EPL: Why I celebrated like Ronaldo after scoring against Man Utd – Townsend

Everton winger, Andros Townsend, has explained why he copied the iconic Cristiano Ronaldo celebration, after scoring against Manchester United on Saturday.

He said: “It’s just a mark of respect to a guy who influenced my career. “I spent many hours on the training pitch and in the video room trying to analyze his free-kicks and his stepovers and the way he dedicated himself to football. “So it wasn’t an im...

It's been fantastic. This is the best group I've ever played with. 'At Juventus we really feel like a team, unlike elsewhere where some players feel like they are better than others.
