At the end of the match that Manchester United drew 0-0 at home against Southampton, the Spanish-Argentine winger Alejandro Garnacho suffered a blow from Kyle Walker-Peters, and had to retire with clear signs of pain in his right leg.

At 80 minutes into the match played this Sunday at Old Trafford, the 18-year-old winger overflowed on the left and the rival defender reached the ball first, but ended up hitting Garnacho. He hooked it on the right leg and scissored the United player who made a lot of sense on the right ankle.
Then Walker-Peters approached, apologized and asked the United doctors how Alejandro was doing and his compatriot Lisandro Martínez was the first of his teammates to approach and who spoke to him to encourage him while Garnacho took his face. It should be noted that he does not usually show pain every time he receives a foul and that is why this episode promotes concern.
