Ghana winger Osman Bukari clears the air on imitating Cristiano’s trademark celebration

Osman Bukari has defended his decision to imitate Cristiano Ronaldo’s trademark celebration during Ghana’s 3-2 defeat to Portugal in the 2022 Group H opener on Thursday night.

The 23 year old climbed off the bench to score what turned out to be only a consolation goal late in the game.

He performed the ‘Siu’ celebration which has raised some eye-brows. However, the Black Stars attacker has cleared the air on his social media page.

Bukari wrote on Twitter: “I have noticed my celebration today has generated comments claiming I was disrespectful towards Ronaldo. This is incorrect.

“I was overcome by the emotion of the moment of scoring for my country on my World Cup debut leading to my celebration.

“My upbringing doesn’t permit me to be disrespectful to elders let alone one of my idols.

“Thanks for your support and we focus on our next game!”

Ghana will look to bounce against South Korea on Monday while Portugal take on Uruguay later on the same day.
