Mohammed Kudus finally responds to Alejandro Garnacho ‘copying’ his celebration, it’s a strange comment

West Ham star Mohammed Kudus has finally reacted to Alejandro Garnacho ‘copying’ his celebration during his team’s 3-0 loss against Manchester United in February.

United won comfortably against The Hammers last month at Old Trafford, just two months after being on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline at the London Stadium.

Kudus, who has been a standout performer for David Moyes’ side this term following his summer move from Ajax, scored the second goal on that day and celebrated by sitting on the advertising boards at his home stadium.

“I just thought about something out of the box, and then some other people followed it up,” the Ghanaian winger explained when asked by The Guardian about the context behind the celebration.

“There’s no deeper meaning. I just see it as entertainment, something to make people happy and worth the ticket that they bought. I’m still just having fun in the playground.”

Interestingly, when Alejandro Garnacho scored his second goal in the 3-0 win at Old Trafford, he celebrated the exact same way as his competitor. Rasmus Højlund and Kobbie Mainoo joined him to create an iconic-looking photo.

Speaking after the victory, Garnacho was coy about its meaning. “The celebration, there is some inspiration,” he said with a wry smile.

Kudus’ teammate at West Ham, Michail Antonio, admitted that his squad took Garnacho’s celebration to heart afterwards.

Now, almost two months later, Kudus has addressed that Garnacho moment in what can only be described as a strange comment.

When asked by The Guardian whether he noticed the United players ‘copying’ his celebration, Kudus said: “They’re allowed to do it. But soon, they will have to start paying taxes.”

Yup, I’m not quite sure either…
