Garnacho asks Ronaldo’s permission to do his new celebration (Photos)



Alejandro Garnacho asked Cristiano Ronaldo for his permission to perform his new ‘napping’ celebration after scoring his first goal for Manchester United.

The teenager scored with a stunning strike to give United a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in their final Europa League group game.

The strike was made even more special for the 18-year-old given how it was his ‘idol’ Ronaldo that put him through on goal, capping off a ‘dream’ first goal for his club..

As he celebrated with his United team-mates, Garnacho can be seen asking Ronaldo if he could use his new celebration while gesturing it to the Portuguese talisman.

The heartwarming moment makes Ronaldo laugh, before he pats Garnacho on the head and grants him his wish.

A moment later, the young Argentinian pulls away from his United team-mates and is seen paying tribute to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner..

Garnacho took to social media after the game to thank Ronaldo for his part in making it a night he’d never forget.

Garnacho tweeted: ’18 years and 125 days dreaming of this moment. Thanks Idol, @Cristiano’

Garnacho’s strike also earned the plaudits of United greats Paul Scholes and Owen Hargreaves, who were full of praise for the young forward.

Speaking on BT Sport at half-time, both Hargreaves and Scholes credited him with being United’s best in another encouraging performance.

‘I’m really pleased for the young lad, he’s been United’s best player,’ Scholes said.

‘That second touch really makes the goal, he gets it out of his feet and slides it into the top corner. I think he’s been far and away the biggest attacking threat on the pitch. I don’t think the keeper covers himself in glory, but it’s a lovely finish.’
