The Football Association (FA) has concluded its investigation into Manchester United winger Alejandro Garnacho and will not be taking any action regarding his use of gorilla emojis in a social media post featuring Andre Onana.
In a recent Champions League match, United’s goalkeeper, Onana, made a crucial stoppage-time penalty save, securing a vital 1-0 victory against Copenhagen. Following this triumph, Garnacho shared a photo on social media depicting the players celebrating. In his caption, the 19-year-old included two gorilla emojis. However, the post was promptly removed after facing criticism.
In response to the controversy, Onana came to his teammate’s defense, explaining that the emojis were meant to symbolize “power and strength.” He further advocated that this issue should not be escalated.
After a thorough investigation, the FA has decided to clear Garnacho of any wrongdoing in this matter.
NEW BRISTOL CITY BOSS EXCITED FOR CHALLENGE
Bristol City’s new manager, Liam Manning, is excited about the prospect of leading the team to higher ranks in the Championship. Manning, recently signing a three-and-a-half-year contract after parting ways with Oxford United, expressed his enthusiasm for the role, stating, “I’m genuinely thrilled about this opportunity. When I consider the club’s vision, its objectives, and the path to achieving them, I see a strong alignment with my own ambitions and journey.”
Manning emphasized the importance of respecting the club’s history and local culture, emphasizing the role of custodians in leaving the club in a better condition than they found it. He pledged a commitment to implementing robust day-to-day processes, becoming emotionally invested in the team’s endeavors, and bringing a passionate, driven, and hungry approach to improving every aspect of the club.
The 38-year-old manager will make his debut in the dugout as Bristol City faces mid-table rivals, QPR, this coming Saturday.
