After scoring against Man U, CR7 gives Everton's star a special gift for copying his Siu Celebration

After Everton's match at Old Trafford, Andros Townsend said Cristiano Ronaldo gave him his Man United jersey.

Townsend stole the scene at the Theatre of Dreams when he imitated Ronaldo's famous celebration after the Toffees equalized.

According to the winger, he was not attempting to make fun of the United striker and was merely doing it in honor of the Portuguese.

Ronaldo's legendary No.7 shirt, which he received from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, was flaunted on social media by the Everton star.

Despite Man United's 1-1 tie with Everton at Old Trafford, Cristiano Ronaldo showed his class by gifting Andros Townsend his shirt after the game.

At the Theatre of Dreams, Townsend stole the scene by imitating Ronaldo's classic 'Siu' celebration.

The former England winger equalized in the 65th minute, canceling out Anthony Martial's 43rd-minute wonder goal, before imitating Ronaldo's celebration.

The 30-year-old later stated that the Manchester United legend gave him his shirt, which he uploaded on Instagram with the caption "Nothing but respect for the GOAT."

Townsend said earlier after the game that he was not trying to insult Ronaldo with his celebration and that he simply did it as a "show of respect."


“This guy is my idol. I was not imitating, it’s just a mark of respect to a guy who influenced my career," SunSport quoted him saying.

“I grew up watching Cristiano Ronaldo and spent hours on the training pitch trying to execute his techniques," he continued.

Cristiano Ronaldo was voted Manchester United Player of the Month for September, according to Briefly News, after scoring five goals in six games across all competitions.

The 36-year-old Portuguese made a remarkable comeback to Old Trafford, 12 years after leaving for Real Madrid in 2009.

On September 11, he made his miraculous comeback with a magnificent brace against Newcastle United on his debut.
