Following Manchester United victory over Aston Villa in the Carabao cup Erik Ten Hag has called out one of the youngster

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has issued warning to youngster Alejandro Garnacho after their win against Aston Villa.

The academy player was involved in the second of the Carabao victory against Unai Emery side and also got two assists in the game.

He set up Fernandes when Robin Olsen spilled a cross into his path in the 78th minute, then picked out McTominay with a deep cross from the left in stoppage time.

Garnacho scored his first senior goal in United’s 1-0 win over Real Sociedad last week and it is clear fans want to see more of him, but he was held back by Ten Hag after missing meetings during the club’s pre-season tour, and the boss once again laid down a marker over his attitude.

Despite his contributions in the game the former Ajax manager has warned the youngster on what to do to continue getting his chances at United.

“It was good that he came on and showed that performance and had that impact in the game, to be able to assist, make the dribbles and run behind,” Ten Hag said.

“There are some things he has to improve, for instance when we go long to go for the second balls. He still has things to learn but quite obviously we are happy with his development and he can contribute to the team.

“It depends on his approach, his attitude. When he keeps working then yes, it is possible (for him to play more). He wants to improve every day. He has to do the right things in his lifestyle. He has the capability.”
