Former Man Utd defender Gary Neville says Alejandro Garnacho’s “arrogance” means he is destined to succeed at Old Trafford.
- Scores winner at Fulham
- Neville likes his attitude
WHAT HAPPENED? Garnacho came off the bench to net a stoppage-time winner for Man Utd against Fulham on Sunday. United manager Erik ten Hag and captain Bruno Fernandes have both talked about issues with the youngster’s attitude this season, but Neville thinks a certain amount of ego and arrogance are key for youngsters at Old Trafford.
WHAT THEY SAID: “If you’re a young player at Man United you’ve got to have arrogance,” Neville told Sky Sports. “You have to have ego, he looks like he’s got that and passion as well. He’s just delivered a moment of brilliance and he’s broken Fulham’s hearts. They played so well in the second half, James scored but Garnacho the hero.”
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Garnacho has now scored two winning goals and picked up two assists in the space of 10 days for United. The teenager clearly has an exciting future ahead of him and is starting to demonstrate just why he is so highly regarded at Old Trafford.
