Alejandro Garnacho sends rallying cry with Sheriff Tiraspol tie set to go ahead
The Argentine international was a 70th minute substitute at Old Trafford, but could not prevent United falling to a 1-0 loss, with a suspect penalty decision given against the side.
This was Garnacho’s first appearance in the Europa League, and he is looking forward to another opportunity as the group stages progress.
He was joined by Charlie McNeill, who came off the bench to make his professional debut.
Alejandro Garnacho sends rallying cry
United’s unwelcome defeat leaves the Red Devils with an uphill task, although there is plenty of opportunity left to pick up points.
Garnacho was keen to remind United fans of this, sending a rallying cry, pointing out that there are five games remaining.
Even if United can pick up maximum points from the next four, then qualification may be sealed in advance of the final match away at Real Sociedad.
