Garnacho would be left without the Under 20 World Cup: the Manchester United coach warned that he does not intend to give it up


Erik Ten Hag was asked if he contemplates the striker traveling to Argentina to play the tournament and he was forceful.

Despite the expectation generated by


becoming the venue for the

Under 20 World Cup

, not all of it is good news for the youth team.

In addition to the Argentine soccer boys, the chance to see the so-called " Europibes" 

playing games in our country

was very exciting .

However, everything seems to indicate that

Alejandro Garnacho

, the best known of them, will not be part of the game.

The Manchester United jewel would not be loaned out by his club to be available to

Javier Mascherano

during international competition.

This was implied by the coach of the English club, 

Erik Ten Hag

, during a press conference.


No, the truth is that I don't see it

," said the DT of Dutch origin forcefully after his team's draw against Tottenham, without adding another detail to his decision for not allowing the left winger to come to Argentina .

Possibly the player who generated the greatest expectation of seeing him in the albiceleste shirt was Garnacho, the youth player who, despite being born in Spain, chose to play for Argentina thanks to the fact that his mother is from our country.

Despite Manchester United's refusal, Garnacho's position is clear: he wants to play in the U-20 World Cup at all costs

and wants to do everything possible to convince his coach.

Even Mascherano, coach of the youth team, and




, president of the AFA, are taking steps to get their clubs to grant the necessary permits.

However, it seems that the "Garnacho plan" so that the player can receive Argentine affection once and for all is becoming difficult to carry out.

The hardness that Ten Hag expressed in a press conference seems to say everything about it.

If it is remembered that in the last tour of the Garnacho Selection he could not come to the country due to suffering an injury,

this would be the second consecutive time that the kid would miss the chance to debut in Argentina with the world champion jersey

Meanwhile, the young promise in Europe continues to recover from the talofibular ligament sprain in his right ankle that he suffered on March 12 in the 0-0 against Southampton.

Precisely, Ten Hag stated that the boy's return is close.


We will see when he will be available to coach normally and when he can return to play games

", declared the coach.

The situation of the rest of the Europibes


the certainty that all the local soccer youth players called up by Mascherano will be available to play in the World Cup, the


's gaze is set on the European continent, which is why he is visiting each of the teams from the Old Continent in which young Argentines perform.

Apart from the Garnacho case, the one who has the least chance of joining the delegation is

Nico Paz

, the Real Madrid Castilla midfielder, who participated in the last South American.

His team is playing for promotion in what is the final stretch of the season and they do not want to give up one of his best players.

It seems that the same path is followed by

Facundo Buonanotte

, the former Rosario Central currently present in Brighton in England.

His team does not want to give him up in full competition either and prefers to continue counting on him during training.

Just last weekend he started and scored his first goal in his team's 3-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League.

This is the case of

From next May 20, the
