Manchester United players have attempted the ‘#DeleChallenge’ – the latest football celebration craze which is taking over.
The Spurs midfielder debuted the mental hand gesture during his side’s win over Newcastle United on the opening weekend after putting Tottenham ahead in the 18th minute with what was the eventual winning goal at St. James’ Park.
Since then, we’ve all been trying our best to replicate the hand-sign and I, like a couple of Spurs players, really can’t quite get the hang of it.
But plenty of Manchester United players have mastered it, as shown on Jesse Lingard’s Instagram story. The United No.14 reckons Alli has nabbed his celebration and so has come up with the #JLingzChallenge – which is just the same as Alli’s just with a different name.
Andreas Pereira and Fred struggle big-time but the likes of Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Eric Bailly and Diogo Dalot nail it. Even singer and big Manchester United fan Olly Murs had a go.
Whoever came up with the “impossible” celebration, it’s become a viral sensation and it’s all everyone is talking about. We really hope that EA Sports are able to find a way to include it in FIFA 19 when it comes out in September because it absolutely needs to be in the game.
