The 22-year-old midfielder scored a brilliant first-half equalizer against Schalke that is followed by his celebration that looked quite similar to the iconic celebration of the Portuguese legend. And now, Hertha BSC’s Marko Grujic explains his rendition about that particular style of celebration after his goal.
He openly admitted that he could not control himself from replicating the iconic celebration style of Cristiano Ronaldo. Yevhen Konoplyanka scored an early opener that put Schalke ahead on that match. But, Grujic then scored the crucial equalizer followed by the celebration with a jump and spreaded arms.
The ‘Cristiano Ronaldo’ celebration of Marko Grujic
The young footballer expressed that he did not have a plan to copy the celebration of the Portuguese star but he could not control himself doing that. Marko Grujic recently joined Hertha on loan from Liverpool until the end of the 2018-19 football season. And since his joining, he displayed quite a promising start.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hands, is spending quite a good time with Bianconeri boys as Juventus is now holding the top place of the Serie A table with an 11-point lead. Besides, Cristiano Ronaldo recently won the Suppercoppa Italiana with Juventus a few days ago. He also holds the second highest goalscorer’s place with 15 goals in 21 matches.
