Cristiano Ronaldo May Have Picked Up Injury Doing His Trademark 'SIUU' Celebration Against Arsenal


Cristiano Ronaldo May Have Picked Up Injury Doing His Trademark 'SIUU' Celebration Against Arsenal

Cristiano Ronaldo is a 'major doubt' for Manchester United's Premier League clash against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon after he reportedly suffered a knee injury performing his 'SIUUU' celebration.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner played a key role in the club's 3-2 win over Arsenal on Thursday night, scoring a brace in Michael Carrick's final game as caretaker manager.

After netting both goals, Ronaldo went on to perform his iconic celebration; a mid-air pirouette that ends with him - and the majority of Old Trafford screaming "SIUUU" as he lands on the ground.


It's a celebration we have become accustomed to over the years but on Thursday evening, shortly after scoring a penalty to make it 3-2, the 36-year-old injured his knee, according to The Sun.

That being said, Ronaldo sprinted the length of the pitch shortly after, busting a gut to join United's counter-attack.

He was eventually replaced by Anthony Martial in the 90th minute and cameras spotted him running down the Old Trafford tunnel.

Manchester United's new interim manager Ralf Rangnick would have been hoping to use Ronaldo in his first game as manager against Crystal Palace.

The former RB Leipzig and Schalke manager praised the experienced forward in his first press conference on Friday.

"You always have to adapt your ideas of football - or your style - to the players you have available. Not vise versa," said Rangnick when asked how the former Juventus forward fits into his philosophy.


He continued: "When you see Cristiano yesterday in the second half, at the age of 36, amazing. Top professional. At his age, I have never seen a player who is still so physically fit.

"He is still a player who can easily make the difference. It is about how we develop the whole team, not only Cristiano.

"What I saw from Cristiano yesterday, he is more than willing to put his input into the team and his teammates will do the same."


Thoughts on Ronaldo potentially missing out tomorrow because of an injury sustained while celebrating?
