Man United legends hail Alejandro Garnacho after scoring ‘Goal of the Season’ against Everton

Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand were among those to quickly declare Alejandro Garnacho’s overhead kick for Manchester United against Everton as the ‘Goal of the Season’.

United took on Everton on Sunday at a raucous Goodison Park, with the home fans in full voice after the club were controversially docked 10 points for breaching the Premier League’s financial rules.

But the crowd were quickly silenced after Garnacho opened the scoring after meeting Diogo Dalot’s cross with a spectacular overhead kick from the edge of the box.

His shot sailed past Jordan Pickford into the top corner, with every player on the pitch in disbelief at the goal, with onlookers quickly comparing it to Wayne Rooney’s legendary bicycle-kick against Manchester City.

‘He can’t believe it, Garnacho. I can’t believe it,’ Neville, on commentary duty for Sky Sports exclaimed.

‘That was unbelievable. A magical, magical goal.’

Fellow United legend Ferdinand tweeted his approval: ‘Thanks Garnacho. Goal of the season complete.’

Legendary Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt, a well-known fan of the Red Devils, also tweeted: ‘Goal of the Season’.

‘But the contact he makes, the skill levels, as soon as it left his foot… I’m usually critical of goalkeepers, but I’ll let him off this time! It’s a brilliant goal, and a brilliant start.’

Ex-Tottenham skipper Michael Dawson added: ‘The ping from Lindelof’s original ball, the strike from Garnacho, I was off my chair. It was absolutely sensational
