UEL: I’m impressed, he’s exciting – Scholes hails Man United’s 18-year-old new Ronaldo

 


Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has compared 18-year-old Alejandro Garnacho to a ‘young Cristiano Ronaldo’ after the Argentine made his full debut for the Red Devils against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League on Thursday.

Manchester United dominated the game at Old Trafford and clinched a routine 3-0 win, with goals from Diogo Dalot, Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manager, Erik ten Hag handed the 18-year-old his first senior start in the Europa League.

And the youngster grasped the opportunity with both hands to earn rave reviews from Scholes.

Scholes told BT Sport: “This crowd loves entertainment and this lad was really entertaining, almost like a young Cristiano.

“I was impressed because some wingers can only go one way but he could do both which makes him so unpredictable.

“I thought his performance was really exciting for an 18-year-old kid, he really is one for the future.”
