The Secret Behind Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Siii' Celebration

One of the most iconic goal celebration method which was invented by Cristiano Ronaldo, a Portuguese and Manchester United star. The celebration has gained popularity from all corners of the globe.

How is it done?

Whenever Cristiano Ronaldo scores a goal, he runs to the corner flag and jumps very high while turning his back to the crowd when he is about to land, he says, "Siiiuuu." Also, his team's crowd also backs him up by shouting the name.

What does 'Siii' really mean?

Siii is a Spanish term meaning 'Yes' in English. By doing this, it's like he is saying Yes I have just scored!

When did it start?

This type of celebration started when Cristiano Ronaldo was at Real Madrid. In 2013, Chelsea were playing against the Los Blancos in the United States of America. Cristiano scored a goal against the former England rivals and did the Siiiuuuu celebration.

Cristiano Ronaldo's teqm mate, Jesse Lingard performed the Siiiuu celebration after the Portuguese star signed for Manchester United.

Also Carlo Ancelloti mimicked Cristiano's Siiiuu celebration during a UCL match.

Cristiano Ronaldo told Manchester United Tv in an interview, "When I scored goals, the Spanish crowd would shout siii which means yes in English. So I just found myself saying it whenever I score; it was natural."

However, Cristiano further claims that the celebration is very powerful that's why he does it often. "For sure it came natural and it is very powerful. Most fans love it and they are always reminding me, "Cristiano Siiuuu!"

Indeed, this celebration is very popular even you could see kids playing football then all of a sudden, one scores and performs the Siiiuu celebration. It is of great impact as it spices up the game despite of most people don't know it's meaning. Arguably, it is among the best goal celebrations currently.
