Cristiano Ronaldo gives Alejandro Garnacho permission to do iconic new celebration after Man Utd wonderkids goal | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho asked idol Cristiano Ronaldo if he could use his new iconic celebration after scoring against Real Sociedad.

The 18-year-old started his second ever game for United and bagged his first goal.




Ronaldo played Garnacho through on goal and the winger cooly found the back of the net, scoring the only goal of the game.

He became United's youngest ever non-English goal scorer in European football.

After firing United in front against Sociedad, Garnacho decided to pay tribute to Ronaldo by replicating his new meditation celebration.

The youngster could be seen asking idol Ronaldo is he could use it, much to the 37-year-old's delight.
