Garnacho’s brother launches social media attack after Man Utd win over Wolves
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag reviews Wolves win
Alejandro Garnacho’s brother has taken to social media to slam a YouTuber after Manchester United beat Wolves 2-0 on Saturday. The Red Devils boosted their hopes of Champions League football next season with a hard-fought victory at Old Trafford. Two more wins from their remaining three fixtures will see them return to Europe’s top-tier competition following their absence this season.
Earlier in the season, YouTuber Rants N Bants needlessly criticised Garnacho and branded the United star as ’s***’.
It was a statement that sparked a big backlash online, with many supporters jumping to the defence of the 18-year-old.
And taking to social media after Garnacho scored in United’s 2-0 win over Wolves, younger brother Roberto Garnacho couldn’t resist taking a pop.
He said on Twitter: “Apologise as much as you disrespected, b******. @rantsnbants.”
Roberto then followed that up by uploading a zoomed in image of Rants N Bants and said the words ‘this he is that guy’, accompanied with crying emojis.

The sibling of the United star also uploaded a mocked up picture of Garnacho kneeling before a throne sat on by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Garnacho was wearing the famous No 7 shirt in the image, while also holding his No 49.
And it’s possible the United youngster will be in line for a shirt number promotion come the summer given his growing stature in the side.
Garnacho has become a key player for United this season and is currently on track to become a superstar at Old Trafford.
The forward has scored six goals from 33 appearances this term, with three of those coming in the Premier League.

And he’s also registered six assists, too, with the United star now on the verge of becoming a regular part of Erik ten Hag’s starting XI.
Speaking at his post-match press conference, Ten Hag waxed lyrical over the teenager and is delighted to have the Argentine back in his side.
“Garna, everyone can see it,” he said after Garnacho made his first appearance for United since a goalless draw with Southampton in March.
“He came in and did almost everything good, and scored a great goal that will give him belief.
“It’s good for us for the rest of the season, that he’s back, and can have an impact.”

Ten Hag continued: “One of the aspects of the biggest talent is that they are mature.
“First, they take responsibility then second, they are mature to bring in the skills and have belief that they can dominate opponents.
“Once again, he did it. He has had a big impact in many games: whether starting or coming on, he’s straight into the game and that’s so important for the squad.
“I’m happy we can bring in young players and, hopefully, he will progress so quickly that he can compete for a starting XI position, because that is his next challenge.”
On what Garnacho needs to do next, the 53-year-old added: “Making decisions, being aware, scanning situations, when to go one-on-one, get behind, when to go for goal or make an extra pass.
“Decisions like that are what makes a good player a top player – that is the difference.
“But when you see it overall, he’s a huge talent and very brave.
“It shows that the pathway is open for young players at United. And if you work in the right way, work hard, we can guide you to get into the team.
“But, in the end, it’s about the player – he has to invest and have a plan to do it.”
