CRISTIANO RONALDO just keeps on delivering the goods for Man Utd.
Since returning to the Premier League this summer, Ronaldo has bailed his side out a number of times with some crucial goals.
The 36-year-old looks set to smash through the 20-goal barrier this season and that will give him the more opportunities to perform his now infamous ‘Siu’ celebration.
Why does Cristiano Ronaldo do his ‘Siu’ 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 he moved back to the club that it is a celebration which made him 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.
“I was in the USA and we played against Chelsea and I don’t know where this is coming from, the celebration.
“I just scored the goal and it just came out. It was just natural, to be honest.
“Since that, I started to do it more often and I feel like the supporters and the fans see it and they’re like ‘Cristiano, siiiiiiuuuu’.
“I’m like ‘wow! People are reminded of me because of it!’
“So it’s good, and I’ll continue doing it like that.”
Over recent weeks, the trends seems to be growing – and no more so than in Australia.
Andy Murray was left baffled by the crowd after his marathon victory over Nikoloz Basilashvili in the first round.
It sounded to the Scot like boos were raining down on him from the stands, but tennis fans took to Twitter to reveal it was people imitating Ronaldo’s ‘siuuu’.
