great pass as I ran in behind the defence and I was able to finish it off. In that moment, everything was very intense, and I could hardly believe it!”

Garnacho then revealed his preferred position for Manchester United:

“I’ve always liked to play out wide on the left, as a right-footed player able to cut inside,” he noted.

“To be able to play as a right-footed player down the left, you also have to be pretty decent with your weaker foot. From an early age, I’ve always practiced hard using both feet, because that makes you into a much better player and so nowadays I can play with both feet – not to perfection but to a good standard.

“Thankfully I was able to score those two goals with my other foot without too much difficulty.”
