However, the 23-year-old Catalan midfielder, after achieving the goal, did not limit himself to that after he celebrated in the characteristic way of “Pulga” by taking off his shirt to show the audience his name and number, as the Argentine super had done star in 2017 at the “Santiago Bernabeu”.
This move seems to have bothered the Los Angeles FC central defender, Giorgio Chielliniwho disarmingly “detonated” Pudge.
In particular, the experienced Italian, passing in front of the point of the mixed zone as the young midfielder gave statements, exclaimed the word “clown” with the ace of the Galaxy not flinching.
In fact, this specific celebration seems to have also angered the fans of Los Angeles FC who, when they saw this move, were quick to “decorate” Pudge with many beautiful adjectives.
