Alejandro Garnacho ‘unlikes’ social media posts criticising Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag

Alejandro Garnacho, a forward for Manchester United, has reversed his choice to “like” social media posts that criticize manager Erik ten Hag.

Garnacho, who was replaced at halftime during Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, ‘liked’ two tweets that were made on the social networking site X, which was formerly known as Twitter. The way the Argentine responded to the posts indicated that he agreed with the publisher’s assessment of the United manager.

Mark Goldbridge, a well-known United supporter on YouTube, wrote both posts. Garnacho questioned Ten Hag’s choice to replace him during halftime in the first post that he “liked.”

Goldbridge posted: “Garnacho has been one of our best players this season. Poor first half but taking him off at half-time and holding him up as the problem is a joke. Many have done much worse week in week out and are still out there.”

The United Stand presenter then added a second post, saying: “Ten Hag subtly blaming Garnacho in the post-match press conference… not a good look throwing a 19-year-old under the bus who has actually delivered for you this season. But then again he’s clearly scared of upsetting the bigger earners.”

Garnacho’s choice to “like” both tweets went viral right away and prompted a lot of inquiries from United supporters. Since then, the young person has decided to ‘dislike’ them instead than changing his mind.

Though in a different context, Jadon Sancho criticized Ten Hag on social media in September after the Reds’ 3-1 loss to Arsenal on that date. After being left out of the matchday squad, Sancho, who is now on loan at Borussia Dortmund, accused the manager of United of lying.

Ten Hag revealed, following the defeat at the Emirates Stadium, that Sancho had been left out of the squad due to his performance levels in training. Sancho went on the attack, posting a statement on X saying: “Please don’t believe everything you read. I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week. I believe there are other reasons for this matter which I won’t go into, I’ve been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair!

“All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to the team. I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge. I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what!”

Sancho was banished from the first-team squad and was sent out on loan in January, rejoining Dortmund. Saturday’s draw with Bournemouth, consequently, marked a 30th consecutive start in United colours for Garnacho.
