Fans Shout 'SUIII' When Cristiano Ronaldo Jr Celebrates Like His Dad After Scoring For Man Utd U12's

Footage of Cristiano Ronaldo Jr recreating his father's iconic 'SUIII' celebration is doing the rounds on social media after the youngster scored for Manchester United U12's in their recent win against CEF Gironès-Sàbat.

The likes of Ronaldo Jr and Kai Rooney have travelled to Spain to represent United at the MIC Cup – an international youth tournament based in Costa Brava that welcomes a selection of the world’s best academies.

Earlier this week, Manchester United's all-time top goalscorer Wayne Rooney wished his 8-year-old son, Klay, the best of luck in his first tournament.

And it hasn't taken long for United's crop of youngsters to make an impression.

Shola Shoretire's brother Tunde, who recently assisted a Kai Rooney screamer against Manchester City, managed to find himself on the scoresheet, as did Edson Dejonge-Seiros, Joseph Deighton, Eddie Wright and of course, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.

The youngster showcased a poacher's instinct against CEF when he got his toe to a free-kick from the left hand side.

Ronaldo Jr then proceeded to run to the corner flag and perform his father's famous celebration as fans inside the stadium shouted "SUIII" in unison. How good is this?

Ronaldo Jr, who signed for United's youth academy back in February, has been impressing fans with his footwork in training of late.

As you can see in the footage below, the 11-year-old can be seen getting the better of others in a session.

The former Real Madrid forward certainly sees some potential in his son's talent but in typical Ronaldo fashion, he still believes there is plenty of work to be done before making it professional.

"We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer," he said in 2020. "He has potential. He is fast and dribbles well, but that is not enough.

"I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success. I won’t pressure him to become a footballer, but if you ask me if I want him to, yes I would like it.

"The most important thing is to become the best at whatever he does, whether it is as a footballer or a doctor."
