Garnacho had a memorable day in his young career on Saturday, as he was named to Manchester United’s matchday squad for their Premier League match against Norwich. Interim manager Ralf Rangnick named the 17-year-old to the substitutes bench for the first time.

Despite the fact that he did not play in the 3-2 triumph, the youthful winger has been tipped for big things at Old Trafford. Rangnick noted before the game, “He has been training with us for the last two weeks and he is one of our most promising players.” “He’s only 17 years old, but if he keeps his feet on the ground, he’ll not only be on the bench, but he’ll be playing for this club.”

Garnacho had a front-row seat to see his hero Cristiano Ronaldo score a magnificent hat-trick – his 60th of the season – to give United the three points against the league’s worst team. They were also highly valuable, considering that Tottenham and Arsenal both lost 1-0 to open up the competition for fourth place.

The boy grew up idolizing Ronaldo, and after scoring for United’s Under-18s in a 4-1 win over Everton in February, he even did his characteristic “SIUUU” celebration. As a result, he was overjoyed when Ronaldo presented him with the match ball at the end of the game.

He posted a photo of himself with Ronaldo holding the ball the 37-year-old had given him on Instagram to remember the historic day. “Greatest of all time…” he captioned, alongside emojis of a goat, fire, football, and heart.

Obviously, there were a lot of positive words from his United academy teammates, but there was also one from Aguero. Garnacho, who was born in Madrid and first represented Spain’s juvenile teams, was recently called up to Argentina’s senior squad, where he had the opportunity to practice with Messi – an event that Aguero mentioned in his statement.

“Porque todava no jugaste con el mejor pa @leomessi,” the former Manchester City striker tweeted beneath Garnacho’s Ronaldo photo in Spanish, which translates to “because you have not yet played with Lionel Messi.” Garnacho, who joined United from Atletico Madrid two years ago, is eligible for Argentina due to his Argentine mother’s citizenship, and owes his recent call-up to Argentina’s Under-20s coach, Javier Mascherano.

“They’ve always been really attentive and worried about me since they became interested in me two or three months ago,” he explained. “He [Mascherano] is quite attentive, which I greatly appreciate. I’ve always wanted to be a part of a team with stars of this caliber and learn a lot from them. It’s a dream come true to be able to play on the same squad as some of my boyhood heroes, so I’m going to make the most of it.”
