Cristiano Ronaldo’s influence on football is second to none. The Portuguese has inspired a whole generation of superstars. Joao Felix, Erling Halaand, Vinicius Junior, Kylian Mbappe, Dusan Vlahovic all of these exciting young talents grew up idolizing Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo’s influence is not only confined to the football field as different sportsmen all over the World are seen doing the Ronaldo celebration. SIIIIUUUUUUUUUU.
Cristiano Ronaldo has had a good season with Manchester United but he has failed to inspire his team to any silverware this season. Ronaldo is Man United’s top scorer in all competitions and he has scored a total of 22 goals for the Red Devils.
Ronaldo’s Man United future is pretty much uncertain after Man United have failed to make the European spots. The Portuguese is also linked with an unlikely move to Camp Nou as Xavi has personally asked Laporta to discuss terms with Ronaldo’s agent.
Cristiano is the player with most goals against Barcelona and despite being a constant pain to the Catalan side, the Barcelona youngsters continue to take inspiration from the Portuguese.
One such player is Barcelona Juvenil A youngster Fermin Lopez Merin. In their División de Honor Juvenil game vs Cornella Juvenil A, Fermin Lopez scored an acrobatic overhead kick and went on to celebrate like Cristiano Ronaldo doing the iconic SIUUUUUUU celebration.
The Division de Honor Juvenil is the Spanish League for players aged 18 and under. FC Barcelona Juvenil A currently sit first in group 3 and they won the game vs Cornella Juvenil A 3-2.
Fermin Lopez’s astonishing overhead kick equalized the game for Barcelona U18 and set them on their way to an impressive 3-2 victory. Although it is understood that Cristiano is a very hated personality in Barcelona, but there are a number of Barcelona youngsters who take inspiration from him.
