Alejandro Garnacho starts pre-season with Manchester United first team


Alejandro Garnacho has started pre-season with Manchester United’s first team.

Garnacho has started the season with the first team after having played twice for them last season. The 17 year old Argentine was named as the Young Player of the Year for 2021-2022, a year where he also won the Youth FA Cup.

Manchester United has posted pictures and videos of the players beginning pre-season with Garnacho shown with the team. This is the first time he would start pre-season with them.

He was part of the preliminary Argentina national team list where he trained with Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and the team. While he did not play for the senior team, he did play for Javier Mascherano’s Argentina U20 team at the Toulon youth tournament where he was named as the revelation of the tournament.


  1. Fantastic news.. but now I’ll be forced to watch a team that I had ZERO interest in watching in PL…. I think MU is the most boring top5 team in PL..perhaps Garnacho can change that…

  2. what a talent argentina is upcoming ezequiel zeballas, matias soule, gernacho, dario sarmiento, alan velasco and more … i’m little bit disappointed with luka romero he has not developed as compare to his initial hype, there is plenty others young talent in argentine league , i don’t understand why this young talent are not valued well compare to brazilian .. what a great number of talent that argentina has, i think all those youngster should give experience with national team practice ground , they will grow up hugely if they are monitored well

    • Our problem is the same in the last 10-15 years with our youth. Most of the youth with wonderkid potential are attacking minded players: Garnacho, Soule, Luka, Sarmiento, Velasco, Zeballos, Paz, etc. In defense we produce no one.

      It seems like all the new kids who start to play futbol, everyone wanna play attackers or wingers. No one wanna be defenders or goalie. Especially there is a stereotype around the world that Argentina defenders/goalies are normally not that good compared to Brazilians or French or German. It is easier to be successful in Europe if you are an Argentine attacker than defender/goalie.

      • I rather think it is the lack of role models in the defense to inspire Argentina youths to become the next XXX. Argentina had a few mentionable defenders in recent history but no superstars. On the contrary, they have plenty of attacking role models with the likes of Maradona, Messi, Batistuta, DeMaria, Riquelme etc.

        • @rehman what about pasarella, ayala, samuel, zanetti, Mascherano etc. Surely Argentina never had any dearth of defensive superstars also. Romero and lisandro will be superstars in near future. Let Argentina win the wc all scenarios will be changed. Mark my words. We have great defenders for next 10 years thn the some youngsters will emerge surely. Defenders r late bloomers anyway

          • Pasarella was way back and Ayala, Samuel, Mascherano were good defenders but not World icons. Zanetti IMO was a rank higher but for some reason he was never given the respect or credit to his level at least by some in Argentina.

    • what has he done any better than the likes of zeballos or Farias to be considered in argentina squad for the world least they are playing 1st team football in a copa libertadores campain

      • Tell him,this guy lives in a fantasy world,
        Kid hasn’t even made his senior debut.
        Same guy that’s asking for him only saw him a handful of time

        • i doubt he saw him in one full game i am sure of it ,where would he see him i didn’t.i have seen zeballos he is very good but he is not reeady for the world cup. to be honest i don’t think garnacho will choose Argentina.

      • Because he is better than both zeballos and farias. Im hoping i didn’t tell he will surely be selected. This kid is exciting. Let’s hope he gets enough minutes this season in manu senior team so that scaloni considers him for the wc
