Manchester United’s Garnacho Apologizes to Ten Hag for Social Media Activity

Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho has issued an apology to manager Erik ten Hag for liking social media posts critical of his substitution during the recent match against Bournemouth.

Garnacho, the 19-year-old winger, was substituted at half-time in the 2-2 draw against Bournemouth on April 13. Following his substitution, Garnacho had liked social media posts criticizing Ten Hag’s decision.

However, Garnacho has since unliked the posts and expressed remorse for his actions. Manager Ten Hag acknowledged Garnacho’s apology and stated that they are moving forward from the incident.

Ten Hag emphasized that Garnacho is a young player who still has much to learn, and the incident serves as a learning experience for him.

Manchester United, who are currently experiencing a winless streak of four Premier League matches, are preparing to face Coventry in an FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.

The social media posts in question criticized Ten Hag’s handling of Garnacho, with one post suggesting that Garnacho was unfairly blamed for the team’s performance.

This is not the first time social media activity has caused issues for Ten Hag. Previously, Jadon Sancho had posted on social media expressing frustration after being dropped from the team. However, Ten Hag clarified that Sancho’s omission was due to poor performances in training rather than any scapegoating.

Despite the previous social media incident involving Sancho, Ten Hag praised the winger for his recent contributions to Borussia Dortmund, where he is currently on loan. Ten Hag noted Sancho’s excellent performance in Dortmund’s Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid and reiterated that Sancho remains a valuable player.
