A day in the life of Alejandro Garnacho
He uploaded an image of him training alongside Lionel Messi meaning he had the pleasure of training alongside both the Argentine and Cristiano Ronaldo within a matter of days.
Now, Garnacho can say that he’s actually played a Premier League alongside Ronaldo.
He was introduced in second-half injury-time against Chelsea and footage showing the reaction of his family is just wonderful.
As Alejandro entered the pitch to an incredible reception, fan footage captured his family’s wonderful reaction.
His father couldn’t help but cry, while he also comforts another family member who appears overcome with emotion.
After seeing the reaction from his family, both captain Harry Maguire and United’s executive vice-chairman Richard Arnold went over to the family to congratulate them.
Alejandro Garnacho was born on the 1st day of July 2004 to his Mother, Patricia Ferreyra Fernández, and Father, Alex Garnacho, in Madrid, Spain.
He arrived in the world as one among two children (himself and a brother) born to the marital union between Patricia and Alex, his Mum and Dad.
The professional football Athlete who plays as a winger for Man United spent his childhood years in Madrid. As a boy, Alejandro Garnacho was known to love two things. The first was his favourite cartoon, a Japanese manga series known as Captain Tsubasa.
Alejandro Garnacho’s memory of this cartoon is presented as body art on his left leg.
Alejandro Garnacho’s second greatest childhood attraction was his soccer ball. Despite being born and bred in Spain, he took a special liking for The White and Sky Blue colour. Young Alejandro was fond of the Argentine kit, including having a soccer ball to be of the same colour.
Patricia, who is Alejandro Garnacho’s mother, was responsible for always wrapping her son in Argentine colours, including gifting him an Argentine soccer ball. So, because of her efforts, her little Jewel developed a likeness for Gabriel Batistuta‘s La Albiceleste team.
The Footballer is from Arroyomolinos, a municipality located in the southwest Community of Spain’s capital, Madrid. Being a Spanish-born Athlete of Argentine descent means Alejandro Garnacho has two nationalities or citizenship to his name.
He, by virtue of his birth and Dad’s origin, is a bona fide Madrid native. And he is Argentine because his Mother, Patricia Ferreyra Fernández, was born in the South American country.
When the time got right, Alex and Patricia (his parents) approved his enrolment at the Arroyomolinos Municipal School, Southwest Madrid. While there, young Alejandro began playing soccer. Outside school, he continued his development at a neighbouring club, Getafe CF.
Alejandro Garnacho’s parents are Alex Garnacho (father) and Patricia Ferreyra Fernández (mother).
His mother has Argentinian heritage. His father is Spanish.
One very notable thing to know about the Spanish-born Argentine is the fact that his Mum, Patricia Ferreyra Fernández, hails from South America. The Argentine roots of Alejandro’s Mum gave him the licence to play for Lionel Scaloni’s La Albiceleste team.
Patricia Ferreyra Fernández was born and raised in Argentina. During a holiday to Spain’s capital, she met and fell in love with Alex, who later became Alejandro Garnacho’s Dad. Both lovers got married and decided to live and raise their kids in the Southwest of Madrid.
While Garnacho’s Argentinian heritage is from his Mum, he is Spanish because of his birth and because his Dad’s hails from the European country, Spain. Alejandro Garnacho’s Father, Alex, has been the mainstay of his career, while his Mum and Brother are the accomplices.
One of Alejandro Garnacho’s parents’ proudest moments was when they witnessed their son realizing his long-term dream by signing a professional contract. The joys of being a professional are the culmination of years of sacrifice, dedication and hard work he gave to the sport.
Alejandro Garnacho has only one sibling who is his younger brother, Robert Garnacho. Robert has always looked up to and sought guidance from his big brother, who is a well-known football celebrity.
