"I am broken..." - Man Utd star Alejandro Garnacho posts emotional statement after FA Cup final loss

Alejandro Garnacho has posted an emotional message to Manchester United supporters following the FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City.

United were beaten 2-1 by City at Wembley on Saturday in the first all-Manchester final in the history of the FA Cup.

Ilkay Gundogan put City ahead with the fastest-ever FA Cup final goal, after just 12 seconds, before Bruno Fernandes equalised for United from the penalty spot later in the half.

City retook the lead after the break, Gundogan once again scoring as Pep Guardiola's side held out to secure the Premier League and FA Cup double.


They will become only the second English club in history to claim the treble if they beat Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday.

Garnacho impressed for United after coming off the bench at Wembley but it was not enough to prevent defeat for the Red Devils.

The young Argentine slumped to the floor at the full-time whistle and had to be helped to his feet by teammate Marcus Rashford.

Garnacho's message to Man Utd fans


"I am broken," Garnacho wrote on Instagram after the match.

"People who know me know how obsessed I am with winning, and today it couldn't be.


"Probably one of the hardest days of my life, we will get up again because we are Manchester United.


"As he said several times, God has taught me to never give up and I promise to the fans that we will bring joy to you very soon."

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes United boss Erik ten Hag made a selection mistake in starting Jadon Sancho over Garnacho in the final.

Sancho failed to make a major impact and was substituted for Wout Weghorst with 12 minutes to go.

"I thought we would see more from Manchester United," Wright told ITV Sport.


"They improved after Garnacho came on and he definitely should have started the game for me.

"He proved he had a little bit more thrust about him."
