Real Madrid celebrate with crotch slaps

OK this is just embarrassing! If you’re a Real Madrid fan here is another reason why NOT to be one. Real Madrid recently celebrated a goal with crotch slaps. Yes that is correct…crotch slaps. The embarrassing moment came after the 7th goal in their 8-0 Copa del Rey win over Levante. Whether you’re a Real Madrid fan or not this behavior has nothing to do with the game and only embarrasses anybody who enjoys the sport of soccer. 

It’s incredible to see how out of touch some professionals are, including the world football player of the year, Cristiano Ronaldo. What can we learn from this besides the immaturity and lack creativity on the part of Real Madrid players?  For one, be creative in your goal celebrations and two leave any sexual references out of it. What were these guys thinking?! I mean, C’Mon man!

Below are some celebrations that are more interesting, fun and memorable. Enjoy these and hopefully we never see anything like the crotch slap again.

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
