How Samuel Umtiti Celebrated OG From Manolas Got Everybody Talking
Samuel Umtiti's celebration got plenty of people talking.
Despite the goal going down as an OG.
Barcelona head into the second leg against AS Roma with a comfortable lead following the 4-1 victory at the Camp Nou.
Daniele De Rossi scored through his own net to hand the hosts the lead.
Umtiti thought he put his side two up, while the goal stood, it was credited as an Kevin Manolas OG. Defensive partner Gerard Pique then made it three, with Luis Suarez also getting on the score-sheet.
Even though he wasn't awarded the goal, the French defender wheeled away in celebration while gesturing to the Barcelona badge.

Remember when Neymar held the badge after he scored against PSG and then left. Jk Umtiti isn't leaving, definitely not a snake.

Umtiti, 24, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United. Jose Mourinho has made no secret about his desire to sign a defender in the summer transfer window.
He's reportedly been in regular contract with Umtiti in an attempt to lure him to Old Trafford.
However, it appears his celebration is a hint that he remains committed to Barcelona.
