Revealed: Inside joke between Manchester United stars that sparked Cristiano Ronaldo’s new goal celebration after 700th club career goal
Manchester United FC have revealed the story behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s new goal celebration, which he pulled out after scoring his 700th club career goal against Everton at the weekend.
On Sunday, Manchester United defeated Everton to avenge their 6-3 setback to Manchester City (October 9). They defeated the Toffees 2-1 at Goodison Park, right in front of their own fans.
Ronaldo, who started the game on the bench for the Red Devils, was the match’s standout. Before the half-hour mark, Anthony Martial suffered an injury, which resulted in the attacker playing more than intended.
15 minutes after entering the game, Ronaldo seized the chance with both hands and scored.
The player’s first league goal of the year was also the game-winning score for Manchester United that evening.
The Portuguese legend’s 700th club career goal was also significant because it marked the winner. Josef Bican was the only other player to accomplish this feat before. Thus, when he managed to get the ball past Jordan Pickford on Sunday, he had more than one reason to celebrate.
The majority of Manchester United supporters anticipated that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner would perform his famous “Siu!” celebration. What the world actually saw, though, is what is now often referred to be Ronaldo’s new goal celebration.
Before sprinting toward the corner flag, the ex-Real Madrid hero gave Marcus Rashford a warm embrace. Teammate Antony joined Ronaldo as he stood there with his eyes closed.
Many others thought the forward was simply showing his relief after scoring his 700th club goal in a career.
However, it has since been revealed that Ronaldo’s new goal celebration was the result of an inside joke between Manchester United players.
In actuality, Ronaldo’s new goal celebration was a play on his traveling sleeping habits. He promotes getting enough sleep to be in the greatest possible condition, and even while he is sleeping, his teammates seem to be observing him.
