Alejandro Garnacho returned to the MU squad and was on the list of matches against West Ham, only to regret that he was not given the opportunity by coach Erik ten Hag.
Speaking before the match against West Ham, coach Erik ten Hag said Alejandro Garnacho has the opportunity to return to play after nearly two months out with an ankle injury. “Garnacho could be in the game, but we’ll have to wait and see,” he said. In this season, we always bounce back after every defeat. I believe in the players, we have to keep doing that.”
This is good news for MU after they have suffered many injuries in the last part of this season. And as expected, the young Argentinian was on the roster against West Ham, but he sat on the bench.
Although MU was 1-0 down and needed a goal, Garnacho was not given a chance from the bench. Explaining about not putting Garnacho on the field, coach Ten Hag said: “Garnacho has the ability to play. But we also have other options with Martial, Jadon Sancho, Sabitzer.”
“I have to make the changes that I think are best for the team. In such a game I think Martial, Jadon Sancho, Sabitzer are reasonable options from the bench. We worked hard, but it was disappointing that the team couldn’t score.”
The mistake of goalkeeper David de Gea caused MU to lose 0-1 to West Ham, this result he affected MU’s 4th place, but they let Liverpool shorten the gap to 1 point. Although they played less than 1 game, if the Red Devils continue to disappoint they can completely fall out of the Top 4.
