Why Ronaldo does ‘Siuu’ celebration
Ronaldo’s signature celebration has become a viral hit after his move back to Manchester United in August.
From school playgrounds to courts at the Australian Open, kids and athletes alike have been mimicking the Portuguese by throwing their arms out and yelling ‘Siuuu’ at the top of their lungs.
But it’s certainly nothing new and has been used by Ronaldo during his time at Real Madrid and Juventus, as well as when scoring for Portugal.
Infact it’s almost a decade since Ronaldo first performed the celebration against Chelsea in it’s current form during a 2013 pre-season friendly.
And the United forward revealed when it came about as a way to feel more connected to the Real Madrid fanbase.
Speaking in 2019, he said: “I started to say ‘si’, it’s like ‘yes’, when I was in Real Madrid.
“When we would win, everyone would say ‘siiiii’ and so I started to say it. I don’t know why, it was natural.”
