Sadio Mane mimicked Cristiano Ronaldo as the Portuguese forward performed his signature celebration after scoring in the quarterfinal of the Arab Club Champions Cup. In the most dangerous frontline in a summer transfer window that saw a significant inflow of quality to the Saudi Pro League, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane have teamed up at Al Nassr. After leaving Bayern Munich, Mane transferred to the Saudi club and started his debut game for his new squad. Read on to see the famous Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal celebration.
Although the two have slowed down in recent years, they continue to be a dynamic and dangerous duo. Ronaldo relished having a fresh top-tier winger alongside him. As the Saudi team defeated Raja Casablanca of Morocco 3-1 to advance to the semifinals of the Arab team Champions Cup, Ronaldo scored the first goal.
Ronaldo’s goal gave Al Nassr the lead with a skillfully executed left-footed strike after Anderson Talisca had set him up on the edge of the area. The celebration that followed saw a humorous interaction between the Portuguese star and his new Senegalese love interest when Ronaldo requested Mane to join him in performing his signature “Siuu” dance.

Snaps from the viral video:
The video shows Ronaldo performing his signature motion while Mane imitates him in the background with a jump of his own, and the crowd also yells out with the distinctive’siuu’ call. This is not a brand-new occurrence for the former Liverpool winger, who is well-liked by supporters of his old club for frequently imitating the celebrations of his attack teammates, such as the flamboyant Roberto Firmino, who is currently making a living in Saudi Arabia. Mane has made fun of the fact that Firmino imitates him rather than the other way around in the past. Watch the video at
Ronaldo will be hopeful that Mane’s addition to the Al Nassr squad would help the team win both the league championship and cup victories. Al Nassr did have the top spot when Ronaldo joined them in a sensational transfer from Manchester United last December, but it fell as Al Ittihad won the competition.
With three goals in his last three games, the 38-year-old has recovered some form and will try to continue it into the upcoming league season alongside Mane. The Senegalese player was substituted during their quarterfinal game, but he will look to score for his new team against Iraq’s Al Shorta on Wednesday.
