The word “Siuuu” stems from the Spanish word Si which means yes. In an interview in 2019, the former Juventus forward confirmed the meaning of the word and the origin of the celebration.“I started to say ‘si’, it’s like ‘yes’ when I was in Real Madrid. I was in the USA and we played against Chelsea [in 2013] and I don’t know where this is coming from, the celebration.”

Delving further on the origins, he mentioned that the celebration came very naturally to him. “I just scored the goal and it just came out. It was just natural, to be honest. Since that, I started to do it more often and I feel like the supporters and the fans see it and they’re like ‘Cristiano, siiiiiiuuuu’. I’m like ‘wow! People are reminded of me because of it!’ So it’s good, and I’ll continue doing it like that.”
