Alejandro Garnacho breaks record previously held by George Best

Alejandro Garnacho has set a new record that was previously set by Manchester United legend George Best. 

The Argentinian made his senior debut only last week and seven days later has netted his first goal for the club against Real Sociedad.

Despite the win, Erik ten Hag and the players will be struggling to focus on the positives as by only scoring one goal on the night, they are forced to compete in the Europa League Round of 16 play-off stage.

They will face a side that has been demoted from the Champions League.

However, Garnacho is likely on cloud nine right now; scoring his first goal in a European match that was assisted by Cristiano Ronaldo – a five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Garnacho becomes United’s youngest non-English scorer in Europe

The game-winning goal made Garnacho the youngest non-English goalscorer in Europe for the Red Devils since George Best set the record. And it’s some record to overtake, as the Belfast-born attacker is regarded as one of the best players in world football.

He played a monumental part in making history with United and helping them become the most successful club in England.
