Erik ten Hag was pleased with the winger’s performance against Unai Emery’s side and said:

On Garnacho’s performance, Erik ten Hag added: “I think it was good that also when he [Alejandro Garnacho] came on that he showed performance that he has an impact in the game.

“Quite clear, with two assists, some good dribbles, runs behind, but also some things he has to improve.

“For instance, when we go for the long ball, don’t go for the header with Scott McTominay, go for the second ball.”

According to MEN, Alejandro Garnacho has an active contract with Manchester United that runs until 2025.

Garnacho is gradually becoming fans favorite, with Jadon Sancho struggling to make impacts lately.
