Garnacho brutallly told to focus on himself because “he will never be like Ronaldo”

Alejandro Garnacho has received frank feedback regarding his efforts to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Argentine rising star has openly expressed his admiration for the five-time Ballon d’Or recipient, often honoring his idol by mimicking Ronaldo’s goal celebrations.


In recent matches, Garnacho showcased his talent by scoring, notably netting an impressive bicycle kick against Everton.

Following this goal, he chose to celebrate using Ronaldo’s iconic ‘Siiu’ gesture, displaying his profound admiration for the football icon.

Additionally, in a subsequent match against Galatasaray in the Champions League, Garnacho replicated Ronaldo’s controversial ‘Calma’ celebration upon finding the net.

While having a role model early in one’s career is commendable, former Liverpool player Mark Lawrenson suggests that Garnacho might be going too far.

Ahead of a crucial game against Newcastle United, Lawrenson shared his thoughts on the 19-year-old, advising him to concentrate on maximizing his own potential rather than trying to replicate Ronaldo’s style.

Lawrenson emphasized that Garnacho should focus on developing his own game, acknowledging that he will never reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Alejandro Garnacho needs to just be himself and play his own game. He’s never going to be Cristiano Ronaldo!” Lawrenson told Paddy Power.

“He’s not going to score a wonder goal every week, but he has to be a seven or eight out of ten each week – he can do it, he added”

He stressed the importance of consistency, urging Garnacho to aim for consistent performances at a high standard, even if not producing wonder goals every week.
