(HD Video) Funny moments between Cristiano Ronaldo and female footballers
Meanwhile, Hargreaves added: ‘That’s the great thing about young kids, they play with a real enthusiasm. Every time he touches it he runs forward, the first touch is amazing. It is great to see him mentored by Cristiano [Ronaldo].
‘He’s a really good player and it’s nice to see him performing on the biggest stage.’
Ronaldo has recently ditched his trademark ‘SIUUU’ celebration in favour of his new sleeping one, which is said to be a self-deprecating in-joke between Ronaldo and his team-mates, according to Manchester United’s official website.
Ronaldo is renowned for keeping himself in good shape off the pitch and also ensures that he gets plenty of rest, with the celebration representing the position in Ronaldo sleeps when he is travelling with the squad.
The 37-year-old used his new celebration after scoring his 700th goal of his career in a win over Everton last month, while his impact on the footballing world has seen the celebration being used by other players – and even young mascots.
While it will have been another dream come true for Garnacho, the same can’t be said for United and Erik ten Hag, who fell short in topping their Europa League group.
United needed to win by a two-goal margin against Real Sociedad to finish top and guarantee their spot in the knockout stages.
Now, United face the prospect of facing a Champions League dropout in a play-off game for a place in the next round, potentially setting up a meeting with the likes of Barcelona and Juventus.
