Anyone know what Salomon Kalou’s goal celebrations were about last night?
Crossed arms gesture arouses controversy
Thanks to Middlesbrough’s laughable attempts at defending corners, Salomon Kalou bagged both of Chelsea’s goals at Stamford Bridge last night (see the other one here). He followed each with a ‘hand face mask’ and ‘crossed arms’ celebration.
Some are saying it was a gesture in support of Ivory Coast political activist Antoine Assale Tiemoko, while others believe he really likes the X Factor. A spokesman from Chelsea’s Incredulous Exuse Department, however, believes it was a completely arbitrary celebration:
“He was just trying out a new celebration and it was a crossing of the arms.
“He also sometimes puts his hand over his face like a mask.”
Just trying out a new celebration? Did he hold a focus group afterwards, to help him develop new celebrations for future games?
If anyone knows what it was really about, pray tell below…
