Alejandro Garnacho unfollows Spanish FA, follows Argentina on Instagram


Alejandro Garnacho of Manchester United has unfollowed the Spanish FA and followed the Argentina FA on Instagram.

Garnacho is presently with the Argentina national team and trained with the team on Wednesday. He did represent Spain at youth level as he was born in Madrid but his mother is Argentine. And his social media account could give an indication on his national team allegiance.

The 17 year old has unfollowed the Spanish FA and removed any mention of them on his account. He has followed the Argentina FA and created a story highlights titled “national team” with images of himself with the team. He was part of an initiation on Wednesday where he had to sing in front of the Argentina national team.


  1. Out of all of the youngsters, Garnacho is the most difficult to get. I mean he is basically a Spaniard already. Only his mother is an Argentine. I am not worried with others like Soule, Romero, or Carboni brothers or Paz or Geralnik. They are 100% Argentine for sure, but I don’t think Spain will let Garnacho go just like that.

    So any news that Garnacho choosing Argentina in social media is very good news to me.

    I don’t remember when the last time Argentina being that serious calling up super young players and think of them highly. Maybe we have to go back to Messi/Aguero era where both of them were already part of the national team being below 19. Others like Almada, Barco, Gaich, were never part of the senior team really. Julian Alvarez made it but only after he turned 22 or something.

    Hope Garnacho, Luka, and Soule all will be loanes out somewhere next year if their clubs still can’t promise them first team futbol.

  2. Argentina needs a wing player like Garnecho. Especially on the left side. If such a player can be used, it will be better for Argentina’s attack.

  3. Scaloni (AFA) called Garnacho more on the intentions to block him join Spain. He will get a minute to play in the next two games. Although he hasn’t made his Man Utd debut yet, but catch the eyes of Arg and Spain radar. Hard work reaps rewards.
