Andros Townsend explains why he copied Cristiano Ronaldo’s Siu celebration

Andros Townsend explains why he copied Cristiano Ronaldo’s Siu celebration

Everton hold on to a point at Old Trafford

Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjear continued to struggle as they dropped yet more points at home, this time drawing 1-1 to a weakened Everton side.

Anthony Martial, handed a rare start for the Red Devils, gave his side the lead in the dying embers of a first half that offered little for either side.

However, a break from a Manchester United corner in the second half saw Abdoulaye Doucoure feed Andros Townsend, who rifled in a deserved equaliser for the Toffees.

To compound the misery of those watching of a red persuasion, the Englishman then pulled out the classic Cristiano Ronaldo “Siu” celebration in front of the Everton travelling faithful.

Rafa Benitez’s side could have taken all three points too, with a late Yerey Mina goal ruled out for offside.

Townsend explains why he copied Ronaldo’s celebration

Following the game, Townsend has since explained why he did CR7’s celebration, claiming that it was to show respect to his idol.

“You know what, don’t disguise my idol spent hours on the training pitch trying to execute his techniques maybe should’ve spent a bit longer on the celebration because it wasn’t great execution,” 

“But it was a bit of respect to Cristiano and an honour to be on the field with him”
