'Any stadium, he wouldn't care' – Man Utd ace Alejandro Garnacho tipped for top after penalty winner in Youth Cup final

ICE-COOL Alejandro Garnacho could slot home a pressure penalty in any stadium and "he wouldn't care", says Manchester United coach Travis Binnion.

The 17-year-old academy ace held his nerve to restore United's lead in the 3-1 win against Nottingham Forest in the FA Youth Cup final.



Garnacho's penalty contributed to United's 11th Youth Cup and it happened in front of 67,492 fans inside Old Trafford.

And United coach Binnion says Garnacho, who made his first-team debut against Chelsea last month, could hold his nerve in any stadium and "he wouldn't care".

Binnion said: "That boy could be in any stadium in the world and he wouldn't care.

"That's his make-up. A few of them are like that and that's why they are going to have good careers.
