Marcus Rashford makes Alejandro Garnacho prediction after top Aston Villa performance

Marcus Rashford has predicted that Alejandro Garnacho will become an important player for Manchester United after his superb Aston Villa performance.

Erik ten Hag brought the teenager on midway through the second half while United were trailing 2-1.

The Argentine made a huge impact by providing two assists to help Manchester United stage a comfortable 4-2 comeback.

His superb cameo performance came after the youngster had scored the only goal against Real Sociedad in the Europa League last week.

Rashford believes Garnacho has more goals and assists inside him and backs him to keep improving.

“He’s full of energy and confidence. It’s refreshing to have someone like that on the bench, who can come on and make a big impact,” Rashford told MUTV. “It’s just the start for him. There’s a lot more goals to come.”

Erik ten Hag reacts on Garnacho’s performance: “I think it was good that also when he [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.”
