Alejandro Garnacho had to improve his attitude to earn a chance at Manchester United, says Bruno Fernandes

The 18-year-old winger scored his first goal for the club against Real Sociedad in the Europa League in his second start under Erik ten Hag.

According to Fernandes, Garnacho would have been in the United squad earlier if he hadn’t shown a bad attitude during pre-season.

He told BT Sport: “He was good but he knows we expect a lot from him. He’s still very young, he’s doing very well.

“At the start of the season, he was not in his best shape. On the [pre-season] tour, he didn’t have the best attitude. That’s why he hasn’t had a chance so far.

“He has his chances because he trains better, he has the right attitude.”

Former United star Paul Scholes has claimed a summer call-up from the Argentina national team alongside Lionel Messi could have disrupted Garnacho’s mentality.

“He was obviously a little big for his boots in the summer, maybe a little over his station,” Scholes said.

“I think he left with Argentina, playing with Messi. Maybe he was thinking of coming back to the team but he’s a young boy, he’s going to learn.

“His attitude has changed and we see the benefits. He is a very high level young player with a long way to go. He was really good last week, scored a really good goal tonight. Looks like he got over it. »
