Alejandro Garnacho

Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho has scooped the club’s Player of the Month award for November.

The Argentine has enjoyed a fantastic few weeks, scoring his first senior goal, earning his first Premier League start and capping it off with a dramatic late winner last time out at Fulham.

He struck the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Europa League and followed that up with another memorable strike in United’s win at Craven Cottage. The 18-year-old sealed 67 per cent of the votes from United fans, with David de Gea (21 per cent) and Casemiro (12 per cent) coming second and third respectively.

Garnacho has clearly impressed manager Erik ten Hag and has featured prominently over the last month.

Ten Hag said after the Fulham victory: “Alejandro had a big impact in the win, he [scored] also, then the spotlight is on that and that is also justified because it was a great finish, because that is what you expect from subs coming in.

“I am really happy with his progress. We have an extra player in the squad and I’m happy for the academy that we bring out the player, the coaches, really well done, good work, great. But also, I want to emphasise the way we scored that goal all the way from the back to the front, outplayed, composure and I think it was a massive, brilliant assist from Christian Eriksen.”
