Alejandro Garnacho has told Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag his best position after an impressive month for the youngster which saw him named Manchester United Player of the Month.
After scoring his first goal for the club away to Real Sociedad in the Europa League, he came off the bench to provide two assists in the Carabao Cup victory over Aston Villa. The 19 year old then scored the winner as Manchester United beat Fulham 2-1 just before the World Cup break.
“I’ve always liked to play out wide on the left, as a right-footed player able to cut inside,” Garnacho told Manchester United’s official website. “To be able to play as a right-footed player down the left, you also have to be pretty decent with your weaker foot.
“From an early age, I’ve always practiced hard using both feet, because that makes you into a much better player and so nowadays I can play with both feet – not to perfection but to a good standard.
“Thankfully I was able to score those two goals with my other foot without too much difficulty.”
“Erik Ten Hag is a very good manager and, above all, he’s a great person,” Garnacho added. “He always pays very close attention to us all, and helps us a great deal, especially the young players.
“I’ve had to keep working hard until that moment came where I was given my opportunity. For the moment, I’m making the most of the opportunities he’s giving me.
“I don’t want to take a backward step from here, I’d like to appear regularly in the team and keep going in the same way.”
