Ronaldo is clearly not happy over the incident that occured yesterday as United suffered another disappointing result
Despite claiming a lead right in the first half, Man United failed to hold on to that as Everton later hit back into the tune.
Townsend was instrumental to this as he fired brilliantly past Man United goalkeeper to put Everton back on track.
United were unable to restore their lead and had to share their spoils with Everton which clearly isn’t a desired result for Cristiano Ronaldo who is back at United to win trophies.
But it wasn’t just about the draw that pisses Ronaldo, seeing Townsend copying his Siuu celebration when he (Ronaldo) is in the opposing team.
Although Townsend had claimed his celebration was as a respect to his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo. “Not imitating, it’s just a mark of respect to a guy who influenced my career,” Townsend told BT Sport.
“I spent many hours on the training pitch and in the video room trying to analyse his free kicks and his stepovers and the way he dedicated himself to football.
“So it wasn’t an imitation, it was a mark of respect to one of my idols. I probably didn’t do the celebration justice and didn’t execute it properly.”
After the game, Townsend also shared on social media that he had swapped jerseys with Ronaldo.
But it clearly isn’t same for Ronaldo who has shared his unhappiness towards the incident.
Speaking after the game, Ronaldo said; “It’s not a good result for us, we had almost won the game until he (Townsend) scored.
“But taking my celebration too (laughs) not good for me. Not happy for that. Maybe better in another game, not against me.
