Bayern Munich star Serge Gnabry has explained that his goal celebrations are inspired by NBA star James Harden.
The German star, who has scored nine goals in this season's Champions League, has a unique celebration as he mimics cooking routine.
"There's a video on YouTube where he's cooking after dropping, I think, a buzzer-beater and won the game," Gnabry explained. "So he was cooking, stirring it up, and that's the celebration," he told FCBayern TV.
Gnabry, 25, is a big basketball fan and regularly watches matches from the USA's league, the NBA. Having seen Harden in action, Gnabry wanted to produce the cross-sport celebration for himself.
"I think you can relate the celebration to him having a buzzer-beater or winning the game to us, as in football we don’t score as many points as they do in basketball," Gnabry said. "So I think there's a resemblance and he's a very good offensive player, I'm an offensive player so, I think so too."
Gnabry has continued to produce the iconic celebration into the present day, and was able to show off his cooking skills on 12 occasions during the 2019/20 Bundesliga season on his way to winning his second Bundesliga title.
