Bruno Fernandes on Alejandro Garnacho: "He didn't have the best attitude in the.."

Manchester United won against Real Sociedad (0:1). The scorer of the only goal was Alejandro Garnacho. Bruno Fernandes, the captain of the team, was delighted with the young player, but he also emphasized that Garnacho did not have the right attitude in the preseason.

"He [Garnacho] was good, but he knows we expect a lot from him. In the [pre-season] tour, he didn't have the best attitude. That's why he didn't get chances. Now he’s getting his chances because he's training better, [he has a] different attitude, and he deserves it."

- Fernandes said, as quoted by eurosport.com Manchester United needed to win by 2 goals. They tried to threaten in various ways, but in the end, a minimal victory and 2nd place in the group is something they can be happy about.


"Our goal today was winning the game by a two-goal difference; we knew that. I think we did a great game; we tried everything and took a little bit more risks in the second half to win the game. They are a tough opponent but being top was of the group was our main aim, but we have another win," said Fernandes.
"We knew we would have to take more risks in the second half to get that goal.

We did that, we knew that they could have more chances because we had less people defending. It is another clean sheet which is important to us, and as I said before, it is another win that keeps us on this run, and that is important for the confidence of the squad."

Paul Scholes on Alejandro Garnacho

Former United player Paul Scholes praised the young Garnacho "He has been United’s most dangerous player. It’s a good header from Bruno [Fernandes], a brilliant pass from Cristiano [Ronaldo].

The right-back is struggling to get back, and that first touch is okay, but that second touch really makes the goal. The ‘keeper doesn’t cover himself in glory, and he could have possibly done a little bit better."

Owen Hargreaves is also satisfied with the Argentine. Garnacho has shown that he is a great talent. At only 18 years old, he was one of the best on the field, and the same is expected of him for the rest of the season. "That is the great thing about young kids; they play with enthusiasm.

Every time he gets the ball, he runs forward; it’s great to see him embrace with Cristiano [Ronaldo]. United have looked to play long balls, and it’s worked, so credit to them. It’s incredible for the young man."
