Man Utd fans make demand to Rangnick as Alejandro Garnacho impresses for U23’s

Manchester United fans have called for interim manager Ralf Rangnick to roll the dice and play Alejandro Garnacho for the remainder of the season.

It is no secret that the Red Devils have struggled so far this season, so much so that their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places are now gone and they will have to settle for a lesser European competition next season. Though there is no guarantee that they will qualify for those competitions either.

And with the season all but over and preparation beginning for the arrival of Erik ten Hag, United fans want to see youngsters given the opportunity to impress at Old Trafford. Spanish youngster Garnacho was on the scoresheet for the United Under-23s on Sunday in their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool Under-23s.

Garnacho raced in behind the Liverpool defence before lifting a cute finish over the goalkeeper to round off what has been a memorable week for the 17-year-old. The goal showcased the pace, energy and composure that Rangnick’s side has lacked for a lot of this season, and many are calling for the former Atletico Madrid forward to be handed his first start for the club.

But with United taking on Brentford on Monday night, it is somewhat unlikely that his first start is right around the corner. Responding to Garnacho’s goal on Twitter, one United fan wrote: “He should be playing tomorrow, not today.”

Whilst another said: “Come on Ralf, you have to start him Monday night.” The exciting young prospect starting two games in two days is unlikely for Garnacho, and one thinks it was a bad decision for him to feature for the under-23s, commenting: “Should have played tomorrow.”

Another added: “This lad just oozed such confidence. He’s so clinical and calm in front of goal and his explosive pace is a nightmare to keep up with. Should definitely be involved in Ten Hag’s first team next season. He deserves it.”

Garnacho came off of the bench against Chelsea late on to make his Premier League debut, and Rangnick spoke of why he handed the youngster the opportunity at full time. The German explained: “He has been training with us the last two weeks and he is one of the most promising players.

“He is only 17, but if he keeps his feet on the ground, he will not only be sitting on the bench but will be playing for this club.” It remains to be seen whether the forward makes a cameo appearance against Brentford on Monday night.
