Ten Hag’s Garnacho warning

Alejandro Garnacho has been warned to start producing a better end product if he wants to stop being hooked.

The 18-year-old winger was clearly unhappy at being subbed off in both the win over Crystal Palace and draw against Leeds.

He even took to social media on Wednesday night with a picture of him beating the floor captioned “When you don’t understand what is happening remember that God is in control”.

But tough taskmaster Erik Ten Hag says he needs to start upping his goals and assists if he wants to be a Manchester United player.

Ten Hag said: “For a Manchester United player, we expect you to have an impact, to influence the score, to influence the result, to positively influence the game by scoring goals and having an assist.

“I think he is doing well, he has an impact on our game, I think he is a threat. Against Leeds, he had good actions, he was lively, created chances, but had to score.

“And finally, it’s about that, that you have an effect. As a striker, you have to at least be on the scoring list, the assist list, key action list to have the right impact.

“Of course, we expect him also to do the other stuff but the base stuff is also important and if you can’t do the others then you have to do that, so that is your base function.”
