Diogo Dalot explains “good sign” and details why he celebrates other Man United goals more



| Last Updated:


Diogo Dalot has been one of Erik ten Hag’s most consistent performances at Manchester United this season and has also scored a few goals.

Diogo Dalot has played almost every single Manchester United fixture under Erik ten Hag this season, contributing significantly both in defence and attack during a turbulent period at Old Trafford.

Dalot scored two goals against Wigan in the FA Cup and Sheffield United in the Premier League this season, and both were the opening goals of the game.

He also provided a fantastic assist for Scott McTominay’s winning header against Aston Villa earlier this month and has played at both right-back and left-back amongst serious injury problems across the back line.

He has been known to celebrate by checking his pulse on his neck once he scores, and when asked if fans might see more fresh celebrations as the campaign reaches its climax, Dalot said to club media: “That would be a good sign. It’s a sign that we will be scoring.

“We’ll be scoring a lot of goals. So the mandate is for them to think about new celebrations and creativity, I’ll keep mine [the same], if I score one. So, I just keep it short and sharp. Just the one, and I’ll leave the creativity to them.”

While this celebration represents calmness, Dalot has been known to celebrate with much more enthusiasm and energy when his teammates score – something he knows he does as he gets caught up in the moment like many fans of United.

“Yeah, I think I celebrate more when I don’t score!” he explained. “More when my teammates score than when I’m actually scoring a goal.

“I mean, it just shows how much I care about first, the club, and then my teammates. The way they score and the team reacts, I think that’s the most important.

“And for them to feel my energy. I think it’s also important for them to know that I will celebrate with them when we win. As long as we keep together, as long as we act as a team, I think we can do it.”
