Garnacho Scores Acrobatic Wonder Goal for Manchester United, Reviving Memories of a Famous Rooney Strike

Alejandro Garnacho’s volley at Goodison Park will be an awards season contender and was likened to volleys from Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Erik ten Hag laughed off comparisons with Alejandro Garnacho and Manchester United greats Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Garnacho struck his first Premier League goal of the season with a remarkable bicycle kick volley to put United ahead against Everton at Goodison Park in the third minute.

The 19-year-old’s strike drew inevitable comparisons with Rooney’s decider in the February 2011 Manchester derby at Old Trafford and Ronaldo’s acrobatic strike for Real Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final win against Juventus in 2018.

Ronaldo mentored Garnacho during their brief time together as teammates at United and the Argentine replicated Ronaldo’s celebration at Goodison.

Likening the teenager, who does not turn 20 until July, to Ronaldo and Rooney drew a withering but lengthy response from Ten Hag.

“Don’t compare, I don’t think it’s right,” Ten Hag stressed. “They all have their own identity. For Garnacho to go that way, he has a lot to come, he has to work very hard and do it on a consistent base. So far, he has not but he definitely has high potential to do some amazing things.

“It is not the first time we see this, we see often glimpses, but if you want to be a player like Rooney, Ronaldo, you have to score 20, 25 goals in the Premier League.

“It’s not easy to get, you have to work very hard and go in ways where it hurts. A lot to come but potential he has.

“It was a fantastic goal. In the season, there are still many games to play but maybe already the goal of the season. Not only the finish, it was the back to the end. But the finish was incredible.”

United’s victory at Goodison Park was their the first by three goals away from home in the Premier League since October 2021 and their first league win by a margin of more than one goal all season.

Despite the scoreline, United only had four attempts on target in a clinical performance where their front three all got on the scoresheet.

The timing of Garnacho’s goal silence a sulfurous crowd at Goodison as Evertonians protested against their 10-point deduction by the Premier League and Ten Hag claimed a fast start was part of United’s plan.

“It was a good performance today,” Ten Hag said. “Start very good, exactly how we planned it, we scored a great goal. Not only the finish – the finish was incredible, fantastic – but also the way we attract them, how we speed up, the switch of play from Victor (Lindelof) to (Marcus) Rashford, the overlap, the cross, so very good.

“But then the first half we were too passive, we were too easygoing, too comfortable, I was not pleased with that part of the game and Everton created also some chances, but second half we were proactive and it was a very good performance and we scored two good goals.

“”Our plan went well but to get that is not so easy as to plan it. But the players were very confident, very composed, attract the opponent, got the speed up and well done from the team.”
