This isn’t the first big opportunity Garnacho has passed up this season, leaving fans frustrated…
Garnacho has missed one-on-ones on multiple occasions, prompting fans to react on X.
“For now, Garnacho is much better when coming on in the 60th minute and running direct against tired legs rather than playing the entire 90 minutes,” one fan explained. He needs to be more clinical and make better decisions in 1v1 situations. These chances are far too important for us right now.”
Another person suggested ways for the 19-year-old to improve: “The next stage of development for Garnacho is to learn how to shoot.”
While a third substituted Marcus Rashford, both looked unconvincing in front of goal.
“Both Rashford and Garnacho BCM catalogue this season is tallying up — not enough conviction, too much overthinking.”
