Alejandro Garnacho bags pair of Toulon Tournament awards, before drawing ire of Man United fans for Salah post

12 June 2022 0 By Total Football News


The name of Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho has taken its place front and centre in the headlines on Sunday evening, for altogether contrasting reasons.

First up, the 17-year-old bagged himself not one, but two individual prizes.

Garnacho spent the last couple of weeks plying his trade for Argentina’s U20s, at the historic Toulon Tournament in France.

And the midfield prodigy, despite his country’s lacklustre overall showing, went on to thoroughly impress, racking up four goals and an assist across his four appearances.

In turn, it should come as little surprise to hear of Garnacho, on Sunday, being named the Revelation of the Tournament in the south of France:

Not only that, but the Red Devils sensation has too bagged the award for Goal of the Tournament, owing to the following set-piece special versus France last weekend:

‘Why post this?’

As alluded to above, though, Garnacho’s evening has since taken something of a turn for the worse.

Taking to his official Instagram account a short time ago, the teenage midfielder unveiled a photo of himself alongside none other than Mohamed Salah, accompanied by a loveheart emoji:

And to say that the ensuing reaction on the part of the Manchester United fanbase has proven one of disapproval would be putting it lightly.

Taking to social media in their droves, the Red Devils faithful have made clear their frustration with Garnacho’s actions, evidently of the opinion that Salah’s status as a Liverpool icon means that one of the club’s finest up-and-coming talents should steer clear of posts featuring the Egyptian international:
