Vinicius Jr honors Cristiano Ronaldo with ‘Siu’ celebration after securing hat-trick in Spanish Super Cup triumph

Vinicius Jr has matured into an all-round player. The Brazilian moved to Real Madrid for big money for a boy of his age in 2018 and has grown into one of the best attacking players of his generation. He is a bright spot in the team and always uses his trickery and pace to get past defenders and create goalscoring opportunities for himself and his teammates.

Vinicius Jr showed his maturity by putting three goals past Barcelona on the biggest stage possible as both teams clashed in the Supercopa final, which was hosted in Saudi Arabia. The Brazilian celebrated his first goal by doing the iconic ‘Siu’ celebration in honor of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was also in attendance on the night.

The Brazilian, who recently showed off his collection of NBA jerseys, was handed the Portuguese star’s iconic No. 7 jersey, which was a show of faith by Real Madrid to the youngster, and Vinicius has repaid every bit of the faith shown in him.

Two-time La Liga and one-time Champions League winner Vinicius Jr has achieved a lot at just 23, and he added one more trophy to his name yesterday when he scored a hat-trick against Barcelona in the Spanish Supercopa final.

The Brazilian celebrated his first goal by doing the signature ‘Siu’ celebration invented by Cristiano Ronaldo as a way to honor his idol.

Speaking on the celebration after the game, Vinicius Jr said, “I did the Siu celebration for Cristiano Ronaldo. He is my idol.”

Vinicius Jr speaks on his critics’ hatred

The young Brazilian has been through a lot in recent times as far as racial abuse is concerned. Due to his resilience and his ability to not back down from issues, Vinicius has made himself an easy target for abuse in recent times, as he’s always targeted in stadiums and even on social media, something he has come out to condemn many times, and thankfully, he has the support of his club and colleagues in the sport.

“I’m very sad because everyone wants to fight with me because they know it will come out in the media. I am not a saint. Sometimes I talk too much, do dribbles I shouldn’t do, but I am here to improve,” the young forward admitted.

Vinicius is a tricky player, which has earned him a lot of praise from his club fans but quite the opposite from his detractors. He went through another episode against Barcelona, as his dribbling quite unsettled Barcelona staff and players, including Sergi Roberto.
