Christian Eriksen shares remarks on Alejandro Garnacho following his imposing performance against Aston Villa

Alejandro Garnacho seems to be the newest young star to emerge at Manchester United, a team that is never short of talented young players.

The seasoned Denmark international, who is knowledgeable about beautiful passes, was very moved by Alejandro Garnacho’s performance at home against Aston Villa.

With his outstanding performances in recent weeks, the former Atletico Madrid academy prospect is beginning to make a convincing case for why he should be a regular in the first team.

In front of the Red Devils’ supporters, Garnacho put on another strong performance in the Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa.

In his 30-minute cameo, Garnacho, who came on around the hour mark, managed to record two assists, the second of which was absolutely spectacular.

The young Argentine picked up the ball on the left side of the field, about 45 yards from the goal, and sent in the most inviting cross, which Scott McTominay’s boot caught.

The Scottish midfielder scored United’s fourth goal from such close range, but Garnacho received most of the praise for his Kevin De Bruyne-like assist. The particular way Christian Eriksen responded told a story all by itself.

Such was the beauty of Garnacho’s whipped cross that Eriksen couldn’t help but point in the 18-year-old’s direction and acknowledge the fantastic pass before congratulating McTominay.

It frequently happens that the player who actually scores the goal is the one to whom teammates react first.

Garnacho‘s brief United career has recently progressed, with the teenager displaying excellent poise to score his first goal as a senior during the 1-0 away victory over Real Sociedad earlier this month.

Having said that, life hasn’t been easy for the Argentine, who was born in Spain. The comments made by teammate Bruno Fernandes may have brought the high of scoring his first goal crashing back down to earth.

When asked about Garnacho’s goal-scoring prowess, Fernandes acknowledged that he was glad for him.

Fernandes also said that the teenager’s mentality throughout the preseason left much to be desired and is the reason we are only seeing these kinds of performances now.

The 28-year-old told BT Sport, “He is good, but he knows we want a lot from him. He is obviously still very young and is succeeding greatly.

He wasn’t at his best at the start of the season, and during the [pre-season] tour, he didn’t act with the proper attitude. As a result, he didn’t get many opportunities until now.

Now that he is training better, adopting a different mentality, and deserving of his opportunities, he is getting them. Everyone is incredibly happy for him and proud of his accomplishment.”

The expectations are great for Garnacho, and the 18-year-old hasn’t given any signs that he’s likely to falter in the face of them.
