Discussions about Alejandro Garnacho’s deadlock breaker against Everton yesterday have yet to die down. Moreover, the Argentine has reacted to the bicycle kick that got him the goal, showing his admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo in one of them.
Fans were amazed at Goodison Park yesterday when Garnacho executed an acrobatic strike that birthed a goal within three minutes of the first whistle. The 19-year-old’s success became the first of three in the clean sheet contest.
Speaking after the match, the teenager admitted he was surprised by the fact that the ball found the net since his back was turned at his target.
‘I can’t believe it, to be honest,’ Garnacho said to Sky Sports. ‘I didn’t see how it went in. I just listened around and said, ‘oh my God.’ For me, one of the best goals I have ever scored. Yes, probably (one of the goals of the season) but is only November.’
This accomplishment puts the Argentine among the list of two other players who ever tried the same kick at Manchester United: Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
While celebrating his wonder goal, the young player chose to celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo style, jumping up, making an X with his arms, and bringing them down to his sides before his feet touched the turf.
It is possible that the Red Devils’ glorious days might be coming back after an unsightly start to the season. Several players are allegedly marked for sale. They include Jadon Sancho, Antony Dos Santos, and Martial.
United’s captain Bruno Fernandes reacted as follows concerning the goal: ‘A goal like this has to silence the crowd. Everton fans were, of course, not really happy about it, but I think they would enjoy seeing this kind of goal.
‘It is amazing that football players can do this kind of thing. We are all proud of him and obviously I am very happy to have him on our side.’
