Alejandro Garnacho slammed by former Juventus star for Cristiano Ronaldo celebration

Alejandro Garnacho has come under fire for copying Cristiano Ronaldo's iconic 'Siu' celebration after his incredible bicycle kick goal against Everton.

Garnacho's love for Cristiano Ronaldo is well known, as he previously copied his former teammate's otherbtrademark celebrations when he scored his first Manchester United goal last season.

The Argentine wheeled away and performed the 'Siu' in front of the Everton supporters in what will surely go down as one of the Premier League's great moments, but not everyone is happy with his celebration.

Former Juventus man Arturo Vidal believes Garnacho was wrong to imitate his idol and thinks the youngster should "make his own name."

"It’s good that he is his idol, respect for that, but then he has to make his name," said Vidal via Twitch.

"How are you going to celebrate a goal and remember it? I don’t know, celebrate it another way," Vidal added.

Vidal has played against Cristiano Ronaldo multiple times throughout his career, and is probably quite qualified to speak on the celebration having seen it plenty of times in person.

It wasn't all criticism from the Chile international, who labelled the United teenager "an already great player" and commended him for "a great goal."

It was more than just the celebration that imitated the five-time Ballon'Dor winner, with the goal itself well worth being compared to Ronaldo's bicycle kick against Juventus in 2017.

The emphatic volley put Manchester United 1-0 up inside just three minutes, and Garnacho continued a fine performance that saw United win 3-0 at Goodison Park.

The 19-year-old was awarded Player of the Match after the game for his role in the win.

United have now won five of their last six Premier League matches, with their only loss being a 3-0 home defeat to Champions Manchester City.

Garnacho will need to carry over his form from the weekend forward, with crucial matches against Galatasaray and Newcastle on the horizon.

Erik ten Hag's side now sit just six points of the summit of the Premier League and four behind 4th placed Villa.
