Football fans may have arguably witnessed the goal of the year halfway through the English Premier League. Alejandro Garnacho, the Manchester United winger scored with a remarkable bicycle kick past Jordan Pickford under the Everton bar. This was reminiscent of another bicycle by United legend Wayne Rooney in 2011 against arch-city rivals Manchester City.
And the brilliant goal set the tone for the rest of the game from United’s perspective. Alejandro Garnacho’s goal came in the third minute of the match, the first goal of the game. United would go on to score two more goals before the game ended.
Alejandro Garnacho is a product of Athletico Madrid’s youth system. The 19-year-old has spent most of his youth in the Spanish team’s team youth system. It was his first goal of this season. The leading scorers are Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandez have three goals each for the team. Alejandro Garnacho is not a regular forward for Manchester United. Erik ten Hag, the United manager, said it could be considered the goal of this season.
Alejandro Garnacho Is Being Compared To Players Such As Cristiano Ronaldo
The convincing win boosted by Alejandro Garnacho’s goal places them in the sixth spot in the league standings. And they are on a winning streak, having won their last three games in the EPL. Alejandro Garnacho is considered among the most exciting prospects in soccer worldwide. He has been compared with Cristiano Ronaldo, a 5-time Golden Ball winner. Ronaldo too played for United. Garnacho made his debut for the English team in 2022.
The Argentine has also been compared to another Manchester United legend, Rooney, and the similarity does not end with the bicycle goals they scored so spectacularly 12 years apart. Garnacho also came at around the same age that Rooney came into the team and immediately made a mark.
