MANCHESTER UNITED wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho asked idol Cristiano Ronaldo if he could use his new iconic celebration after scoring against Real Sociedad.
The 18-year-old started his second ever game for United and bagged his first goal.
He became United’s youngest ever non-English goal scorer in European football.
After firing United in front against Sociedad, Garnacho decided to pay tribute to Ronaldo by replicating his new meditation celebration.
The youngster could be seen asking idol Ronaldo is he could use it, much to the 37-year-old’s delight.
Fans were touched by the moment, with one saying: “Whether you call him finished or not.
“You can’t deny that Ronaldo’s influence is unreal.
“He is an inspiration and motivation to young footballers and fans all over the world.”
Another said: “Love the fact he asked Cristiano to do it.”
A third tweeted: “Dreams do come true.”
Garnacho’s goal wasn’t enough to inspire United to score more.
Despite winning, they finished second in their Europa League group, meaning they will contest a preliminary knockout round.
They could face any of the following teams: Ajax, Barcelona, Juventus, Leverkusen, Salzburg, Sevilla, Shakhtar and Sporting CP.
It also means they will play two extra games in the New Year, instead of skipping to the Round of 16.
