Erik ten Hag view on Man Utd prodigy is completely different to Bruno Fernandes

Erik ten Hag's opinion of Alejandro Garnacho is rather different to that of Bruno Fernandes – showing the Manchester United youngster is already learning his way.

The 18-year-old Argentina youth international has appeared in each of United's last six Premier League fixtures having missed the previous 12 matches – contributing to three goals across five victories.

That upturn in fortunes comes three months after Fernandes shocked fans with criticism of the youngster's attitude in pre-season, with Ten Hag now full of praise.

Ten Hag said this week: "He’s learnt in the last months about how to play in a team, how to live, how to do the right things in the week, how to have the right attitude on the training ground and you see how he’s acting as a team player and with his individual skills that can make the difference.

"Also for him it’s to keep going in the process. It’s not done. There is a lot to come.

"There is a lot of room for improvement with him but he can help, he can contribute on the highest level already and I’m really happy.

"It’s a bonus for us as a club that you bring in young players and they can come not only into the squad but the team and I think that is a part of our project that has to contribute to our success."

Which comes after Fernandes told BT Sport late last year: "He was good, but he knows that we expect a lot from him.

"Obviously he's still really young, he's doing really well. He was not at his best at the beginning of the season.

"On the tour he didn't have the best attitude that he should have had, and that's why he didn't get his chances until now. He's getting his chances because he's training better, having a different attitude and deserving his chances."

United are in a fine run of form ahead of their trip to take on Crystal Palace at the weekend, winning five league games in a row and sitting just a point behind Manchester City.

Following their win in the Manchester derby, Gary Neville even went as far as saying that his former side will finish above Arsenal this season – but end up second in the table.
