What angry Alejandro Garnacho was spotted doing towards the bench during the first-half of Man United vs Brighton – journalist

Manchester United defeated Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at the Amex on Sunday afternoon, with Diogo Dalot and Rasmus Hojlund the goalscorers. 

Despite that, United have finished the campaign in eighth, missing out on qualification to any form of European football.

They still have a chance to compete in the Europa League next season, though, if they defeat Manchester City in the FA Cup final at the end of the month.

They’ll have to be at their very best to have any joy in that, though, and Erik ten Hag may have to have a little word with Alejandro Garnacho about one thing he did during the first half.

Alejandro Garnacho angry at Man United’s defending

Mail Sport journalist Nathan Salt took to X in the first-half as he spotted Garnacho gesturing to the bench in frustration after Joao Pedro split open the United defence.

“A frustrated Alejandro Garnacho has just gestured to the bench to ask what the hell is going on after Joao Pedro – again – cut through United with ease. Plenty of fans asking the same thing,” Salt wrote.

Whilst it’s an understandable reaction, as a professional, Garnacho must work on his body language and cut this element of his game out. After all, winning football matches takes a collective effort, so it can’t be totally pinned on the defence.

Erik ten Hag won’t be pleased

Ten Hag already dealt with an incident a couple of weeks ago when the Spaniard liked posts on social media questioning his substitution.

Admittedly, this sort of behaviour is to be expected with a young player, so the senior members of the dressing room just need to have a quiet word.

It’s certainly not a major problem by any means but it won’t contribute towards a harmonious culture around the club – which seems to have been a problem for much of the season.

The talent is there, and so too is the endeavour and hunger, so this is just a small thing for Garnacho to work on over the summer.
