Paul Scholes was full of praise for Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho after his performance in the Europa League on Thursday.
Erik ten Hag gave Garnacho his first full start for Manchester United against FC Sheriff in the Europa League. The young winger did not enter the minutes, but was a constant threat down the left flank.
Garnacho was substituted towards the end of the match to a chorus of cheers from the Old Trafford faithful, and Manchester United fans weren’t the only ones pleased with his performance.
Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Scholes praised Garnacho. “This crowd loves entertainment. I think this guy was really entertaining. Almost like a young Christian at that age,” Scholes said.
Being compared to a player of the caliber of Cristiano Ronaldo is a huge compliment for Garnacho, especially coming from one of the best midfielders in Manchester United history in Scholes.
Garnacho is still young so he shouldn’t expect to start week after week for Manchester United, particularly in the Premier League, but there is no doubt he has a bright future ahead of him and can play a role for the club for the rest of the season. the season.
