Former Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed the true meaning behind his famous ‘Siuuuu’ celebration.
Ronaldo has earned a reputation as one of the world’s top footballers over the span of two decades.
However, it was during his time at Real Madrid that he started displaying his unique ‘siuuu’ celebration.
The 38-year-old star, currently representing Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia, is renowned for his signature move: sprinting away after scoring, executing a mid-air pirouette, and exclaiming the word ‘siuuu.’
When Ronaldo gracefully lands from his jump, the crowd often joins him in chanting the word, creating a resounding wave of noise that reverberates throughout the stadium.
However, not everyone is aware of the exact meaning of’siuuu’ or even its correct spelling.
The legendary Portuguese international explained the meaning behind the celebration in an interview with LiveScore.
LiveScore Official Global Brand Ambassador Ronaldo said: “It means yes – very simple but meaning it strongly!”
Ronaldo doesn’t limit his celebration exclusively to the pitch. In 2014, he made headlines by passionately shouting the word during the Ballon d’Or ceremony, eliciting a varied reaction from those present.

“The scream? The players know I always do that shout when I score a goal or when we win,” Ronaldo told Spanish TV channel Cuatro afterwards. “It’s our shout, from Real Madrid.”
Since departing Real Madrid in 2018, Ronaldo has maintained his iconic celebration, showcasing it during his stints at Juventus, Manchester United, and now Al Nassr.
The seasoned forward has had numerous opportunities to display it since his move to Saudi Arabia, finding the net 14 times in 15 matches following the switch at the conclusion of 2022.
