FA Cup Quarters: Hilarious Celebration Spotted!
Manchester United fans had plenty to celebrate after the Red Devils managed to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a win against West Ham United.
It looked bleak for The Red Devils when they went 1-0 down in the second half, but they turned it around with three goals in the final 13 minutes. Nayef Aguerd's own goal brought United level before Alejandro Garnacho scored a stunning strike in stoppage time to give his side the lead. Fred then sealed the victory with a goal in the match's dying moments.
As the players celebrated, Lisandro Martinez took things a little too far with an over-enthusiastic celebration, which saw him slide two-footed into his teammates.
Fans online were left amused by the aggressive celebration of Lisandro Martinez, with one fan commenting that "Martinez has no chill." Another fan added, "He just slide tackled into the celebration," while a third fan remarked, "He just two-footed two of our players." This celebration is a clear indication of the type of player Martinez is, and it certainly demonstrated his passion and aggression on the pitch.
