Manchester United captain Harry Maguire says team-mate Alejandro Garnacho has ‘the world at his feet’.

The 18-year-old attacker scored a key goal in the closing stages of the Red Devils FA Cup fifth round win against West Ham on Wednesday.

Garnacho was awarded the Man of the Match award after a superb performance, where he terrorised the right hand side of West Ham defence.

The winger has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Old Trafford this term, scoring four goals and providing four assists in 27 matches in all competitions.

Manchester United are trying to tie Garnacho down to a new long-term deal, with his current contract set to expire in 18 months’ time.

And Maguire believes the former Atletico Madrid star has everything to make it to the very top of the game.

When asked how good Garnacho is, Maguire said: ‘Very good. He is a young boy with amazing talent, so he has got the world at his feet.

‘If he works hard, pushes every day and trains hard like he is doing at the moment, he will have a big future.’

The Red Devils will now play against Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-finals at Old Trafford after progressing to the next round.

Their next match comes against rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League.
