ALEJANDRO GARNACHO has liked social media posts blasting Erik ten Hag for subbing him at half-time.

Manchester United boss Ten Hag was accused of running "scared" of "bigger earners" and throwing Garnacho "under a bus" after a 2-2 draw at Bournemouth.

Fans then spotted the Argentina star, 19, reacted to that social media outburst from well-known Red Devils' YouTuber Mark Goldbridge.

One responded on X: "Lol Garnacho liked this. Damn Man Utd is getting cooked."

Ten Hag told Sky Sports after earning a fortunate point: "This is not enough... The truth is we did not deserve more.

"The first goal we were actually well set up but we lose the ball in a bad area and it was a goal.

"There were two or three more occasions where we should have dealt better with the ball.

"Then down the right side they were finding ways to hurt us and there were jobs to be done but it was not always done.

"Then you get problems. Go with your opponent, that is your job. One part is collaboration and the other is discipline."

Goldbridge posted: "Ten Hag subtly blaming Garnacho in the post match press conference...not a good look throwing a 19 year old under the bus who has actually delivered for you this season. But then again he's clearly scared of upsetting the bigger earners."

A fellow Old Trafford supporter replied: "Always scared to blame Rashford."

Another wrote: "He targets whoever puts their heads down. He can't even substitute those 375k players who drops stinkers after stinkers."

But some fans disagreed with Goldbridge's claim that the Red Devils' Dutch manager is too soft on a crop of under-achieving high-earners.

One said: "Are you kidding me? Ten Hag has shown the most faith in Mainoo and Garnacho."

On this occasion, however, full-back Diogo Dalot replaced Garnacho for the second period, with United 2-1 down.

And Mason Mount came on for 18-year-old Kobbie Mainoo on 78 minutes at 2-2.

One fan said: "Let's be honest, Garnacho had a poor 1st half. I was expecting EtH to remove Rashford and move Garna to the left at half-time... but he chose to remove Garna."

And another defended Ten Hag's actions over his whizkid, saying: "He wasn’t blaming him, he just explained what happened in the first half with him."
