The famous celebration has been copied by many players in recent years, marking the Portuguese superstar’s influence.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic way of celebrating his goals has become exceedingly famous in recent years. Being one of the best strikers in the history of the game, the Portuguese superstar has made sure everyone has seen enough of his widely copied celebration.

Former Portugal international Paulo Sousa, who is the current coach of the Poland national team, has spoken about Ronaldo’s celebration in a new interview with

The Sunday Times


"The feedback I had from his coaches is that even from that age, everything he did was focused on achieving as much as possible,"

Sousa said when asked about Ronaldo’s performances before his breakthrough at Manchester United.

"I loved his celebration [when Ronaldo ripped his top off after scoring a late winner against Villarreal in the Champions League this season].

"The way he commemorates his goals is a statement: ‘I am here'."

Since his appointment as Poland’s manager earlier this year, Sousa has worked with

Robert Lewandowski

as his team’s main striker.

"He is always demanding, to myself and my staff,"

Sousa added when asked about the Bayern star.

"Any time we are talking about our opponents, showing the analysis and explaining our strategy for the game, he always has questions.”

"He is one of the most clever players I ever coached or played with.


Poland crushed San Marino with a 5-0 result on Saturday. Sousa’s men will face Albania in a crucial World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.
