Alejandro Garnacho is continuing his path to stardom with another goal for Argentina while away on international duty.
Exactly one month ago to the day, Manchester United’s young reds were lifting the FA Youth Cup after beating Nottingham Forest.
Without question, the star of that show was Alejandro Garnacho. The young attacker has become the poster boy for the U18 team over the last few months, while also earning global recognition.
Garnacho made his full United debut and also earned a place in an Argentina senior squad back in March. That’s pretty incredible given he’s still so young.
This summer is huge for Garnacho. With a new manager coming in, the forward will be looking to impress during pre-season tour. In many ways, this is where it all could potentially start for the former Atletico Madrid man.
Before Garnacho starts the hard work at domestic level, he’s continuing his rise to stardom with another top international performance for the Argentina U20s.
Last night, Garnacho scored in a 3-2 victory over Japan’s U20s, taking his tally to 4 goals in 4 games at that age group.
Garnacho himself would take to Twitter shortly after, admitting just how proud he is to wear that shirt.
This young man just absolutely oozes class on and off the field. Garnacho is already playing with maturity beyond his years and he absolutely deserves praise for that.
You get the impression that no stage is too big for Garnacho. He’s already loving being in the limelight and the only way is up.
As a fan, there’s nothing better than watching someone from the academy come through and prove their worth at the first-team level. I know Garnacho is a relatively new addition at United, having joined from Atleti in 2020, but we’re watching him develop into a top-class player right before our eyes.
With some first-team minutes under his belt during pre-season, there’s every chance Garnacho could impress and force his way into Ten Hag’s plans proper. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if he hits the ground running. Heck, some of our first-team regulars could learn a thing or two from him!
