Alejandro Garnacho liked two posts on social media that criticised manager Erik ten Hag in the wake of Manchester United's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.

The 19-year-old was withdrawn at half-time of the game, with Ten Hag later singling Garnacho's performance out after the game by admitting he felt the team needed more quality down the right wing.

United fan and broadcaster Mark Goldbridge took to X after the match to criticise Ten Hag's decision to call out Garnacho, who is behind only Bruno Fernandes on United's goals and assists charts, and claim that the United boss was "scared of upsetting the bigger earners" in the squad.

Garnacho was seen liking both posts before eventually removing his reaction.

This is not the first time Garnacho has liked posts involving Ten Hag's decision to substitute him. Earlier this month, he liked a post questioning his withdrawal from the game against Chelsea, and that reaction remains active at the time of writing.

Ten Hag repeatedly highlighted shortcomings on United's right side after the game before admitting he substituted Garnacho to "repair" his side.

"That [Dominic] Solanke was dropping in, we didn't anticipate, something to do with our organisation, that is something I point to, you need some coaching there then you stop it at the source," he explained.

"In the second phase it was too easy, on the right side there was a big gap and Kluivert should never get that ball there but if [he does] then we have to close it, that's clear and obvious.

"I think we had to repair over that right side. We didn't play well, the spaces were there in possession, we had to bring a sub there.

"Garnacho was not training during the week, only yesterday, we thought bring some energy, bring some more quality, quality in the sense of co-operation, togetherness over that right side."
