Ten Hag sends warning to Manchester United wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho

Erik ten Hag has sent a message to Manchester United youngster, Alejandro Garnacho.

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 on Sunday vs Fulham and netted a crucial goal in injury time to hand Erik ten Hag and co. the three points.

Now, though, just as Garnacho is picking up steam, the Premier League is on hold for a month due to the World Cup.

As a result, Ten Hag has warned the youngster not to get complacent:

“This shows what talent can do but it is still a long way to go,” Ten Hag said. “He has to keep his feet on the ground. He has to do much more investment. Big players know that, young players don’t know.

“Now it’s a four-week break, that’s already a danger for him, because he now has momentum. Let’s see how he’s coming back. We have to manage that with him. His attitude is good and I’m certain he will have an impact.

“The danger is four weeks, no games, lose focus, less investment. It’s only when he stays on the same attitude that he’s working the last three, four or five weeks the process will keep going and his progress will keep going. If not, it goes the other way around.”
