When Isco scored against Sporting Gijon this weekend for a big 3-2 away win, he debuted a goal celebration we’ve never seen before: He put both his hands out with his thumbs, index fingers and pinkies up — he did the hand signs for, “I love you.”
In case you forgot, his celebration looked like this:
But why? Well, it was a sweet gesture for a young Real Madrid fan he met before the game.
The little girl speaks sign language on behalf of her deaf parents and taught him the sign for “I love you” at a meet-and-greet. She said her parents would love to see him do the sign if he scored. That was a week before he would score his goal vs. Gijon, but he remembered it and happily obliged.
