He may be the cover star and the best player on the game, thanks to his wonderful 94-rated card, but Cristiano Ronaldo is already grinding the gears of fans aplenty on FIFA 18.

The four-time Ballon d'Or winner has a brilliant set of attributes such as 90 pace, 93 shooting, 90 dribbling, 82 passing and 80 physicality, making him an absolute machine, and the the absolute top dog on the game, which will be released worldwide on 29 September.

His running style and way of playing has been captured perfectly courtesy of the impressive 'player motion technology' that has been introduced in FIFA 18, and the realism continues with CR7's signature "Siiiu!" being included.

Any time the Portuguese star finds the net, players have the ability to celebrate by getting him to race over to the corner flag, twist and jump in the air, hoist his arms out and belt out his catchphrase, which he revealed was Real's "team shout" when speaking to Spanish TV channel Cuatro after his Ballon d'Or win in January this year.

As seen above, Ronaldo has been recorded shouting "Siiiu!" and so every time he scores a goal against you, to make matters even worse, you have to listen to the 32-year old screeching and rubbing salt in the wounds.

Fans on the FIFA subreddit are clearly not a fan of the move and have been voicing their opinions. On a thread titled 'Ronaldo's voice during celebration takes cringe on a whole new level', here are just a few of the responses:

While you can't complain about the realism EA have instilled given that Ronaldo celebrates every goal in the same way, it's going to be incredibly annoying when your opponent is choosing that celebration on a regular basis. The sound makes for extremely painful listening...
