Alejandro Garnacho has praised Kyle Walker-Peters for his message of encouragement after hobbling off in Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton on Saturday.

Garnacho was brought in the second half of United’s match against Southampton on Sunday as the club looked for a winning goal. His cameo, however, lasted only 18 minutes before he was withdrawn by Ten Hag due to an injury sustained by Walker-Peters’ challenge.

Following the tackle, the Argentina youth international was plainly in pain. Ten Hag stated in his post-match press conference that the injury was “not too terrible,” while reports in Argentina have subsequently alleged that the injury may be worse than initially thought.

After Garnacho was pictured leaving Old Trafford on crutches, Walker-Peters took to social media to express his concern, writing: “It would never be my intention to injure a fellow professional. I wish you a swift recovery and hope to see you back in action soon.”

The United youngster has subsequently responded to the letter, praising the Saints right-back for his words of encouragement. “It’s about more than football,” he wrote. “Thank you for the message, brother; this is all part of football.”

United has not yet commented on the severity or form of the injury. Ten Hag’s men travel to Seville this week for the second leg of their Europa League tie against Real Betis, with the Reds leading the first leg 4-1 at Old Trafford.

Then comes an FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham before the international break, which puts domestic football on hold for two weeks. Ten Hag’s men will next begin their season against fellow Champions League contenders Newcastle.
