Lionel Scaloni reveals why Manchester United star Alejandro Garnacho was left out of Argentina squad
From the perspective of Manchester United, the omission of Alejandro Garnacho from the Argentina national team squad by head coach Lionel Scaloni has been a topic of significant interest.
Scaloni’s decision was attributed to a “form issue,” as he expressed reluctance to call up players only to leave them out of the squad frequently. He highlighted the importance of considering the human aspect in such decisions, indicating that while many players aspire to be part of the national team, tough choices have to be made.
For Manchester United, this decision presents both challenges and opportunities. On one hand, Alejandro Garnacho‘s absence from the Argentina squad might be seen as a setback in his development and recognition on the international stage.
Representing one’s country is often regarded as a pinnacle of a footballer’s career, offering invaluable experience and exposure. On the other hand, this could be viewed as an opportunity for Garnacho to focus more on his club commitments with Manchester United.
Remaining at the club during international breaks allows him to train under the guidance of the coaching staff, including manager Erik ten Hag, and to work on specific aspects of his game. This dedicated club time might aid in his personal development, contributing to his form and readiness for future international call-ups.
Speaking about the situation as quoted by Manchester Evening News, here is what Lionel Scaloni had to say
“The reason for not calling up Garnacho? Ale’s non-selection is due to a form issue.. We don’t like to bring players in and constantly leave them out or leave them out of the squad. Everyone wants to be there and it’s great, but the human side plays and you have to make decisions”
The situation also reflects the broader dynamics of player management in modern football, where clubs and national teams often have to balance their interests and the well-being of players. For young talents like Garnacho, navigating between club and country duties can be challenging, but it is also part of their professional growth.
Manchester United, in this context, plays a crucial role in supporting the player’s development and managing his workload to ensure he reaches his full potential. The good thing is that this would help us avoid any injuries with the Argentine winger.
