Alejandro Garnacho in bust-up with Galatasaray players not picked up on TV

Following Alejandro Garnacho’s early goal for Manchester United on Wednesday night, a group of Galatasaray players engaged in a heated confrontation with him. However, this incident went unnoticed by TV cameras.

The Red Devils swiftly gained an advantage in Istanbul, with Garnacho finding the net just 11 minutes into the game.

Bruno Fernandes delivered a clever pass to Garnacho, who, with a touch, fired a left-footed shot into the top corner from close range.

In his celebration, Garnacho taunted the home fans with a ‘calm down’ gesture, eliciting loud boos and whistles from the stands.

After a few seconds, he raised a hand to apologize to the displeased Galatasaray fans. Nevertheless, Fernando Muslera was not appeased and, incensed by the teenager’s actions, sprinted 40 yards up the pitch to confront him, drawing several of his teammates into the fray.

During the confrontation, a few objects were thrown from the stands, prompting the referee to consult with both team captains before the game resumed.

Despite the intensity of the moment, things quickly settled between the two teams. Notably, this incident was not captured by TV cameras but was referenced by TNT Sports commentator Darren Fletcher.

Rio Ferdinand, on the other hand, showered praise on Garnacho, singling him out for acclaim after scoring his second goal for United in just four days.

“Garnacho is the real deal, there’s no doubt in my mind,” said Ferdinand as he ran the rule over Garnacho’s latest strike.

“He is the real deal. This kid, ice in his veins. A spectacular goal at the weekend and the importance of this one to silence the crowd in an intimidating environment.”

The Argentine star is presently in outstanding form, having recently netted what many consider one of the greatest goals in Premier League history against Everton last Sunday.

His impeccably executed bicycle kick in the early minutes of the match has been extensively replayed, leaving even Red Devils icon Gary Neville thoroughly impressed by the remarkable quality of the strike.

“I felt it was something I’ve not seen before,” Neville told Sky Sports. “The thing that struck me straight away was the fact he had to move away, he comes in and comes back out, moves his feet quickly and then throws himself in the air.

“I played football at a professional level for a long time, I can’t do that, not just the overhead kick but even getting in the air to be able to make contact with the ball because I’d think I’d break my neck.”
