Alejandro Garnacho Performs Cristiano Ronaldo's 'SIUU' Celebration In Man United's FA Youth Cup Win

Alejando Garnacho performed Cristiano Ronaldo's iconic 'SIUU' celebration after scoring for Manchester United in their FA Youth Cup triumph.

Garnacho, who was named the club's U18 Player of the Year before kick-off, starred as Man United beat Nottingham Forest 3-1 to win the FA Youth Cup in front of a raucous 67,492-strong crowd on Wednesday.

Rhys Bennett headed home to give Man United the lead over Forest, who levelled through Josh Powell.

But Garnacho restored his side's lead 12 minutes from time after successfully converting a penalty.

He copied Ronaldo's trademark celebration following his goal in the FA Youth Cup final.

The teenager performed the 'SIUU' celebration, which was greeted by a thunderous reception from the Old Trafford faithful.


Garnacho then bagged his second goal of the night with a stunning individual effort to wrap things up.

He pounced on a mistake before cutting back and forth, eventually finding the back of the net with a left footed strike.

The Spanish-born Argentinean is destined for big things having excelled at youth level.

He played a big part in helping Man United reach the final after scoring in their 3-0 win over Wolves last month. 

The highly-rated forward, who signed from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2020, was handed a surprise call-up to Argentina's 44-man squad ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Ecuador.

And he made a cameo appearance in the Premier League, making his debut against Chelsea. 

Garnacho​'s recent performances could alert incoming boss Erik ten Hag who's expected to make wholesale changes to the squad ahead of taking over from Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season.
