At the same point in his Manchester United career, Alejandro Garnacho claimed to be “ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Remarkably, Alejandro Garnacho has been informed that, at the same point in his Manchester United career, he is “ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.”

On Boxing Day, Man United defeated Unai Emery’s Aston Villa 3-2 at Old Trafford thanks in large part to Garnacho’s performance.

While Marcus Rashford appeared dangerous on the left wing, the Argentinean winger produced on the ring wing.

After rounding fellow countryman Emiliano Martínez, he pulled one back and tapped home from Rashford’s feed to square the score.

To make it 3-2, Rasmus Hojlund scored his first Premier League goal since his high-profile summer transfer. After his heroics, he delivered an outstanding post-match interview.

Garnacho’s incredible brace earned him the title of “Player of the Match,” of course, and Samuel Luckhurst said that the 19-year-old is “ahead of where Ronaldo was at the same stage” at Manchester United.

Luckhurst noted how important the young player was to the squad, pointing out how many starts both players had at the same age.

“Cristiano Ronaldo had the longest run of starts at Manchester United as a 19-year-old, with eight, and the eighth came on his 20th birthday,” the author stated. Alejandro Garnacho has started the last 13 games for United.”

Luckhurst went on to say: “The United supporters fed off Garnacho’s enterprise and emotion as they recorded another 3-2 comeback to add to the vintages of 2002 and 2012 at Villa Park.”

The reporter also commended Erik ten Hag for his “sensible” handling of the situation, saying that he refused to give Garnacho the famous No. 7 shirt when it became available after Ronaldo left. Mason Mount, who arrived in the summer, was given the shirt once he was connected to it.

Having played 25 games in all competitions, Garnacho already has five goals this season, matching his total from the previous campaign.

He’ll probably continue to start for Manchester United against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
