Former Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has hit out at Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho for copying Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal celebration style.
Garnacho, who opened the scoreboard for the Red Devils against Everton with a sensational overhead kick over the weekend, made headlines after he pulled off Ronaldo’s famous ‘Siuuu’ celebration.
Vidal, while speaking on Twitch, advised Garnacho to carve his unique style in the sport, instead of imitating Ronaldo, who is already made.
He said: “The only bad thing or what I didn’t understand, is why he celebrates like Cristiano.” He has to make his own name. He is already a great player. It’s good that he is his idol; respect for that, but then he has to make his name.”
“How are you going to celebrate a goal and remember it? I don’t know; celebrate it another way. But it was a great goal; it was a great goal.”
