Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho has been rattling Barcelona yet again on social media. The Catalan giants were enraged after the 18-year-old appeared to insult Pedri following a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford in February. And his newest misbehavior may result in a sharp reprimand from Erik ten Hag, as the child seeks to avoid establishing a poor reputation for himself.
Garnacho couldn’t help but make fun of Pedri when United defeated Barcelona 2-1 in February, with Fred and Antony scoring.
The Argentine imitated the Spain international’s binoculars goal celebration, infuriating the Catalan giants.
And now Garnacho has done it again.
The Manchester United teenager added salt to Barcelona’s wounds on Instagram shortly after their 4-0 Copa del Rey loss to Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
On a post by Los Blancos sensation Vinicius Jr., Garnacho replied ‘normal,’ accompanied by laughing emojis.
And this has generated a backlash, with many fans praising the teen for his antics and expressing their displeasure with his tweet.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having a little fun on social media. Especially if you’re an adolescent.
However, Garnacho is making unneeded headlines, and Ten Hag would be well to interfere to ensure the United star does not become a target on his back.
Ten Hag was furious with the forward at the start of the season after he failed to show up for the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.
Garnacho also needs a talk about his demeanor in training, as the youngster was occasionally seen roaming around Carrington with his laces unfastened.
There was also the vaping incident last month.
Garnacho posted a photo of himself watching United’s 3-1 FA Cup win over Fulham after missing the game due to injury.
He posted a photo of his feet up on the sofa, and followers noticed a vape before the United forward removed the post and re-uploaded it with the object removed.
According to Garnacho, the vaporizer belonged to a family member.
However, it still caused a minor storm, and by erasing the image, he appeared to be aware that he could be in hot water.
Garnacho, on the other hand, needs to keep his feet on the ground because he has yet to genuinely become a footballing superstar.
Meanwhile, Barcelona star Ronald Araujo chastised Garnacho for his Pedri antics last month.
When asked if the United star’s actions irritated him, he replied, “Yes.” Everyone is as they are, but it should not have been possible to post something like that at the time.
“I respect everyone, and I believe that humility should come first.” Everyone is free to express themselves as they want, but I like to keep a quiet profile and then demonstrate what I can accomplish on the pitch.
“This is football, he’s young, and there’s a long way to go.” You must continue with dignity and calm.”
Garnacho is unlikely to play when Manchester United meets Everton on Saturday. (12.30pm).
They’ve already beaten the Toffees twice this season, winning the Premier League and the FA Cup.
