Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has thrown his support behind the squad amidst potential consequences for Alejandro Garnacho’s deleted social media post concerning Andre Onana.
Garnacho celebrated Onana’s save on X (formerly Twitter) with a photo of Man Utd players. He used two gorilla emojis as a caption, post was later deleted.
Garnacho’s post may involve the FA, but Onana defended him. On X, Onana explained that people shouldn’t decide what’s offensive and understood Garnacho’s message as one of power and strength. He believes the matter should end there.
On X, Onana stated, “People cannot choose what I should be offended by. I know exactly what @agarnacho7 meant: power & strength. This matter should go no further.”
Erik ten Hag confirmed Manchester United’s discussions with the FA about Garnacho’s post. He stressed unity within the team, citing Andre’s supportive post.
“Not in this moment, we are talking with the FA, what you see, I can confirm that and I want to emphasise we are together, we are united, you saw that with the post of Andre.” Ten Hag stated.
