Following on from Captain Alzheimer’s post of Players Who Have Celebrated against their former clubs, I have decided to bring you an international edition of the story.
Wayne Rooney Vs Everton
Despite Everton having launched his career, Rooney always seems delighted to score against his former employers. His celebrations have caused a lot of tension among the Merseyside faithful.
Emmanuel Adebayor Vs Arsenal
The Togolese striker managed rubbed salt into the wounds of Arsenal fans when he scored for Manchester City against the Gunners at the Etihad Stadium. He ran across the entire length of the field before dropping onto his knees in front of the travelling crowd.
Samuel Eto’o Vs Chelsea
This time it was Everton who was on the right side of the goals. The Sampdoria striker found the back of the net for Everton against the Blues in what was a crazy 6-3 loss for the Toffees.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic Vs Barcelona
What would the world by without Zlatan? Boring, that’s what! The Swedish traveller left Barcelona under controversial circumstances, in which he never held back his disapproval for the club. He then really got under their skin when he struck against Barca in a Champions League clash for PSG.
Robin van Persie Vs Arsenal
The Dutchman’s transfer to Old Trafford left the whole of the Arsenal congregation in uproar. When his former club travelled to Old Trafford he silenced the angry fans with an emphatic goal and celebration.
Which celebration stands out for you?
