In the video, Ronaldo can be seen signing a fan’s shirt as supporters surrounding him continued to call his name and hold out pens and memorabilia.
The forward takes a look up at the crowd before putting both hands up – slightly different to his iconic El Clasico celebration against Barcelona at Camp Nou – and gestured for the fans to ‘Calma’.
The former Real Madrid striker doesn’t utter a word after making the hand signal and simply moves on to the next person in line.
Some fans understood immediately what message Ronaldo was trying to send as shouts of ‘Calma! Calma!’ are heard from behind the camera.
Barcelona fans had been whistling and jeering at Ronaldo before he did the celebration in 2012
The Portuguese forward scored from an acute angle to give Madrid a 2-1 win on the night
Ronaldo performed the gesture after scoring the winner against Madrid’s fierce rivals in 2012.
In the match, Madrid had taken the lead thanks to Sami Khedira’s 17th minute effort before Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez levelled in the second-half.
But, of course, Ronaldo had to have the final say on the night. In the 73rd minute, he ran onto a through-ball from Mesut Ozil and smashed his effort past Victor Valdes.
Instantly, the Madrid No. 7 turned to fans and gestured for them to be quiet – given their jeering and whistling towards Los Blancos throughout the game.
The 37-year-old forward led United’s front-line in their league clash with West Ham recently
Despite his struggles both on and off the field for United this year, Ronaldo is clearly still worshipped by United fans.
Last month, the 37-year-old was axed by manager Erik ten Hag after he refused to come on a substitute before storming down the tunnel during the win over Spurs.
Having made amends with the former Ajax coach, Ronaldo has been reinstated in the United squad and has started the last two games for the Red Devils. He made a scoring return in the 3-0 win against Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League last week and played the full 90 minutes of the victory over West Ham on Sunday.
The 37-year-old will be hoping he’s once again leading the United front-line when they travel to Real Sociedad in the Europa League tomorrow night.
