Cristiano Ronaldo's reaction when Garnacho imitated his celebration

It is no secret that Alejandro Garnacho is a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, his teammate on the squad. The soccer player with Argentine roots hit the table at the Manchester United a few days before the start of the World Cup and took over the title to be essential in the team's classification in the Europa League.

He was the key player in the 3-0 over FC Sheriff Tiraspol on the previous date and figure in the 1-0 against Real Sociedad in the final match of the group stage. There was a detail in those two meetings that did not go unnoticed by anyone: Cristiano Ronaldo held a unique celebration that days later Garnacho imitated.

The Portuguese, who is not having his best moment in the Red Devils , scored against the Moldovans after three drought games but also after starring in a scandal that put him in the center of the scene. That day, moreover, was the debut as a starter for the 18-year-old Argentine, who did not shout his goal but shone with his production.

It took just one more presentation from the start to shout his own goal and decided to pay tribute to his idol CR7. Although he first threw himself on his knees with his arms crossed with a celebration similar to the one Kylian Mbappé does, he hugged the Portuguese and seemed to warn him what he would do: He turned, looked at the rostrum, crossed his hands on his chest and closed his eyes. The same scene that she had painted a few days before Christian.

Although the official transmission showed the repetition of the goal, the cameras of the fans in the stands and some supporters who located the scene managed to show the full moment. In any case, it was Garnacho himself who chose that celebration for a post on his social networks. “18 years and 125 days dreaming of this moment. Thank you idol, Cristiano”, he wrote on his networks.

It was not the only message he dedicated to the Portuguese, since a few days before, in his debut as a starter, he also chose a photo with CR7 to celebrate what happened. “I don't know if it's real or if I'm dreaming”, he posted at the time. Her father, the Spaniard Alex, also dedicated a message to her on Instagram: “Proud of you son, because you deserve everything, because only we know what you have sacrificed to get here, this is only the beginning of what you are willing to continue sacrificing, that is why we know that above all you are going to be happy that It is the most important thing in life, never change Puppy”.

“Garnacho is a very fast winger and something I really like about him is that he always tries to face up, he is one of those players that you put who you put it will always go forward and that is something that I like. In addition to that, he is a great friend of mine”, praised his teammate, the Uruguayan Facundo Pellistri.

Although what was surprising was the message left by the Portuguese captain Bruno Fernandes: “He is having more chances because he trains better, he has a different attitude and he deserves his chances. He's been good, but he knows we expect a lot from him. He is still very young. Everyone is very happy for him and satisfied with his goal. At the beginning of the season, during the tour, he didn't have the best attitude and that's why until now he hasn't had many chances to play”. The Spaniard with an Argentine mother had previously been a substitute 13 times and had only added a few minutes at the end of 3 games.

Those last six points that the English obtained in the Europa League were essential to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League. They reached the 15-point line, although they fell behind Real Sociedad on goal difference and will have to face the round of 16. Garnacho now has three more games for a double challenge: definitively seize the starting role in the Red Devils and put pressure on coach Lionel Scaloni to summon him to the World Cup with the Argentine team.
