Why I celebrated like Ronaldo after scoring against Man Utd – Townsend…


Everton winger, Andros Townsend, has explained why he copied the iconic Cristiano Ronaldo celebration, after scoring against Manchester United on Saturday.


The Red Devils went in front thanks to a goal from Anthony Martial, with Ronaldo starting from the bench.


However, Townsend finished off a beautiful counterattack in the second half, to make it 1-1.


Ronaldo failed to make an impact when he came on, as United remain winless in three league games. But Townsend has now spoken of the 36-year-old’s influence in his career


He said: “It’s just a mark of respect to a guy who influenced my career.


I spent many hours on the training pitch and in the video room trying to analyze his free-kicks and his stepovers and the way he dedicated himself to football.


“So it wasn’t an imitation it was a mark of respect to one of my idols. I probably didn’t do the celebration justice and didn’t execute it properly.”
