The 36-year-old looks set to break the 20-goal barrier this season and give her more opportunities to carry on her now infamous ‘Siu’ celebration.

Why Cristiano Ronaldo Celebrates His ‘Siu’?

Ronaldo’s signing ceremony became a viral hit after he moved to Manchester United back in August.

From school playgrounds to the courts of the Australian Open, children and athletes alike imitate the Portuguese, spreading their arms and shouting ‘siou’ at the top of their lungs.

But it is certainly nothing new and has been used by Ronaldo during his time at Real Madrid and Juventus as well as scoring for Portugal.

It’s actually been almost a decade since Ronaldo first celebrated in his current form during a 2013 pre-season friendly against Chelsea.

And the United forward revealed when it came as a way to feel more connected to the Real Madrid fanbase.

Speaking in 2019, he said: “I started saying ‘c’, it’s like ‘yes’, when I was at Real Madrid.

“When we win, everyone will say ‘siiiiii’ and that’s why I started saying it. Don’t know why, it was natural.

“I was in the USA and we played against Chelsea and I don’t know where it’s coming from, fest.

“I just scored and it just came out. It was natural to be honest.

“Since then, I started doing it more often and I think supporters and fans are watching it and they’re like ‘Cristiano, siiiiiiuuuu.

“I’m like ‘Wow! People remind me because of this!’

“So that’s cool, and I’ll continue to do it that way.”

In recent weeks, the trends have been increasing – and not more so than in Australia.

Andy Murray stunned the crowd after his marathon victory over Nikolai Basilashvili in the first round.

Scott looked like he was being booed from the stands, but tennis fans revealed on Twitter that they were copying Ronaldo’s ‘siu’.
