Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siuu’ celebration is widely regarded as among the best celebration with many great players from across sports replicating the celebration in the last few years. The Al-Nassr and Portugal forward has revealed the reason behind the celebration which he did after a goal against Chelsea in 2013 in a pre-season friendly.
The celebration is a trademark goal celebration that sees Ronaldo perform a mid-air pirouette before exclaiming "si!", which is Spanish for "yes!", upon landing. The celebration is an expression of delight at scoring a goal. The former Real Madrid forward said that it was a spontaneous reaction and that he did not plan it beforehand and mentioned that he liked the sound of "si" and that it came out naturally. Since then, Ronaldo has done the celebration countless times, for Real Madrid, Juventus, Al-Nassr, and Portugal.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner said at the celebration, “It seems to have grown into its own global phenomenon - and I love when I see other players doing it, or people send me videos of people in other sports doing it or little kids doing it - it's great. It means yes - very simple but meaning it strongly!”
Ronaldo mentioned that the celebration was not planned and it came out naturally and went on to say that he likes to be associated with it by the fans. The Portuguese is currently playing for Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League and scored 14 goals in 16 matches last season for them. The Euro winner also said that he will continue to do the celebration whenever he scores a goal.
