Former MU striker Carlos Tevez has praised his young compatriot Alejandro Garnacho after his explosive campaign at Old Trafford.
Alejandro Garnacho has been outstanding under coach Erik ten Hag this season, making 29 appearances in all competitions and scoring four goals and providing four assists. Garnacho’s strong form earned him a call-up to the Argentina national team in March, although he later withdrew from the squad due to injury and is still awaiting his South American debut.
The contributions of the player born in 2004 helped him to be extended by MU until 2028, the Red Devils consider Garnacho as the future of the club. Carlos Tevez, who spent two years at United, winning the Premier League in both seasons as well as the Champions League, was impressed with Garnacho.
Speaking to TyC Sports, Tevez said: “Garnacho is very good. To play for Manchester United you have to be good! He is playing for one of the top three clubs in the world. Garnacho is improving a lot, he has a bright future. I see this boy can become the future of MU, I am very happy to see him extend his contract with the Red Devils.”
Tevez is also a fan of another young Argentinian currently playing in the Premier League, 18-year-old Brighton striker Facundo Buonanotte. The youngster was in fact coached by Tevez at Rosario Central before moving to Brighton in January this year.
Tevez continued: “Buonanotte is a good player. If he continues to develop in the right way, he can become a top player in the future.”
