Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo's new celebration is already a massive hit in the football community, with several players imitating it across various leagues. Considering the 37-year-old's enormous popularity worldwide, there seemed little doubt that the Portuguese international's latest celebration would catch the eye of fans around the world.

The Portuguese international, whose celebration has now become a massive hit, first performed it after scoring his 700th club goal against Everton at Goodison Park.

Cristiano Ronaldo's new celebration explained

After Cristiano Ronaldo performed his new nap celebration instead of the usual siuuuu celebration, Manchester United took to their club website and provided the reasoning for the same. "We can now reveal that Ronaldo’s celebration was a self-deprecating in-joke with his fellow team-mates, highlighting the strong bonds among the players in Erik ten Hag’s squad," wrote the Red Devils.

Manchester United's explanation for Ronaldo's new celebration hilariously added, "CR7’s celebration at Everton was amusingly a nod to the position in which he sleeps when travelling with the squad, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by his team-mates who are all eager to learn from him."
