Alejandro Garnacho may be subject to disciplinary action after using gorilla emojis in a picture to celebrate Andre Onana’s penalty save during Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League match. The picture was taken to celebrate Andre Onana’s save on a penalty kick.
Even though Alejandro Garnacho removed the social media post after being warned about the possibility that it included racist undertones, the English Football Association is aware of the incident and may charge him with breaking the criteria for dealing with racially sensitive content on social media.
The opening match of the new season in the UEFA Champions League was won by Manchester United, and it was a magnificent victory. The Red Devils’ hopes of advancing from the group stage were kept alive by goalkeeper Andre Onana’s save on a penalty kick taken by Copenhagen in the final second of the match.
The incredible save made by Cameronian International was applauded all around the world, and the fact that their teenage player Alejandro Garnacho made the post could result in disciplinary consequences for him. The social media post that Alejandro Garnacho made that was later deleted may be seen in the screenshot below.
The Football Association (FA) will likely take disciplinary action against the teenager once its inquiry has been completed, despite the fact that several spectators feel he did not intend to offend his colleagues’ race in any way.
