Alejandro Garnacho pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo after Manchester United's FA Youth Cup win

By George Smith

Manchester United's FA Youth Cup hero Alejandro Garnacho has paid tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo following his two-goal haul at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

Garnacho, who made his United first-team debut against Chelsea last month, scored two second-half goals to help United's Under-18s beat Nottingham Forest 3-1 to secure their first Youth Cup crown in 11 years. United took an early lead through captain Rhys Bennett but were pegged back just before half-time through Forest ace Josh Powell.

However, United restored their lead with just 12 minutes left on the clock when Garnacho dispatched a controversial penalty. He added his second of the night and netted United's third in stoppage time to wrap up the victory.

Garnacho celebrated his penalty by replicating Ronaldo's iconic 'Siuuu' celebration, running towards the tunnel before dancing through the air and turning to face his approaching teammates. It is Ronaldo's trademark and it has clearly rubbed off on the young Argentine.

He then stood looking up into the Stretford End with his arms held aloft, again replicating Ronaldo. After the game, the youngster took to Instagram to share a collage of images, displaying the similarities between Ronaldo's celebration and his own.

As you can see from Garnacho's Instagram post above, it is clear that he has a strong love for Ronaldo. He replicated his iconic celebrations and was seemingly keen to show it.

The youngster was the star of United's FA Youth Cup run, scoring seven goals in six appearances. He is a star in the making and earned special praise from Under-18s boss Travis Binnion after the match.

"That boy could be in any stadium in the world and he wouldn't care," Binnion said. "That's his make-up, and a few of them are like that, that's why they are going to have good careers."
