Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have replaced the ‘Siu’ with a new celebration and fans are loving it.
The Manchester United superstar returned to the starting XI after being banished from the first-team for his refusal to come on as a substitute against Tottenham.
He led the line and found the back of the net nine minutes from time to complete the scoring at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo scored his side’s third goal after smashing home from close range.
And as the Portuguese forward wheeled away in celebration, he ditched his trademark ‘Siu’ celebration and performed the same gesture he did against Everton.
Redemption for Ronaldo!!
CR7 manages to get his name back on the scoresheet following a difficult few days for his club…
He pointed to the stands then stood upright with his head back, eyes closed and fingers crossed in front of his chest.
Ronaldo produced the same celebration after scoring Man United’s winner against Everton earlier this month.
Fans online are loving it and think it’s another iconic celebration.
One Twitter user wrote: “Cristiano Ronaldo might have just invented the second greatest celebration ever… From SIUUUU to ‘inner peace’, I love it.”
A second tweeted: “This Cristiano Ronaldo celebration is really epic.”
A third added: “Ronaldo has replaced the SIU with this celebration and I love it already.”
A fourth commented: “I’m loving this new Ronaldo celebration.”
Another said: “Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration is cold.”
Ronaldo’s celebration is a ‘self-deprecating’ nod to the position in which he sleeps when travelling with the squad, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the rest of the team, hence why Antony joined in on the celebration at Goodison Park.
On the club’s official website, they explained: “We can now reveal that Ronaldo’s celebration was a self-deprecating in-joke with his fellow team-mates, highlighting the strong bonds among the players in Erik ten Hag’s squad.”
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will be hoping to retain his place in the starting XI when Man United resume their Premier League campaign on Sunday against West Ham United.
