Mark Goldbridge had one of the most animated Manchester United fan celebrations for Alejandro Garnacho’s stunning goal.

The 19-year-old scored perhaps one of the best goals in Premier League history as his overhead kick flew in just three minutes into Man United’s clash against Everton.

It stunned a Goodison Park crowd that had been lively from the off as they protested their ten-point Premier League deduction.

Such a goal takes immense effort to score and is worthy of winning a match on its own, with Garnacho the latest player to pull it off.

United fans across the World were have unsurprisingly been wild in their celebrations, with talkSPORT’s Goldbridge left absolutely stunned.

“What a goal! It’s probably goal of the season, absolutely fantastic,” he shouted on his United Stand live stream.

“That’s better than [Wayne] Rooney, that’s better than bloody Rooney!” he added in reference the legend’s overhead kick against Manchester City in February 2011.

“That’s fantastic, my Christ, what a bloody goal by Garnacho! Star boy? Bloody NASA need to get a hold of him, he’s more than a star, he’s a bloody planet!”

His goal is one of the most iconic strikes in Premier League history, especially considering it was a late winner in a Manchester derby.

However, Goldbridge is not the only fan to think that Garnacho’s strike is better as former captain Gary Neville stated his claim.

After seeing the strike go in, he said on Sky Sports commentary: “I can’t believe it.

“I don’t thing I’ve ever been in a stadium where I’ve seen an overhead kick that good, and I was there for Rooney’s against Man City.”

Garnacho’s goal is his first in the league this season for United, with his other strike coming against Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup.
