Manchester United legend Louis Saha has urged Alejandro Garnacho to follow the example of Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo to avoid becoming another Federico Macheda or Adnan Januzaj.

Asked if it is a risk that Garnacho could just as easily be another Macheda or Januzaj, Saha told Sky Sports: “Yeah it happens, that’s why he needs to actually keep working hard.

“The best example is Cristiano Ronaldo, you see his work rate, his ambition. He had as well this arrogance, or this confidence, and if you have this balance you will go far.”

Garnacho scored a late winner as Manchester United beat Fulham 2-1 at the Craven Cottage.
