Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo reacts to K-League All-stars copying his ‘SIUUUU’ celebration after scoring against Juventus in the pre-season friendly match.
Juventus took on K-League All Stars in a pre-season friendly match. The match ended in a 3-3 draw. However, the highlight of the match was not the goals but a celebration of one. Brazilian Cesinha, scored a goal in the 45th minute to put the Korean side 2-1 ahead before half-time. He then celebrated the goal by performing Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘SIUUUU’ celebration.
The 29-year old was partnered by 2 of his teammates who all jumped in sync. The camera later panned towards Ronaldo, who looked less than impressed at the imitation. The 34-year old had a very interesting expression on his face as he looked less than amused. It is possible though that he was just annoyed at conceding a goal so close to the half time break.

Fans were looking forward to seeing Ronaldo play. However, the Portuguese never came off the bench. The crowd became increasingly agitated and chanted for him to be subbed on. When that didn’t happen, they began chanting Messi’s name, possibly out of spite.

Coming back to Cesinha, the Brazilian is clearly a Ronaldo fan. Not only did he mimic the goal celebration, he even asked for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s shirt at the end of the first half in the thrilling 3-3 draw.

The ‘Siuuu’ celebration comes from the Spanish word ‘Si’ meaning ‘yes’. The Portuguese began using the celebration when he was in Real Madrid. He claimed that it was the team shout and screamed it famously after winning the Ballon d’Or in 2015.
