Manchester United wonder kid Alejandro Garnacho will miss several upcoming games due to an ankle injury.
In the recent Premier League clash against Southampton, a scissor tackle from Kyle Walker-Peters left Garnacho in serious pain.
The 18-year-old has now provided an update about his injury on Instagram.
He wrote (via ManUtd.com): “It is difficult to put into words how I’m feeling right now.”
“Unfortunately, I will not be able to help my team and teammates in the upcoming games, in what is a very important part of the season for us at Manchester United.
“I am disappointed to also miss the opportunity to be with my teammates of the Argentina national team, in what would have been a great and proud moment for me and my family.
“This is part of football and our profession.
“However, I am already focused on my recovery. God has taught me to never give up and I will make sure I am back stronger than ever!”
Alejandro Garnacho’s injury is a big concern for Man United
The young winger has been a great attacking option from the bench for Erik ten Hag.
Whenever the team needs a goal or more creativity, Ten Hag has unleashed Garnacho to attack through the left flank.
His breakneck pace and direct style of play have caused huge problems for opponents. He also helps the team stretch the defensive line which creates gaps in the centre.
His absence is a setback for United as they head into the crucial part of the season.
Sadly for Garnacho, he will also miss the chance to represent Argentina this month. It was a glorious opportunity for him to earn his first-ever international cap.
The winger has shown that he has the qualities to be a world-beater. His international debut is not too far away if he continues to perform and develop as he has done this season.
Man United next face Real Betis in the Europa League before hosting Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final.
