Fans spot awkward moment Richarlison ruins Kulusevski's goal celebration leaving his Tottenham team-mate baffled | The Sun

DEJAN KULUSEVSKI was not best pleased after Richarlison appeared to ruin his pre-planned goal celebration.

The Tottenham winger capitalised on Matt Turner's poor clearance to blast in his side's second goal of Friday's 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest.

His powerful right-footed strike was too hot for Turner to handle and the American goalkeeper could only deflect the ball into the back of the net.

And Kulusevski clearly wanted to perform a very specific and touching celebration to dedicate the goal to someone special.

The Sweden international's stunning fiancee Eldina Ahmic is currently pregnant and the footballer was keen to go public with the news in a lovely way.

But his idea to put the ball up his shirt to replicate a growing baby bump was thwarted by Richarlison.

The Brazilian forward was at the back post when the goal was scored and immediately grabbed the ball as it bounced out of the net.

And as Kulusevski ran away in delight, the ex-Everton man booted the Nike yellow Premier League ball into the stand of celebrating Spurs fans behind the goal.

So when his team-mate came over to do the celebration, he was very confused to find no ball ready for him and gave Richarlison a puzzled look.

He then appeared to tell the £60million man to go and fetch one of the spare match balls at the side of the pitch while he started off with his LeBron James-style 'Silencer' move.

And Richarlison duly obliged, throwing Kulusevski a ball which he then stuffed under his top and made a heart with his hands for the camera before blowing a kiss to the camera and giving the ball a peck.

The masked goalscorer and his glamorous partner – who currently have a dog and got engaged in May – shared a joint Instagram post on Friday night with pictures of the celebration.

They captioned it: "Our family is growing, see you soon baby girl."

But while there were plenty of comments congratulating the happy couple, others could not get over the hilarious moment with Richarlison.

One said: "Quite funny that Kulu has obviously told the players about a pre-meditated celebration with the ball but Richy still boots it away, then has to go and get another."

Another wrote: "Kulusevski wanted the ball for a baby celebration as he is becoming a father… Richarlison decides to smash the ball away not knowing!"

A third added: "Kulusevski is becoming a dad and Richarlison almost messed his celebration up."

And a final user commented: "Why did Richarlison kick the baby? No Richarlison, no kick the baby."

Tottenham's win at the City Ground saw them move on to 33 points – level with fourth-placed Manchester City and six clear of Manchester United.
