Manchester United‘s preseason workouts have begun, and some youth players have been photographed sporting new squad numbers.
At least 15 senior players attended Monday’s training session at Carrington, while those who were on international duty received extra time off.
After a poor 2021–2022 season, Erik ten Hag will try to make this team’s preseason the toughest one yet before the Premier League season begins in early August.
Alejandro Garnacho might be an exception at Carrington because he participated in a number of games for Argentina’s U20 team throughout the summer, demonstrating how eager he is to win over the new manager.
Alvaro Fernandez was sighted with 42 instead of 74, according to the Manchester Evening News, while the gifted youngster wore the number 49 at practice on Monday after donning 75 the year before.
Matej Kovar, who was given the number 51 the previous season, has moved up to the number 40.
Nevertheless, United hasn’t formally announced the composition of its roster, so there may be other adjustments before the start of the new campaign.
Even though Garnacho is only 17 years old, we firmly anticipate that this season he will play a larger role for the first team.
Is it too soon for Garnacho to serve as Cristiano Ronaldo‘s backup in the upcoming campaign?
