Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag, has said that the club’s youngster Alejandro Garnacho was ‘not good enough’ in his previous matches this season.
He said this following the Argentine’s outstanding performance that saw him score in the Red Devils’ Carabao Cup win over Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.
Manchester United recorded a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup.
Garnacho put the Red Devils in front and United followed that up.with goals from Casemiro and Anthony Martial.
“You have seen at the start of the season we played him and then his contribution was not good enough,” Ten Hag said of the young Argentine.
“But he also had some good actions. You see, he is always a threat in the game even when he is not playing that well.
“He has to learn that when he does his job in defending he will always have his moment and he will always be decisive because he has great qualities.
“As well, it’s not only off the ball. But I want to see like today, he is entering the box in the right spot to finish.
“But I think it is quite normal for a player of his age that there is space for a lot of improvement.
“Everyone likes him, the fans like him, the team likes him, I like him but we also have to demand from him and push him because he can act on a very high level but he has to show it every day.”
