Alejandro Garnacho made a young fan’s day by gifting him the boots that he wore for his bicycle kick against Everton.
Still just 19, Garnacho showed that he’s very much cut from the same cloth as Cristiano Ronaldo, whom he paid tribute to by performing his famous ‘Siuu’ celebration in the 3-0 win.
Back at training at Carrington, the Argentine starlet was greeted outside the club’s training complex by a young supporter named George who was hoping to catch a glimpse of the superstar on his birthday.
As Garnacho pulled up in his car, George was clearly starstruck.
“That’s the best goal I’ve ever seen,” said the young fan, to which Garnacho laughed: “Yeah? Same!”
The video then cut to the Man United star pulling out an orange box and saying: “This is my present. I scored yesterday in these ones so you have to use [them].”
The little boy was clearly delighted as he said: “Thank you so much” through the tears, before Garnacho showed him that the boots were signed by him as well.
“I’m so happy,” said George. “Garnacho gave me his boots.”
Asked what the message on the box said, he replied: “To my friend, George, Happy Birthday.”
Clearly overcome with emotion, the little boy then said: “Thank you Garnacho, I love you. You’re the best in the world.”
If he can pull off some more strikes like that, it won’t be long until Garnacho genuinely can count himself among the best in the world.
