Alejandro Garnacho has signed a new five -year contract at Manchester United on Friday after an impressive innovative season with the first team this campaign.
Alejandro Garnacho insisted that he will continue to work hard after signing a new agreement with Manchester United in the middle of his impressive innovative campaign.
Although he has lost the last seven weeks with an ankle injury, the Argentine ace has still enjoyed a productive campaign under Erik Ten Hag this term. Garnacho recorded four goals and five assists in 29 appearances for the first United team, also recording two contributions of goals in his two matches of EFL trophies this season.
The 18 year old – who signed a new contract until 2028 – was absent since he came out injured in the goalless draw with Southampton in February. However, he returned to training with the team at Carrington on Friday and is preparing to make his return for the Reds.
The winger also says his first United goals and League Cup win made his first season with the first team “special”.
Discussing his breakthrough season with the club’s media, Garnacho said: “It’s been a good season for me. I scored my first goals, helped the team with my first trophy. It’s been a special year, but it’s only a start. We have to keep working, we still have work to do.”
The striker, who made his debut just 12 months before signing his new contract on Friday, was keen to express his delight at having extended his spell at United. He also sent out a message to Reds fans for their continued support and motivation.
He added: “It’s a great day for me and my family. And I’ve worked a lot for this moment. First of all, I would like to thank the coach for giving me the opportunity. And of course my family, all the coaches at the Academy and everyone who has helped me so much. I wouldn’t be here to sign this new contract without their support.
“I want to thank all the Manchester United fans for this incredible support,” continued Garnacho. “Hearing them say my name means a lot to me. And I want to tell them that I give 100% every day for the team and to make the fans happy.”
The teenager could potentially play a role for the Reds in their Premier League clash with Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday.
