Barcelona Censor Footage Of Youth Player Copying Cristiano Ronaldo's Trademark 'SUIII' Celebration

Barcelona academy player Fermin Lopez decided to perform Cristiano Ronaldo's trademark SIUUU celebration during Sunday's win against Cornellà, but you wouldn't know it based on the club's social media post.

The highy-rated 18-year-old winger, who has come through the ranks at La Masia, scored a peach of a bicycle kick during Juvenil A's 3-2 win at the weekend.

He proceeded to jump in the air before spinning around and landing with his hands outstretched – a celebration we have come to expect at Old Trafford this season.

Lopez even screamed "SUIII" before his teammates joined in.

Twitter user @TimelineCR7 reposted the clip, saying: "FC Barcelona's academy player Fermin Lopez does Cristiano Ronaldo's SIUUU celebration after scoring a bicycle kick today.

"Ronaldo is hated in Barcelona. When you realise that, this is just insane."

Barcelona's official Instagram, an account with over 108 million followers, have since posted Lopez's strike on their page but the Catalan club have edited the footage so Ronaldo's trademark celebration has been cut out all together.

You can see that footage below.

Back in February, Ronaldo was told he was doing his SIUUU celebration too often by former England international Peter Crouch, who was known for performing 'The Robot' at one stage of his career.

"I think this needs saying as a public service announcement: the key to a good celebration is not doing it too often," Crouch wrote in his Daily Mail column.

"You don’t want anybody turning round saying: 'Oh, here he goes again.'

"I only did the robot three times on a pitch (more at weddings, obviously!) — in England friendlies against Hungary and Jamaica and, with Stoke, when I scored my 100th Premier League goal.

"You have to save them. Leave the punters wanting more. Think on, Cristiano."
