Alejandro Garnacho’s brother, Roberto, confirmed the young Manchester United star’s new shirt number when posting a photo on his personal page.
Garnacho, 18, had a breakthrough and occupied an important place in coach Erik ten Hag’s squad last season. He made a big impact with his performances on the left wing.
It seemed that the teenager would take on the iconic No. 7 shirt at Old Trafford, but the Man Utd leadership decided to give rookie Mason Mount.
Wearing the number 49 shirt last season, Garnacho started the new season with the same shirt number. However, there is still time for Garnacho to change his shirt number before the 2023 summer market closes.
Specifically, his brother Roberto revealed his brother’s new shirt number when he posted a picture of Alejandro wearing the number 17 shirt with the caption “AG17”. The winger also held an “Enzo 17” jersey for his soon-to-be-born son.
17 was initially thought to be the shirt number that rookie Rasmus Hojlund would choose. However, with Garnacho holding this shirt number, it seems that number 11 will belong to Hojlund, in the context that Mason Greenwood no longer plays for Man Utd.
Luis Nani is the most famous winger to ever wear the number 17 shirt. Most recently, Fred is the owner of this shirt number. Meanwhile. Ryan Giggs is a player who made a name for himself wearing the number 11 shirt at Old Trafford.
