Manchester United Star Bruno Fernandes Explains Meaning Behind His 'Hands Over His Ears' Goal Celebration
Fernandes puts his hands over his ears every time he scores for United as he celebrates in his trademark way.
And the Portuguese international has revealed that his daughter inspired his unique goal celebration.
Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "This is a long story!
"In Portugal, when I was playing, and I started my second season in Sporting, my daughter was growing up, you know.
"Sometimes, me and my wife, we talk with her and she started doing like this [puts his fingers in his ears] after she started doing this.

But the 26-year-old is concerned that TV cameras do not always pick up his celebration.
He added: "I need to talk with Sky because, every time I did this, it never comes [out] so, all the time, when I call her after the game she tells me - you don't do it!
"I need to send photos sometimes, look I do it! You see?
"Now she knows every time I do that for her. In the beginning, she didn't know but now she knows, every time, it's for her."
He scored an impressive 12 goals in all competitions last season after joining The Red Devils in January.
