Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag can keep his Ajax promise with Alejandro Garnacho decision

Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho will hope that Erik ten Hag can live up to his word, after the Dutchman admitted that he will play the best players for the position regardless of age.

With an average age of 26.6, United have the eighth oldest team in the Premier League this season. Fulham have the oldest side with an average of 27.8, while league leaders Arsenal have the youngest at just 24 years of age.

As Garnacho calmly slotted the ball past past Bernd Leno on Sunday, he became the youngest player to score an injury-time winner in the league since Federico Macheda in 2009.

The teenager sparked wild celebrations as he wheeled away in sheer delight, sending United into the World Cup break on a high. Of course Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan has, and will continue to, cast a dark shadow over the club – but no matter how wild this week has been, that moment will never be taken away from Garnacho.

The hope for the Argentine will now be that Ten Hag is left to sit and reflect for the World Cup break with his stoppage-time winner etched into his manager’s mind.
