Alejandro Garnacho could be punished due to a post related to Onana

Manchester United striker Alejandro Garnacho is under analysis by the English Football Association (FA) due to a post on a social network, where he shared a photo of goalkeeper André Onana with his teammates, accompanied by gorilla emojis in the caption.

The FA is considering disciplinary action due to possible racist connotations in the post. Despite changing the caption and removing the gorilla emojis before deleting the post, it was replicated on other internet platforms, generating accusations of racial content from several fans.

This incident evokes memories of a similar case involving Edinson Cavani in 2020, when he played for Manchester United. On that occasion, the Uruguayan responded to a comment on his Instagram profile using a term considered racist. Although he deleted the post and apologized, citing a lack of intention to commit racial slurs, Cavani was sanctioned by the FA for inappropriate conduct and breaking anti-racism rules.

Garnacho, 19, scored one goal this season and is regularly called up by coach Lionel Scaloni to represent the Argentine national team. The player’s post made reference to Onana’s penalty save in Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over Copenhagen last Tuesday, in the UEFA Champions League.
