Jesse Lingard invented a new way to celebrate his extraordinary goal and got roasted on the internet
Jesse Lingard’s stunning strike proved decisive for Manchester United as he blasted home a 62nd-minute goal to ease his team to 3-1 victory.
What happened next left the footballing community completely baffled.
For some reason, Lingard decided to pull out an imaginary flute and play an imaginary tune, while performing some sort of a jig routine.
And fans were collectively face-palming:
In case you are wondering why Lingard went all Pied Piper on the pitch, here’s his explanation:
“There is a new album from Drake that has just dropped,” he said.
“One of the songs, I promised my mate I would do that celebration if I scored.”
Well that clears it up.
And judging from his Snapchat post, it looks like Lingard isn’t going to let go of that imaginary flute any time soon…
