They are allowed to do it but will soon pay taxes - Kudus reacts to Garnacho and others copying his celebration

West Ham’s Mohammed Kudus has responded to Alejandro Garnacho’s emulation of his celebration during their team’s recent loss against Manchester United. The Ghanaian winger, who has been a standout performer for David Moyes’ side since joining from Ajax, addressed the curious incident in a light-hearted manner.

In February, United secured a comfortable victory over The Hammers at Old Trafford, reversing a previous 2-0 defeat suffered at the London Stadium. Kudus, who scored the second goal during that match, celebrated by sitting on the advertising boards—an unconventional move that caught the attention of fans and pundits alike.

Reflecting on his unique celebration, Kudus explained to The Guardian that it was simply a spontaneous decision aimed at entertaining the supporters. “I just thought about something out of the box, and then some other people followed it up,” he said. “There’s no deeper meaning. I just see it as entertainment, something to make people happy and worth the ticket that they bought. I’m still just having fun in the playground.”

However, the plot thickened when Alejandro Garnacho, a United player, replicated Kudus’ celebration after scoring his second goal in their 3-0 win at Old Trafford. Rasmus Højlund and Kobbie Mainoo joined him, creating an iconic image that sparked discussions among football fans.

When asked about the inspiration behind the celebration, Garnacho remained coy, saying, “The celebration, there is some inspiration,” with a wry smile.

Now, nearly two months later, Kudus has addressed the Garnacho moment with a cryptic comment. When questioned by The Guardian about United players “copying” his celebration, Kudus responded, “They’re allowed to do it. But soon, they will have to start paying taxes.”

Despite the playful banter, Kudus’ impact on West Ham’s squad cannot be overlooked. Since his arrival last summer in a transfer worth over 40 million euros, he has been instrumental in the team’s success, contributing 11 goals and three assists across all competitions.

As the Premier League season progresses, both Kudus and Garnacho will continue to showcase their talents on the pitch, providing fans with moments of excitement and entertainment. Whether it’s through unique celebrations or dazzling displays of skill, these players are sure to leave a lasting impression on the footballing world.
