Former Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia heaps praise at Alejandro Garnacho
Valencia stated that Garnacho is ‘getting better every day’ after securing his spot within manager Erik ten Hag’s squad.
Garnacho made a total of 34 appearances for United last season, scoring 5 goals and producing 5 assists. The performances earned Garnacho his first call-up to the Argentinian national team.
Valencia told the club media:
Ten Hag has used Garnacho as a super-sub many times as tiring defenders during the late stage of the game leave a lot of space for the 19-year-old to exploit. Garnacho has incredible pace and intelligence to take full advantage of the opponents when they’re tired.
The Argentine attacker came on as a substitute against Wolves and did exactly that. Despite his injury spell, Garnacho showcased his sharpness. Bruno Fernandes provided a perfect assist, and he clinically scored a goal.
Valencia spoke further about what Garnacho brings to the team, he said:
The young Argentinian will look to gain as many minutes as he possibly can while doing a crucial job for his Dutch manager as a super-sub.
We can expect yet another incredible talent from the United youth system, to reach his potential at Old Trafford if Garnacho continues to be consistent as he gains experience.
