Alejandro Garnacho wins double award

The Manchester United youngster won two awards for his performances, report Argentine outlet Pagina 12.

Garnacho won ‘revelation of the tournament’ for the best player, and ‘goal of the tournament’ for a free-kick he scored against eventual winners France.

The teenager’s performances were also praised by AS Argentina, who wrote: “Throughout the competition, the Manchester United jewel displayed a leadership with and without the ball on the pitch. He was undoubtedly the Albiceleste leader.

“Garnacho’s numbers in the Maurice Revello Tournament are outstanding with four goals and one assist in the four games played. In addition, he participated in five of the seven goals scored by the Argentine National Team.”

It’s worth noting how at just 17, Garnacho was still one of the younger players at the tournament too, playing in the Argentina under-20 team for the first time in a friendly match back in March.

His performances showed why he has already been called up into the Argentina senior squad, and more caps could follow.

Garnacho will get a short break, a well deserved one, before returning to Manchester United for pre-season.

He will be full of confidence after his latest international exploits, and this could help him hit the ground running under Erik ten Hag.
