Manchester United youngster trolls Barcelona with Ronaldo celebration after wondergoal
This is quick thinking from United youngster Callum Gribbin, who scored a Messi-esque goal for the Red Devils U19 side against their Catalan counterparts.
Manchester United fans are very excited by young midfield prospect Callum Gribbin.
The playmaker scored five times for United's U18 side last season, while also featuring heavily in the UEFA Youth League.
The 17-year-old showcased his potential this week in an Otten Cup tie against Barcelona by weaving his way through the Spanish team's defence before flummoxing the goalkeeper with a tidy finish.
What really topped off the quality goal, though, was the celebration.
In both a shoutout to United legend Cristiano Ronaldo and a veritable 'two fingers' to the Catalan outfit, Gribbin executed the Real Madrid hitman's custom celebration to perfection:
Supporters of the club were gleeful over both the goal and the bold move:
