‘That is so specific!’: Ten Hag praises 4 Man Utd stars for outstanding display v Hammer

Before Manchester United overcame West Ham in the FA Cup, Erik ten Hag gave Alejandro Garnacho some encouragement and praised three other players.

In the fifth-round meeting between United and the Hammers on Wednesday night at Old Trafford, Said Benrahma’s strike gave the visitors a 1-0 victory.

Prior to Garnacho’s 90th-minute winner, Nayef Aguerd’s own goal had tied the game at 2-2. The extra-time goal by Fred gave the team a 3-1 triumph.

Ten Hag has now spoken about the chat he had with Garnacho before the game and said: ‘I see today another step.

I informed him that the game was approaching. When you first enter the game, you have an impact; however, you now need to make an impression.

It is the next step he needs to take since I think he is capable of doing it. Being brave and fearless are wonderful traits to possess.

One football observer stated, “I don’t think it’s a skill that is that particular, I don’t think there are many players in the world of football who can take players on, who can just out-dribble them and the skill he has.

He is however more adept than that, for example in the finishing. He has a strong engine, is quick, and can run for 90 or 120 minutes without stopping, as well, I can see.

With four goals for United so far this season, the 18-year-old Garnacho has had a breakout campaign under the Dutchman.

In addition to the Argentina U20 international, Ten Hag pointed out three more individuals who helped the FA Cup win over West Ham.

The United boss praised the play of Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia, Marcel Sabitzer, and of course, Victor Garnacho, especially in the second half.

He also said to ITV, “It is never easy after a cup celebration and of course you have to get back to business as usual, after Sunday.

We completed the work assigned to us and managed to prevail. Our toughness. The team’s performance was outstanding.

Marcus Rashford reacts to Alejandro Garnacho performance after Manchester United win

This season, Marcus Rashford has won so many games for Manchester United. It was past time for someone else to take the lead.

Alejandro Garnacho gave his consent. In the 90th minute, with the score still level at 1-1, a chance presented itself. The young player took a touch and curled the ball into the bottom corner.

Fred scored again for United a short while later, giving them a 3-1 victory. Rashford did not add to his 25 goals since he was not required to.

Manchester United’s late comeback ensured them a place in the FA Cup quarterfinals with Fulham coming up next.

After recently won at Wembley, Manchester United is just one victory away from going back there. The FA Cup semifinals take place at the stadium along with the championship game.

In a post on Instagram, Rashford congratulated Alejandro Garnacho and showed his excitement about perhaps going back.

He described the 18-year-old and exclaimed, “What a finale from the child.

Garnacho has so far this season recorded four goals and four assists. He is stepping into his position as a crucial contributor.

The gifted winger was participating for the under-18s at this time last year. He is currently giving an excellent performance at Old Trafford, as we had hoped.

Garnacho’s previous three goals for the first team came on the road, at Sociedad, Fulham, and Elland Road.

He has now scored his first goal for the first team at Old Trafford, and what a way to do it in the final seconds of a cup game at the Stretford End.
