MONACO 3 REAL MADRID 1 Quarter-final, second leg, 2003-04
Modern football protocol dictates you don’t celebrate goals against former employers, especially if you’re on loan and your parent club are paying 65 per cent of your wages.
Not if you are Fernando Morientes... With Monaco 5-2 down on aggregate to a side including Raul, Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane, and with 45 minutes left, Morientes led an epic comeback. First he set up Ludovic Giuly (above), before his header – and celebration – gave the hosts genuine hope. When Giuly scored again, Real were finished.
“I’m going to enjoy this,” Morientes said at full-time. We’re sure he did.
