Alejandro Garnacho’s reaction when Erik ten Hag publicly chastised him
Erik ten Hag manages Manchester United star Alejandro Garnacho at Old Trafford Manchester United star Alejandro Garnacho ‘didn’t sulk’ after criticism from Erik ten Hag earlier this season. Following the arrival of the 52-year-old, the Argentine had to be patient, first struggling for game time. However, he is now an important player at Old Trafford, and expectations are strong that he will improve further in the future.
Ten Hag has imposed his authority on United since taking over as manager in the summer, beating out Mauricio Pochettino to the job.
And the Red Devils are no longer the same team that struggled under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick last season.
Garnacho is one player who has emerged as a crucial figure throughout the campaign. However, he had to be patient at first.
- Manchester United’s stance on acquiring Marco Reus as the transfer window nears its close.
- Oleksandr Zinchenko issues a caution to Manchester City supporters after losing his huff with former teammates.
- Comparison of Manchester City’s wage bill with Manchester United and Liverpool FC supports Pep Guardiola’s argument.
- Cody Gakpo desires a Liverpool ‘accident’ and addresses a position shift in play following his transfer.
- ‘Blue is my favorite color,’ says Chelsea player despite reports he could leave the club this month.
It’s no secret that he struggled to win the Ten Hag round at first, with the forward missing two team meetings, much to his manager’s chagrin.
According to the Daily Mail, he was also instructed to ‘pull his socks up’ after arriving at training looking ‘disheveled,’ which did not go unnoticed.
But, to his credit, Garnacho ‘didn’t sulk,’ instead knuckling down behind the scenes.
He has since progressed to become an important player. He has now gone on to become an important player for United, consistently excelling out wide regardless of his teammates.
The report also goes into detail about other parts of life at Carrington that Ten Hag has changed in his quest to restore Old Trafford’s glory days.
Back in the summer, he imposed a stringent dress code, requiring United players to wear only trainers and never sliders.
Players rarely stayed at the Lowry Hotel before matches under Ten Hag’s supervision.
Under Jose Mourinho, who lived there during his tenure as manager, they typically did, with the Red Devils once arriving late for a home game against Juventus.
Ten Hag, on the other hand, has faith in his players and allows them to arrive at their own conclusions. Ten Hag, on the other hand, has faith in his players and permits them to come four hours before kickoff, just like himself.
The Dutchman directed United to improve various aspects of living at Carrington, such as having the grass trimmed to his exact specifications.
The complex also received a £200,000 makeover, which included tiered seating and a £100,000 television.
And there’s no denying United are better under his leadership these days, with Manchester City up next in the derby.
Pep Guardiola has stated that he is exploring some ‘crazy’ ideas in order to lead his team to victory ahead of that match.
Ten Hag, on the other hand, dismissed his counterpart’s remarks, saying, “I don’t care about that, regarding his thoughts.
“But he did it more often and we’re prepared for that, if he does various things. We have football concepts and rules.”
“What does it mean to be brave?” he asked. It’s always a style of play, in possession, giving each other choices, making the proper decisions, going forward when possible, defending and being on the front foot, being aggressive.” That is what it is to be courageous. Act as a team in order to have the same ideals in any situation. That implies boldness.
When asked if United is ready to take on City, he responded: “We’ll see what happens tomorrow.
“Of course, if you want to win trophies, you have to compete against the best, and City are the greatest, so we’re excited to challenge them.”
