Johnny “Football” Manziel pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo with touchdown celebration (Video)

Johnny Soccer?

We think we know where Ohio sits on the Messi v Ronaldo debate.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was unable to stop the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals, but he did put together one of the best sequences of his young career, driving 92 yards in just 10 plays to make the score 14-10 just before halftime.

Although the Bengals ran out eventual 31-10 winners of the Ohio derby, the man they call Johnny Football still enjoyed his team’s only touchdown immensely.

Perhaps in celebration of the imminent release of the Ronaldo movie, Manziel recreated the Real Madrid star’s signature celebration – albeit with a little less oomph.

If he’s not careful, they might start calling him Johnny Soccer.
