PSG star blamed for poor attitude of Manchester United player

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes playing alongside Lionel Messi at international level could have led to Alejandro Garnacho having a poor attitude at the start of the season.

Following Garnacho’s goal in the 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad, Bruno Fernandes revealed that attitude troubles had forced the youngster to be overlooked at the start of the campaign.

Fernandes told BT Sport: “He did well tonight, but he knows we still expect a lot from him. He did not start the best during pre-season and maybe did not have the attitude that he should have had. But he has changed that now and you can see that with his performances on the pitch.”

Reacting to Fernandes’ comment, Scholes told BT Sport: “He said that was in pre-season, so maybe he was too big for his boots in the summer.

“He did go with Argentina and play with Messi, and maybe he has come back and thought ‘this is me and I am part of this team’.

“He’s a young lad, he is going to learn and we are going to see the benefits of that.”
