Man Utd starlet Alejandro Garnacho shows off incredible new leg tattoo inspired by favourite cartoon as kid


MANCHESTER UNITED academy star Alejandro Garnacho has shown off an incredible new leg tattoo inspired by his favourite childhood cartoon.

The 18-year-old is on the fringes of the Red Devils first-team having impressed in the youth ranks.

Garnacho has five senior appearances to his name and has also trained with the Argentine squad alongside Lionel Messi.

And ahead of a potentially glittering career, Garnacho has some cool new ink on his leg which could inspire his fans to follow suit.

Garnacho has covered his lower leg with a tattoo of his favourite childhood football cartoon, Captain Tsubasa.

The plot focuses on Tsubasa’s relationship with his friends, rivalries with his opponents, training, and the outcome of each football match.

The football themed tattoo adds to the ones covering his arms, which feature Prison Break characters, roses, a tiger and the face of a woman.

Garnacho has made three appearances for United this season, with his most recent coming in the 2-0 Europa League win over Sheriff.

He does have a Premier League appearance to his name this term.

However, he has spent most of his time on the bench, failing to come on in four games.

Garnacho has worked with arguably the top two footballers of all time in Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, both are his “idols” and he could learn a lot from them, which would benefit United.

The youngster has been seen getting advice from United team-mate Ronaldo, 37, who handed him his hat-trick match ball from the game against Norwich last season.

Garnacho is so impressive, that some former United players are calling for him to be handed more minutes.

Former United defender Paul Parker is keen to see more of the “tenacious” winger.

Parker told BeMyBet: “I think really you have to look at what you got within the squad, there’s a younger player, Alejandro Garnacho.

“Everyone was kind of talking about him in the pre-season.

“Garnacho [is] tenacious… a lot of Argentinians are playing with a fire in their belly and are a bit fiery, and he’s got a competitive edge.”
