Cristiano Ronaldo finally explains the origin of iconic 'Siuu' celebration

As one of the best strikers of all time, Ronaldo’s goal celebration is remarkable as he has shown several times. It’s a scene that every football fan is used to seeing often. Cristiano Ronaldo launches into the air, turns around and shouts ‘siuu!’ before landing with outstretched arms.

During an interview, Ronaldo explained the idea behind the celebration.

He told Man United’s official website: “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 [in 2013] 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.”

The remote origin!

Just like Ronaldo himself, fans remember the celebration being born during the superstar’s time at Real Madrid. However, the origins of the move can be traced back to his first spell at Man United.

Back in 2008, Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in Man United’s 6-0 win over Newcastle. After converting a spectacular free-kick, the Portuguese celebrated in a similar way to the iconic celebration.

Ronaldo could not complete the celebration, but his movement is still similar to his ‘suii’ celebration.
