EPL He had a big impact – Ten Hag singles out Man Utd player after Fulham win. After a 2-1 victory over Fulham on Sunday, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag singled out Alejandro Garnacho for appreciation.
At Craven Cottage, Garnacho scored the game-winning goal for the Red Devils off the bench.
The game appeared to be headed for a tie after Dan James had cancelled out Christian Eriksen’s first goal until the 18-year-old scored.
“It’s a huge victory, and Alejandro Garnacho had a significant influence. He made the winning play, and since it was an excellent finish, the focus has been on it ever since.
It’s what we anticipate of substitutes who come on, but you have to do it, and I’m extremely pleased with his development. There is an additional member of the team.
“I’m pleased for the academy because they have developed a player, as well as the instructors, who did a terrific job.
“That’s terrific, but I also want to emphasize how composedly we scored that goal from the back to the front. I believe Christian Eriksen provided a significant, outstanding assist.
“It would be strange if I claimed to have known [what would occur] before to [sending Garnacho on. It’s somewhat the sensation you’re experiencing. You must have a keen eye.
“Sometimes I’m wrong too, but you could see his potential in this situation and I observed his growth in the previous several months.
“We thought it was the ideal time to bring him in, but you can never predict how much of an influence someone will have at first.
“This demonstrates the power of true genius. He still has a long way to go, though. He has to maintain his footing.
“He needs to put forth a lot more effort since everyone will be able to recognize him, making confirmation all the more crucial. Major players are aware of this. Players under 18 don’t.
“Now that he has momentum, a four-week layoff is already dangerous for him. Watch to see how he returns. We need to control it with him, but Ten Hag was certain that he would make a difference when his energy was high.
