Cristiano Ronaldo opens up on ‘Siii’ goal celebration
Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that the goal celebration for which he is now associated with, was merely a “completely natural” reaction to scoring while at Real Madrid.
It was in the summer of 2013 that he gave his famous “Siii” a first run out.
Explaining the origin of the move which see him spin in mid-air before landing with his arms outstretched, Ronaldo told Soccer.com: “It was when we were playing Chelsea in the USA and I really don’t know how it came about.
“I scored and it just came out. It was completely natural to be honest.
“Afterwards, I realised I enjoyed it and started to do it more often. I saw that the fans liked it and that they’d remember it so I carried on doing it.”
Ronaldo went on to net 51 times for Real in the 2013/2014 campaign before raising that tally to 61 the following season.
