Man Utd fans named ‘worst limbs of the season’ after Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty

Man Utd fans have been named the ‘worst limbs of the season’ after Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty against Arsenal back in December.

The celebrations at Old Trafford came after Cristiano Ronaldo tucked away his 801st goal of his career, and so far, 18, of those have come in all competitions for United this term, with CR7 getting a brace as the Red Devils won 3-2 against Mikel Arteta’s side.

It was a classic with Bruno Fernandes cancelling out a bizarre goal from Emile Smith Rowe before Marcus Rashford provided Ronaldo with his 800th career goal.

Martin Odegaard picked out the bottom corner with a comfortable finish to level the scoreline but the former Read Madrid player fouled Fred in the box with 20 minutes remaining, giving that man Ronaldo a chance to make it 3-2.

He converted the spot-kick and ran towards the corner in front of the Stretford End before performing his ‘SUIIII’ celebration.

Footage of it was soon was uploaded, it has gone on to be awarded the ‘worst limbs of the season so far’ award by popular Twitter account @FootyLimbs, who have nearly 100,000 followers.

It’s not just the lacklustre effort to celebrate the goal, but many fans are seen videoing on their phones, with one lad filming his face reacting to the spot kick with his back to it.

As Man Utd fans are named ‘worst limbs of the season’ after Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty, Twitter users gave their own reaction to it…

@foxual13: *limb

@arguebarmis: Haha so glad I don’t support a tourist club. Feel sorry for the real fans. They must be mortified by these narcissists.

@harrry006: We’ve had some class ones but that’s the problem with these tourist areas

@fcwhufc: This is why I hate United. Not real fans just social media Ronaldo fanboys

@Ginger_Pirlo: Tourist FC

@97_affan: Everyone on their phones coming to see Ronaldo most likely. Most Manchester United fans have never been to Manchester let alone Old Trafford but the ones that do…absolutely terrible. More of a franchise than a football club. Too bad they have a big stadium don’t deserve it.

@silvercue: That’s Man Utd for you. Decades of glory hunters. Almost all of the stadium would have been heading 50-300 miles home after the game.

@dalejohnson0501: Embarrassing club

@KingyfromLeeds: I did better limbs than this when I was in the home end celebrating Ayling thunderbolt 😂😂😂

@TLSalute1919: No wonder Ronaldo is sick of mobile phones

@CPFC_Cosmo: If you’re watching the game on your phone screen as you film it just go home and turn on Sky Sports, what is the point in being there. Watch the game back on MotD, no point filming it

@luff28: Fuck me so bad

@tickers23: More limbs from the stewards…

@barnabynickels: Horrific. Everything that’s wrong with modern football at the top level

@jstevens123: What is all this mobile phone shit. It’s literally on the tele when you get back from the match 🤷‍♂️

@whild13: Horrible 🤢

@phildavies79: Thats terrible

@BenjaminGrocott: Man stood there recording his own face for it all 😭

@walkerhmfc: Jesus fucking Christ! This is English football for you, give me the Scottish game anyday

@BradTalbot1993: Limbs? That doesn’t even constitute the word! It’s basically just a video of everyone videoing a penalty.

@FreerMichael: Embarrassing.

@JPUTD2: It makes me so mad. Live in the moment stop recording everything on your phone. Embarrassing

@RubenKooi: People standing with there back to the pitch so they can film thereselfs with the goal should get a stadium ban.

@pengtux1: This is genuinely fucking awful.

@AaronMc_92: This is actually sad

@AshleyRLuke: I am gobsmacked at that! Shocking. You’ve just seen one of the world’s greatest ever footballers score for your team and that’s all you got??? Hang your heads in shame @ManUtd fans

@jackwag70996757: that’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life, bunch of knobheads

Someone wants to be Social Media famous 🤮
Not even looking at the penalty. Too many more interested in filming rather than enjoying the moment.
Dreadful “celebrations”
Is this the famous Stretford End 🤔

@caitlinjmx: This is us whenever ASM does a step over

@_LukeFazz: This should be illegal

@fcwhufc: This is why I hate United. Not real fans just social media Ronaldo fanboys
